    Good stuff! Now THAT'S what I like to hear! I want to hear my musical heroes talking about their musical heroes. It's a linear connection that is very interesting to listen to.

    Good stuff - Makes you wonder how many of these will float out to everyone at some point. Would love to hear more

    These sitting on stools talking about the old days and influences clips are just great.
    Maybe if they put a concert dvd this entire conversation will be on it too?

    Lots of laughter there. Was that a parting shot at Justin Beiber being gay? Interesting. Everyone hates Bieber, of course. I find that interesting. I have always suspected that DLR is closeted so if he truly was, that's a bit of a shot. Hope it doesn't come back to bite him one day.

    I love DLR, but he sure comes off as gayer than the rest of the guys. Maybe it's all just show after all.

    Love the stuff about their musical heroes and them staying away from the pat answers about Ed and Al's drum/guitar start with the paper route and everything. It seems Ed it more willing to trot out those answers than Al is. Al seems to want to go deeper.

    It's especially awesome that they are putting this stuff out for free. Hats off to you, boys.

    It doesn't matter, no. They're still awesome. I've always suspected DLR was gay. Doesn't change the fact that they're awesome or I'm willing to pay big money to go see them. Doesn't in any way mean it's a topic that should be off limits.

    Love it. Alex talking more in this one. Nice insight into the "we switched instruments" story. So Eddie really was just a natural from the start apparently and Al said to himself, "I'd better learn drums instead".

    Not sure Eddie was too willing to give up the idea that he invented things.

    Also surprised to learn how far back the double kick drum thing goes. I always assumed that was a 70s thing.

    I never got a gay vibe from Dave myself. I'll say the same thing about Paul Stanley and Prince. They are "out there".

    I say this as a 100% straight guy who paints his nails black, wears flamboyant outfits and jewelry, and wears some eye liner during shows. (I've even played at a lot of gay clubs)
