Talkin’ Rock with Trans Siberian Orchestra’s Joel Hoekstra and Jeff Plate Download

35:03 Download September 17th, 2021

After cancelling last year’s tour and just doing a live stream T.S.O. are back for another run of your Christmas favorites. 

Guitar virtuoso Joel Hoekstra is up first. We talk about what he’s been doing during the pandemic, his various other projects (Whitesnake, Cher, Solo) the Seattle Rock Camp coming up, and lots more. 

Then (around the 19 minute mark), it’s drummer Jeff Plate. He tells me about his time during the pandemic, his other band, Alta Reign, and the famous T.S.O. rehearsals. He also answers the question of what he thinks founder Paul O’Neill would’ve been doing during the lockdown, and his thoughts on some of the rockers we’ve lost recently, including Metal Church vocalist, Mike Howe. 

Enjoy!
