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".
Is the Album recorded only from Detroit?
Last year, Godsmack performed at Q-Ruption, we noticed there aren't any songs from The Oracle, is there a reason for that?
There are 4 songs on the new album that are covers that inspired you, why these four?
The songs are from Joe Walsh, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Metallica. You already toured with Metallica - of those bands who would be the coolest to tour with?
Any new music or what plans does Godsmack have in the future?
So where is the best rock crowd?
Shannon adds about performing on festivals "We love to play outdoor amphitheaters, I like the wind blowing, while Sully says "oh yeah the humidity is fantastic"!
Fans submitted photos to be on inside cover of Live & Inspired, how hard of a task was that?
Both say be ready to be smacked with Live & Inspired. The album will be in stores Tuesday May 15th. It really does rock and is a very well produced live album.
