We’re back from our Summer hiatus with a show on how to survive the “pro” audition! It’s kind of a sad news day as we explore why Chris Slade left AC/DC, talk about the passing of Tommy Ramone, and how both Tim Alexander and Dennis Chambers wound up in the hospital!

In the news, we talk about KFC hating on drummers, Korn says “no” to Dave Silveria, the greatest metal drummer brackets from Loudwire, NIN’s new record, and the Eiffel Tower as an instrument.
