Welcome, rocker nation, to a brand new episode of Rock it Out! Blog. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines.
This week’s panel consists of Consequence of Sound Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman, WKQX-FM host Lauren O’Neil, and JBTV host Greg Corner. We begin by discussing Tyler Creator being banned from the UK for 3-5 years because the government finds his lyrics offensive, and whether this is an extreme case of political correctness.
Inspired by recent comments from Quentin Tarantino, also discuss which modern day film directors are deserving to be on a movie version of Mount Rushmore, and if the original lineup of Guns N’ Roses will finally reunite now that Axl and Slash are friends again.
We also bring you sneak peeks of our interviews with Riot Fest founder Mike Petryshyn and with the Canadian blues-rock duo Black Pistol Fire from Lollapalooza.
