Mötley Crüe's legendary bassist and founding member Nikki Sixx came by Going Off Track with his Sixx:A.M. bandmates DJ Ashba (Guns N' Roses) and James Michael for what, as you might expect, was a very different episode of Going Off Track. The topics discussed include how the music industry has changed over the past few decades, how selfies have ruined concertgoing, what happens when you google "blood in your urine" and the genesis of Sixx:A.M. (Okay, maybe it's not that different.) We also discuss how they stay healthy after so much hard living and how the group's tight-knit relationship informs their music. "We're really proud of the fact that we're so close so we continually push each other," Sixx says at one point. On a more serious note we also discuss how the members of Sixx: A.M. coped with the tragedy at the Eagles Of Death Metal concert in Paris, why it affected Sixx in a deeply personal way and how it inspired one of the songs from their new double album Prayers Of The Damned. Sixx:A.M.

Coheed And Cambria frontman and recent Brooklyn resident Claudio Sanchez came by Going Off Track to talk about how he balances his band with his line of comics, children books and toys. We also talk about the possibility of adapting his epic tales into TV or film, what you do when you find out your drummer can't do a European tour an hour before you're supposed to leave and the new Star Wars film. Finally we get into more band drama, you know, like the time their old bassist robbed a Walgreens for drugs on tour—and, on a less dramatic note, how Sanchez conquered his inherent shyness. "Even when we toured on our first album I had a problem dealing with the attention I was getting," Sanchez admits at one point. "I've been doing this since I was 12 years old and so there's definitely been moments where we almost broke up but I think ultimately we all love music and that's what keeps us together."

Our guest bailed and it was April 1st so Jonah and frequent guest host Benny Horowitz (The Gaslight Anthem, Bottomfeeder) decided to interview each other. Over the course of 90 minutes your favorite hosts discuss current sports controversies, their thoughts on the upcoming presidential election and the proper airport etiquette for 2016. We also talk about the way social media has affected society, why nu metal won't seem to go away and how John Goodman was cast to play what is supposedly the best baseball of all-time. At times this is rambling at times it's goofy but at it's core it embodies what Going Off Track is all about. In fact we're pretty glad that our guest didn't show up because it gave us the chance to get personal and bond over lukewarm Budweiser—so sit back, crack a tallboy and listen up. The Gaslight Anthem Jonah Bayer
