Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness: Twilight to Starlight

Just in time for the 25th Anniversary of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Frank & Pat delve into Disc 2: "Twilight to Starlight"! This time they're joined by comedian, actor, producer, author and good friend,  DC Pierson (Stay for Dinner, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), who discusses his history with and rediscovery of the tracks off of this iconic blue CD. We go deep on songs that are scary but rule, the Mountain Dew rush of "1979," and Regis & Kathie Lee inspiring "Thirty-Three."  All that plus songs tailor-made for Chino of the Deftones, Gene Shalit lateral segues... and is the "King of the Horseflies" actually Trent Reznor?  

If Siamese Dream were an epic movie, Mellon Collie would be a majestic Broadway play. Billy Babe-Ruths this concept and knocks it out of the park with "Twilight to Starlight," capping off a stellar double-album that became an instant classic. Coil this 'kast 'round your bumblebee ears!
