Jericho welcomes “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to the show.
Austin informs that he’s always been a huge music fan. He recalls his parents listening to the music of their generation even as they aged, and he couldn’t understand why they didn’t move on to new music as the years passed. Now he finds himself stuck in the 70s, 80s and 90s, listening to bands he enjoyed during that time. He notes that some of his favourite bands from that time include The Scorpions, Boston, Whitesnake and April Wine.
Austin mentions that he’s a fan of multiple musical genres including metal. He’s a huge fan of Iron Maiden, and he’s been listening to Five Finger Death Punch’s new record a lot as of late.
He informs that his father played guitar in an old country band, so he grew up listening to a lot of country music. As a teenager he bought a bass guitar for just over $200, but that was a big financial commitment at that time. He made every payment until he eventually paid it off, but he never really learned how to play it.
Austin notes that he’s a huge KISS fan and he had every one of their albums growing up. Unfortunately, he was never able to see them in concert. At one point they came within an hour of his hometown but he couldn’t convince his father to drive him there.
