About
After touring the world with Avenged Sevenfold for 20 years, Johnny Christ sits down to have conversations with some old friends, some new friends, and people of all different walks of life to hear the stories that shaped their lives and careers. The truth is, we never really know where these conversations are going to go. Sometimes we play a game for some less than thrilling penalties, get lost in the middle of LA, and even just kick back to celebrate a holiday or two.  Sometimes we drink, other times we don’t drink at all. From cocktails to health shakes, the drink is just a nice icebreaker to loosen up our guests for the wild ride they’re about to embark upon. Whatever it is you're looking for, we're sure to have it on the menu here at Drinks With Johnny. So stay tuned, stay thirsty, and stay FILTHY AF!

Josh also has a very special message for Spotify & Apple Music (hint: F_ _ _ Y _ _ ) Johnny shares some insight behind the inspiration to the next Avenged Sevenfold album, and gives a behind the scenes story about the Nightmare tour. Josh shows of his church in eastern Pennsylvania, and presents his idea for a Tim Burton-esque theme park. This naturally leads to the real question of the day: when will Walt Disney finally unfreeze himself and revel in the empire he’s created!

After a decade since touring together, I catch up with an old friend in Andy Black of Black Veil Brides. We get into the band’s latest studio release, The Phantom Tomorrow, and talk about the process of creating this album over the last year.

Stooging Around to Fill Some Time

What happens when Johnny Christ calls and says let's go to Las Vegas tomorrow? A wild night out, a wicked hangover to follow, and of course this week's almighty filler episode! After a wild time with Sammy Hagar in Vegas, we cool things down by getting the Drinks With Johnny crew together for a mid-season meetup to shoot the shit and preview what's left to come in Season 3. We chat about threesomes, glory holes, and the last time Johnny was in a mosh pit. There's a *super brief* preview of the now-infamous Stix golf outing episode that's coming later in the season (or next week, who knows!) and we also get a look at the special rooftop performance by Sammy Hagar & The Circle in Las Vegas.  Before we close things out, our favorite whiskey connoisseur Fred Minnick stops by for a cameo, and we're joined by Bobby Schubenski, Josh Balz, & Beez from the Space Zebra crew as they broadcast live from Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky.

Fresh off the release of their latest studio album Dearly Beloved, Daughtry frontman Chris Daughtry joins the show. Fifteen years after the release of their self-titled debut album, Daughtry is back to reclaim their crown and evolve into the rock band they originally sought to become.  Chris opens up about the path that led to this latest record, and how splitting from the band’s label really allowed for full creative freedom to write rock songs. We take a deep dive back into Chris’ path through American Idol, and what it was like to live in an isolated compound for the duration of the show. Chris also shares the one thing he wishes they would have allowed him to do on the show. We fast forward to 2019 and chat about Chris’ stellar performance as the “Rottweiler” on The Masked Singer. Chris reveals the challenges of performing in a mascot costume, and the secrecy of that shrouds the show in general.  We get back to Dearly Beloved and discuss the creative process going into the project. I reveal which song from the record would make the perfect backtrack for a sports montage video package (take note NFL and UFC), plus we talk about Chris’ fascination with comic books and how it’s come to light in the band’s latest music video.

Kelly explains the differences between the many governing bodies in boxing, and exposes the fees associated with being a World Champion.

EC3

This week we’re graced by the presence of a true legend in the making as professional wrestler EC3 and his right hand man JC join the show to talk about their latest project Free The Narrative. Being a podcast run by wrestling fans (if you haven’t already figured that out by now) it was truly refreshing to watch the cinematic wrestling experience they put together, and pick their brains about the behind-the-scenes process.  We take a unique look at the wrestling industry together and discuss why today’s product is more driven by the advertisers over the fans. EC3 talks about how certain wrestlers are never given the chance to get over, why he became miserable during his WWE run, and how The Narrative has become a third act of sorts for his career. JC gives us a unique peek behind the curtain of the production process behind The Narrative. We learn about his history with Mushroomhead, and how the band played a part in creating the score for the project. We also learn about what MONSTROUS names might be featured in the next iteration of The Narrative. Of course it wouldn’t be a true episode of Drinks With Johnny if we didn’t touch on drinking, drugs, and everything in between, so get ready because EC3 & JC came to party!

Madusa

This week I'm honored to be joined by a true PAVER in WWE Hall of Fame wrestler & Monster Jam star, Madusa! We start this bad boy out with a cocktail I dubbed Madusa on the Rocks, but Madusa comes up with even a better name. Then we sit down and get into Madusa's near 20-year tenure with Monster Jam. We find out just how she was able to carve out a niche for herself in the monster truck world, the struggles of having absolutely ZERO training before starting, and the fun pranks that she pulled on the guys before their races. I pull out a nice surprise for Madusa myself, as we introduce a new drinking game to the mix - Cocktail Checkers. Things get heated as Madusa's true competitive nature shines through during the game. We continue the chat by getting into the beginnings of Madusa's wrestling career; from the first training session, to her debut in Japan, sketchy cage fighting in Thailand, and her eventual rise to the WWF as Alundra Blayze. Madusa reflects back on the struggles that women faced in the sports entertainment industry, and how she was able to help pave the way for where women's wrestling is today. She lets the TRUTH out about her infamous phone call with friend-of-the-show Eric Bischoff (sorry, Eric!) Truth be told, there's so much to unpack in this chat that this little write up won't even do it justice. Just know - I think I made a new best friend, and hope you enjoy the UNCUT chat with Madusa!

Darby Allin

Our favorite hoodlum Darby Allin returns to the show for an in-depth interview about his life in & outside of the wrestling ring. Of course we'd be remiss not to talk about the TNT Champion's spectacular cinematic showcase with legend Sting. Darby reveals his first interactions with the Stinger, and how his background as a (failed) film student helped to influence the promos we see on AEW programming. Darby explains what led to his decision to ultimately drop out of film school. Here's a spoiler: it involves an inflatable boobie and a bathroom stall. Yup, that's a real thing. We take an even deeper dive into the absurd as Darby recalls his ridiculous antics as a dollar store employee. Broken feet, TV commercials, and chocolate pudding are just a taste of the chaos... It wouldn't be a true Darby Allin interview without someone trying to slide across the floor unnoticed mid-chat. We also get into Darby's favorite punk rock groups, his thoughts on Gigi Dolin, why you'll never see him wrestling in a high school gymnasium, and what it was like to work with the late great Brodie Lee. There's so much packed into this episode, that we even had to bring back The Hangover - and believe us, you DO NOT want to miss this one!

The trio is then joined by "the man behind the shadows" Marvin Torres, longtime friend of the Avenged Sevenfold camp & tour manager for A Day To Remember. Marvin connects the dots for Johnny, Adam, and Neil by recalling a drunken series of events that puts them all in Atlanta at the same time without even realizing it. Another spoiler: it ultimately ends with Johnny bringing home a t-shirt from the Clermont Lounge... (go ahead and throw that one in the Google machine kids). All of this plus an update from Fletcher, Marvin taking on 100 McNuggets, the most awkward meet & greet experience possible, and much more on another round of Drinks With Johnny!
