    Default Adam Carolla talks VAN HALEN

    Adam Carolla is advertising the new Van Halen album on his podcast, starting with today's episode. He also talks with Dana Gould a little bit about the band. Nothing new or revealing, but just thought I'd mention it here.

    Listen here: http://www.adamcarolla.com/dana-gould-2/

    Wasn't he trashing the hell out of DLR and VH to a degree in a podcast a year or so ago when he had Sam on it?

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I'm sure Adam has a little more time on his hands since "The Car Show" on Speed got cancelled...

    He's a good amateur race driver and sometimes funny...

    I just don't know how his opinion carries any weight in regards to VH...

    You are in the minority, I hear few people with a lukewarm opinion on Adam, usually he's either loved or hated on a Dave vs Sammy scale of definitiveness. For the record I love him.

    To recap for those that wont listen, after the ad he just marvelled at the obscene amount of money theyve left on the table along the way through inactivity/stubborness. How theyre one of the few bands where their sound is so distinctive you know its them instantly. He also talked about how being in a top band is the perfect powderkeg for dysfunction. So nothing that hasnt been talked about on here for years.

    Whether you discount his opinion, the bigger point is that Carolla is the number one podcast and his prime demographic is middle aged white males...which is the core Roth with VH audience at this point. The marketing on this launch has been really really smart. If it sells or doesnt sell time will tell, but its not for lack of effort in the promotion department.

    I mostly agree - I love Adam Carolla, but not because of his politics (which I can't always argue against) or his general attitudes on life and other issues, but the dude is funny as hell and those who turn their noses up at entertainment that isn't on TV and at the idea of listening to podcasts are really missing out. As Adam puts it, this arena of entertainment is still the "Wild West" and there are no major corporations, executive producers or censorship entities around to ruin the medium yet. Adam has built a tiny empire - which he refers to as "The Pirate Ship" - in this medium. His show is very well produced, very funny and always entertaining. He has an entire Pocast Network - an umbrella company under which many other podcasts are produced, including his own "CarCast" and "Ace On The House", his wife's "For Crying Out Loud", comedian/actor Larry Miller's "This Week With Larry Miller" and formerly, the best movie podcast on the web, "The Film Vault" (but they're independent now).

    I don't know if Carolla's target audience is really "middle-aged white guys" - as I don't think many "middle aged" people give a damn about podcasts. I'm 31 and have been a fan of Carolla's since the late '90s when he was the comic relief on the syndicated radio talk show Loveline with Dr. Drew.

    Anyway, the whole podcast network runs on advertisement spots which Adam reads himself, either pre-recorded or as live, in-show reads. And I can't recall Adam ever doing ads for a specific musical act or upcoming album, but he certainly seems to have jumped at the chance to hock the new Van Halen. Whether he has bashed Roth, Sammy or Eddie in the past or not, I'm sure it was never very personal, but more an observation about circumstances. He certainly had nothing but praise for the music itself.

    Just thought it was interesting how hard Interscope is working to get the word out about this album, especially utilizing new mediums like the world of Podcasting. That's pretty forward thinking, I'd say.

    He bashes anything he thinks needs bashing, and he's often right. Loved him since Loveliness and love his show. He'll even have me watching Celebrity Apprentice this season.

    I listen to his show but am perpetually weeks behind, so I haven't heard this yet, but he's had Sammy on and STP, both favorites of mine, and the shows were entertaining.
