One On One With Mitch Lafon

Artist: 

PRETTY MAIDS singer Ronnie Atkins guests on Ep. 280 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.

LINK TO INTERVIEW: https://www.spreaker.com/user/talkingmetal/1on1-mitch-lafon-280-pretty-maids

In this episode, PRETTY MAIDS singer Ronnie Atkins discusses the band's fantastic new album KINGMAKER, KISS, working with famed producer EDDIE KRAMER (KISS, Jimi Hendrix, etc.) and Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen, guitarist Ken Hammer, the band's history, the North American market place, NORDIC UNION and much more.

QUOTES from the interview:

Making new music (time 1.20): "When you are ten years (old), you dream about making music that people would like and go on the road and play it live in front of people. That motivation is still there."

The band KISS (4.58): "I remember the first album I bought from KISS was DESTROYER - to me still that's a great album. It's just one of the great albums from my childhood.

Eddie Kramer as a producer (6.36): "I think we expected something else. For a band from Denmark - the record company wanted us to have an American producer, so Eddie Kramer's name came up and he had a pretty good CV (like KISS, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and stuff like that). He was a very nice guy but for producing an '80s hard rock/heavy metal band - he was a little over the hill to be honest."
