The album features guest appearances by several of Wright's musical peers including keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater/Billy Idol), guitarist Lanny Cordola (House of Lords), vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie Malmsteen), Troy Luccketta (Tesla) and the late Mr. Big drummer, Pat Torpey.The album's 11 tracks also illustrate Wright's impressive songwriting ability as he either wrote or co-wrote all nine original songs on the album. Also included is an edgy, intense version of Bjork's “Army of Me” along with a soulful, Celtic-rock take on the The Youngbloods classic, “Darkness, Darkness.” Chuck also produced and engineered most of the album.Sheltering Sky exhibits a diversity and breadth of musical styles that embraces facets of Wright's hard rock legacy while also delving into a more varied side of Chuck's musical vision with well-written songs that feature ethereal guitar work, tasteful, soulful 70s era influences, Prog, Jazz Fusion and even a bit of heavy funk. Besides his usual outstanding bass work as performed on a variety of different bass instruments, Wright also contributes on keys and acoustic guitar on several tracks.The new single from Sheltering Sky is Throwin' Stones, a fierce and passionate call for the end of armed conflict, a call which couldn't be more perfectly timed for today's world. It features a heavy funk groove that emphasizes Wright's powerhouse playing and the various playing techniques for which he is known.Wright is best known as a long-time member of multi-platinum heavy metal band Quiet Riot. He originally joined Quiet Riot in 1981, playing bass on the tracks "Metal Health (Bang Your Head)" and "Don't Wanna Let You Go," as well as singing background vocals on all tracks from the 1983 multi-platinum album Metal Health, which was the first metal album to ever reach #1 on the Billboard 200 chart (in November 1983).He performed, toured the world, and recorded with Quiet Riot on-and-off for 26 years…recording nine albums with the band, before departing the band again. As of now, he is no longer a member of Quiet Riot as he concentrates on his solo career and new album.Wright is featured in the documentary Quiet Riot – Well Now You're Here, directed and produced by Regina Russell.

We need to talk about W. Kamau Bell. The talented stand-up comic and popular CNN series host/Executive Producer (“United Shades of America”) has just made his initial foray into directing with the provocative and definitive 4-part Showtime docuseries, “We Need to Talk About Cosby”. When a cultural icon like Bill Cosby, who was once so beloved as to be referred to as “America's Dad”, is later convicted of using his power and prestige to rape women, the need to reassess his role in society, and the space he occupies in our collective psyche, becomes imperative. But it isn't until now, thanks to Kamau's skillfully crafted, sensitive and brutally honest series, that this important conversation is finally beginning to take place.   In our own frank and personal Top Docs conversation with Kamau, he discusses what it meant for him to come to grips with the dark truths that have been a part of Cosby's life for decades, but, which, until recently, were kept mostly hidden. What was it like for Kamau to approach dozens of people to participate in the documentary only to be met, time-and-again, with silence or rejection? Why was “The Cosby Show” such a powerful moment of identification for Black people in America and how did Kamau depict this in the documentary? How did Kamau and his creative team decide on a narrative approach to including the stories of the many survivors of Cosby's abuse in such a way that portrays them as more than just victims? And, when making the film began to take a personal toll, who did Kamau turn to for support and encouragement? Join us for this vital conversation about Bill Cosby… and about us. Rest assured, there is plenty to talk about. “We Need to Talk About Cosby” can be seen now on the Showtime Network and Showtime Streaming.   Follow on twitter @wkamaubell @topdocspod   Some Documentaries that Inspired Kamau: Surviving R.

Today's guests features two remarkable ladies (Carol Owen- President/Founder and Whitney Bradley- VP, Director of Marketing) that have redefined the relationship between BUYERS and SUPPLIERS for the Meetings/Events Industry. They have created networking opportunities in which all parties (regardless of influence status) are treated equally and valued the same. Imagine going to an event in which you are told, "the champagne is only for the clients." As Carol shares, "You are MORE than your business card." Each person at their events are made to feel special, elevated, respected while creating lifelong memories. All members of their events feel like they are included in the incentive experience! Brilliant. Whitney Bradley brings kindness, creativity, and human grace to the equation in working with Carol. Together they make a fantastic team that enlivens experiences while celebrating humanity! Retreats Resources is the culmination of “Mama Carol's” 40-year career in the group travel industry. As a subject matter expert on incentive travel, she's been a writer, a speaker, a panelist, a founding board member, an entrepreneur, a teacher, a mentor and a pioneer in the field of developing experiential incentives. Her work with Bellsouth, AT&T, Cox Communications, Showtime Networks, Time Warner and other media companies has been globally recognized for both vision and execution - and is the source of endless funny stories and treasured memories! Carol's profession and her passion are pretty much one and the same - she adores distinctive hotels that offer a unique hospitality experience, likes to understand their vision and help tell their story. From design to fine dining, from ambiance to “attitude,” from a sense of place to a sense of peace, she thrives on absorbing each experience and sharing what she has learned with others. That is the reason Retreats Resources was born! Whitney's combination of right brain/left brain packs a big punch when it comes to bringing a creative edge to all we do. She's poised to take the helm of Retreats Resources and expand our company footprint into the entire U.S. Her background of marketing and corporate event planning spans 20 years and includes past clients such as Verizon, Daimler Chrysler/Mercedes, Michelin, BMW Manufacturing Corporation, First Robotics, Bi-Lo grocery stores, BMW Motorrad, and the Homepoint (Music City) Bowl.

[00:00:50] Jamin Brazil: I'd like to start out with a little bit of context. Tell us about your parents and how they informed what you're doing today. [00:00:57] Steve Kantscheidt: It's funny that's where you started. When I was mentioning to colleagues what we were going to talk about, they've heard this story from me many times. I have always said to my mother that whatever I do, they are my partners. And my parents are pretty interesting people in the sense that both of them were high school dropouts. Sort of prepared themselves for more difficult lives than they perhaps needed, but they were incredibly smart, incredibly hard working, and in a lot of ways they were hustlers long before their time.

Paige Simpson is the Head of Development and Production at Rachel Brosnahan's production company, Scrap Paper Pictures, which has a first look TV deal with Amazon Studios. They recently produced YEARLY DEPARTED, is a one hour comedy special hosted by Phoebe Robinson starring Rachel Brosnahan, Tiffany Haddish, Patti Harrison, Natasha Leggero, Sarah Silverman, Natasha Rothwell, and Ziwe. The special serves as a funeral for the year 2020 where our comedians deliver eulogies about what we’ve lost this year including casual sex, TV Cops, wearing pants and everything in between. Previously, Paige was the Manager of Scripted Television and Production at Will Packer Media. While there, she worked on AMBITIONS for OWN and BIGGER for BET+, along with numerous other development projects. She also previously worked at Showtime Networks in Original Programming on The Affair, Billions, SMILF, Black Monday, Masters of Sex, and Dice. Before that, she worked for Viola Davis in many different facets. Paige graduated from Spelman College, majoring in Biology but found her true passion in storytelling while interning at BET with Tracy “Twinkie” Byrd and Michelle Adams in casting. During her internship, she assisted in casting Fruitvale Station, Being Mary Jane, and The Start-Up. Paige’s enthusiasm and love for this industry is palpable. I love that we seem to be cut from the same cloth; both having to blaze our own paths. I laughed. I cried (during editing). It was refreshing to commiserate and celebrate the ups and downs of the hustle. The hour flew by as we discussed: •Lessons from working with the queen @violadavis •The importance of keeping a group around you that loves and pushes you •Depression & self worth

It’s our latest edition of the show, as host T.J. Rives is back with special guests to get ready for this weekend in the ring and reminisce about one of sports’ all-time greatest upsets. First up, it’s Jr. Welterweight contender and former IBF Lightweight champ, Rober Easter Jr., joining the show. Easter is in training for the Saturday night February 20th contender bout with Ryan Martin on Showtime Network. Easter updates his training and his goals for a possible 140 lb. World Title fight later in 2021, should he score an impressive win. Then, Marquis Johns, Sr. Writer of BigFightWeekend.com, is back aboard going over the news of the week and previewing all of the action from California to Las Vegas to London, involving several World Championship fights and champion fighters in action. A championship doubleheader will take place in Indio, CA at the Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino, as California’s Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz Jr. will defend his IBF Junior Lightweight title against Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov of Uzbekistan in the main event. Meanwhile, the co-feature has Brazilian born, Patrick Teixeira vs. American Brian Castano for 12 rounds, for Teixeira’s WBO Junior Middleweight title. The guys also discuss the passing of Leon Spinks, the former brief Heavyweight world champ who defeated Muhammad Ali in 1978. Spinks and his brother Michael still hold the distinction of being the only brothers to win boxing Gold Medals at the same Olympics (Montreal 1976) and also, to both become Heavyweight Champion of the World. And, speaking of the Heavyweight crown and upsets, it’s the anniversary of an even more astounding one, as James “Buster” Douglas’ KO-ed Mike Tyson in February 1990 in an upset that still is amazing some 31 years later. T.J. and Marquis give their remembrances and analysis on how/why the upset of Tyson that derailed his career forever happened. And, how was former president Donald Trump involved in it all, as well?
