Doc welcomes Bullet For My Valentine lead guitarist, Michael “Padge” Paget, to the show to talk about how BFMV has maintained so much consistency over the years, his philosophy of personal humility despite great success and fame, how the UK metal scene evolved out of obscurity with breakout artists like BFMV, what is was like working with producer Colin Richardson and having massive early success, the pain of losing band members, the downside of success and how money and excess almost destroyed the band, and how the pandemic has affected the UK and shaped their prospects to start playing live.
This episode features the songs “Whiskey Mistress” by Beneath the Hollow, “Obscene” by Halcyon Wander, and “No Easy Way Out” by Bullet For My Valentine.
