E20 Spike Francis

Below you can find the full video podcast episode from our YouTube channel. To listen on all other platforms, click here.

On this episode I am joined by classic metal head Spike Francis, a singer, songwriter & guitarist bringing to life all things metal in his animated musical web-series project: Spike’s Guitar Camp. Spike gives us an extra special treat, sitting down with me in full face paint from the cockpit of his flying V spaceship. You certainly don’t see that every day! We had such a fun conversation about all aspects of Spike’s past, present & future – the former of which was spent as a legit rock star, playing guitar for the legendary Dee Snider in the 90s, as well as having his band managed by Nikki Sixx & Tommy Lee of Motley Crue. Spike’s experience has taught him a lot about life & the music industry and it’s given him a lot of unique perspectives on the world. It’s a real pleasure to have Spike share that with us and this episode was a hell of a lot of fun to record! I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation just as much ❤️
