Excited to announce I will have just added to my schedule a trip to Bogota Colombia to be a special guest 8/15 at Rock al Parque. Really appreciate all the support from Colombian rock fans over the years and I look forward to my first visit.

    The Wilbur ain’t a bad venue. And if you walk 200 feet down the street, you can see where Aaron Hernandez (allegedly) killed his first two victims.

    I’m not that familiar with KD, but I like how he created a persona (like Marilyn Manson or Kiss). It lends to the great drama of metal (provided the songs are there of course).

    Great podcast with King Diamond and Brian Slagel. But how come no discussion with the firing of his former bass player Hal Patino?

      It was recorded before that happened, thanks

    As soon as I got home from work this morning (I work a 10 hour over night shift) I listened to the podcast with King Diamond. What a great interview! He sounded like he was in a awesome mood and I could tell he really enjoyed being on the podcast because he talked his head off. I’ve heard other interviews with him before but he never came across as being as excited as he was talking on your podcast. Great, great job Eddie! I was sad when it was over. I could have listened to KD talk for another hour or two and I think he would have been more than happy to keep on talking. I noticed a long time ago that you have a way with your interviews in making the people you talk to feel comfortable and that definitely seemed the case with King Diamond. Again, great job!

    I thought King Diamond did a pretty good job of explaining his belief system. I came away thinking it’s not like he’s that nanny in The Omen sent to care for Damien (called an apostate of Satan), or the kind of guy would rejoice at the possession of Regan in The Exorcist. I would submit that he’s more Pagan than Satanic. Any Pagans in Eddie’s audience can set me straight if I misread this.

    I got the sense that all the dark theatrics–and to this Catholic KD was one of the darkest in his heyday–were more a matter if embellishing his agnostic beliefs with tried-and-true horror-show imagery. Remember, Black Sabbath named themselves after a horror movie. Not saying KD is not for-real, just that unlike I thought in the early days when I bought all his records and went to see him every time he came through town, he does not worship the guy who Charon is ferrying people to in the song “Charon.”

    When I first heard “Melissa” I thought, for all the trappings of Devilishness in metal, this artist sounds like the real deal, a guy you wouldn’ want tending your pet goat. Who knows? From Eddie’s incisive interview, I got a better idea of some of the health problems KD has had, which I’d only heard surface references to before. Perhaps he used to be more on the patently evil side, then heard mortality knocking and decided to embrace the more Pagan and less overtly Satanist side of his nature.

    I checked ticket availablity in Seattle, the closest Diamond venue to Portland. There’s 175 tickets left in the nosebleeds. Party on, Wayne.
