Sevendust
I've wanted to talk music with Lajon Witherspoon for years!  Life teaches that patience is rewarding in due time!  So LJ and I finally connected and it was a pleasure to discuss the release of Sevendust's 9th album "Dark Out The Sun".  Sevendust is one of the hardest rocking and working band around.  The new album delivers the contrasting aggression and heartfelt intensity that Sevendust is known for.
