Martin Popoff – Top of the Bill on this week’s LeBrain Train – Friday Jan. 15

I am pleased to announce this week’s guest:  none other than Martin Popoff, Canadian music scribe extraordinaire!  Martin will be joining us to talk about his many books, YouTube shows, and assorted awesomeness.  It is a conversation I have been hoping to have for, oh, 20 years (give or take).

The LeBrain Train:  2000 Words or More with Mike Ladano

Episode 46 – A Chat With Martin Popoff

Join Super “Ironballs” Deke (who hooked it up with Martin), Uncle Meat and myself this Friday as we talk to the guy who, frankly, got me writing reviews in the first place!  It was Riff Kills Man that inspired me, a book that was passed around from friend to friend like a kid passes along a nudie mag.  “Have you ever heard Gillan?  Budgie?  Thin Lizzy?”  These were the words muttered as we handed the book onto the next recipient!

Martin’s extensive bibliography (he is the Isaac Asimov of Heavy Metal) includes definitive tomes on Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Rush, Motorhead, Max Webster and just about every other band with legendary status.  Through all that I kept my treasured copy of Riff Kills Man safely in my desk at work.  I’d write Amazon album reviews on my lunch break, and I had to have Popoff nearby to consult in case of confusion or doubt.

Please spread the word, and welcome Martin Popoff to the LeBrain Train on Friday January 15!

I will be taking the next few days off from writing and posting so I can focus on preparing for this show.



  1. Awesome guest. He was one of my favourite people to talk to. Definitely intimidating, but rewarding at the same time.

    It is telling how the mighty Lebrain has to prepare like this for a guest. That tells me how intelligent and special he is.

    Can you ask him:
    Do you have any updates on Pye Dubois over the last year or so?

    1. I can’t guarantee that we will get to any specific questions because we only have an hour and I’m letting Deke take the wheel on this one. We will do our best. I expect a bunch of questions to come in via the comments.

      It’s intimidating but he’s such a nice guy, I’m just looking forward to it.

        1. I’m sure it will be fun! Deke is the host this time since he hooked it up, and Meat and I are co-hosting. Meat because he has watched every single video Martin’s ever been in.
