During the interview segments of the two-hour show, Patton and Rollins discussed Patton’s new band, Dead Cross. Patton recalled that when he was asked to join Dead Cross, he thought: “I’m a fifty year old man – almost fifty – do I wanna do a hardcore band at this age? Can I do it?

The pair discussed a wide range of musical artists including George Clinton, Bad Brains, and Chet Baker. Patton also dropped a potential bit of news when Rollins asked him how many albums he made with his other supergroup, Tomahawk. Patton exclaimed, “There might be one more!” Here’s hoping.
