The World Of Trans-Siberian Orchestra & Savatage
The World Of Trans-Siberian Orchestra & Savatage
Music writer/bassist Aaron Joy (former owner of Roman Midnight Music label/marketing) takes a look at the enigma that is the popular rock band Trans-Siberian Orchestra and its roots as Savatage. Loved by some, decried by others for leaving its metal roots; a rehash of past music or braving new musical frontiers; a band or a revolving door of musicians; past it's prime or the most revolutionary rock band out there? *** This show is in no way formally associated with TSO/Savatage or any of its participants or Night Castle Management. *** The show is now off the air. De to changes in the hosting site some of the episodes have been deleted, but all the episodes can be found on youtube.
