Anne Erickson

Hey, guys! I grew up listening to classical music, opera and musical theater, but somewhere along the way, discovered rock and metal. Hearing bands like Nirvana, A Perfect Circle, AFI, RED and Seether opened up a new world to me, and I’ve worked in the music business ever since. I graduated with a Master of Arts Degree in Theatre from Michigan State University and started working as a reporter for Gannett Michigan. I also scored my first radio job on an alternative station in Michigan. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Billy Corgan, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Metallica's Kirk Hammett and many more. Fun fact: I don’t like going to the movies. I can't sit still that long! Thanks for listening, and God bless!

Video Flashback: Soundgarden, ‘Black Hole Sun’

My grunge kick continues, as this week, I couldn’t get this nugget out of my head: Soundgarden’s 'Black Hole Sun.' Maybe it’s because Chris Cornell and the boys release their new album, 'King Animal,' on Nov. 13, so everything Soundgarden is fresh in my mind. Regardless of the reason, there’s no denying “Black Hole Sun” is a classic!
