Universal Music Group

Godsmack releases a live album called Live & Inspired tomorrow in stores, Sully Erna and Shannon Larkin talked to Q103 about the new album and how the Beatles really inspired them growing up!  No overdubs and straight up live Godsmack’s Live & Inspired has 13 live tracks and 4 songs that have inspired the band to become who they are.   Hear the interview now.

As Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin says.. “over the years, we developed into a great live band.  We thought it was time to put it out, we want it in our catelog.  We grew up on live albums Kiss Alive, Rush all the world’s a stage, Ted Nugent Double Live Gonzo, these were records that molded our lives”.
