After seven years and a new album going back to their roots, Staind front man says to expect the Thanksgiving show in Albany to be heavy.   Bud Light presents the Q103 Thanksgiving Hangover featuring Staind, Egypt Central and local band Pipebomb to the Washington Avenue Armory Saturday night at 7pm.  Aaron Lewis spoke to Q103 about Thanksgiving, the show and more.

I had the pleasure of talking to Aaron Lewis live in the Q103 studio's back in late August.  At that time, he said he wanted to play a Q103 Holiday show.  Well his people talked to our people and we talked to his people, we got it done and the Q103 Thanksgiving Hangover is this weekend.

Aaron Lewis took some time out of his busy schedule to talk about what is going on with the band Staind.  Part of the interview aired during the workforce request lunch hour, but if you missed it or wanted to hear the whole interview we got it here.
