Show Notes

We are closing the books on 2023 and that means it is time for the eagerly anticipated Hooks & Runs Best of 2023. This year we do not disappoint - here is a list of artists mentioned in the show, more or less in order: Brothers Osborne, Waxahatchie, Little Nax X, Saxon, The Weather Station, Nothing More, Michael Schenker Group, Gregor Barnett, Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers, Bon Iver, Rosanne Cash, Sufjan Stevens, Guns & Roses, Hollywood Roses, Boris, Iron Savior, Primal Fear, Metal Church, Overkill, Girlschool, Tygers of Pan Tang, Judas Priest, Foghat, Uriah Heep, Blue Öyster Cult, Eaerch, The Bug, Flowdan, Drive By Truckers, Sonic Youth, Coheed & Cambria, Deafheaven, Pestilence, Third Stone, Breaking Bottles and Shane Jenkins.

Artists making the cut in our respective Top Fives are for Craig, The National, Lydia Loveless, Margo Price, Slowdive and Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit. For Rex, it's Jag Panzer, L.A. Guns, Dokken, Nita Strauss and KK's Priest.

We opened the show with some thoughts on the Jonathan Owens interview on The Pivot -- the part about his marriage to Simone Biles.

Errata: The 2024 Olympics are in Paris, France. L.A. Guns is led by Tracii Guns. Axl Rose was a member of the Hollywood Roses with Izzy Stradlin. Slash, Stephen Adler and Tracii Guns had also been members of Hollywood Roses. Rex and Craig need to work on their Guns & Roses mythologies. Judas Priest guitarist Glen Tipton suffers from Parkinson's Disease.  Blue Öyster Cult released their last album in 2020 - the album before that was released in 2001.
