Today I have 2 amazing guest Alexis Bloom & Svetlana Zill, directors of the documentary Catching Fire the Story of Anita Pallenberg. I saw this documentary last week and I can't recommend it enough. Anita was a fantastic Actress, Model and a massive Muse to members of the Rolling Stones. Anita dated Brian Jones before finiding here way into Keith Richards life which quickly escalated in to a full on rock n roll outlaw adventure. This women's story is absolutely incredible and very dark and the Doc pulls No Punches. The Words come from an unpublished memoir Pallenberg wrote before her death in 2017, narration voiced by Scarlett Johansson.  Sit back and enjoy this episode and don't forget to catch the film in Theaters next week and streaming platforms around May 10th.

Years ago I saw one of the best leather jackets ever and had to find out where to get one. Turns out it was made by hand in NYC by non other than Jordan Betten at Lost Art Leathers.

haha I was just bashing The Elder the other day but I never really gave it a chance. Maybe I need to revisit as an adult like Dean says

I feel like Stoner Witch is the customary Melvins starting point, was for me. I'm sure most would say that or Houdini.

Awesome Interview. I loved how you geeked out together over watches, Dumble App's and other artists. I always thought John Mayer wasn't given enough credit for his guitar playing and intelligence. This whole interview proved that he is a genius, an investigator with wicked talent. Thanks for this inspiring conversation. I just need to check out all the albums mentioned and listen with new ears. My mind has been blown!
