Not only is Chris Shiflett an accomplished guitarist—both in No Use For A Name, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes and Foo Fighters—he also fronts his own group, the country-tinged Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants. But wait, there’s more: Shiflett also hosts his own podcast, Walking The Floor, where he interviews his friends and influences, ranging from Dwight Yoakam to Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba. We’re thrilled to give you an advance listen of Walking The Floor’s newest episode, featuring none other than Mighty Mighty Bosstones mouthpiece Dicky Barrett. This episode was taped live in Floyd’s Barberbus before the Foo Fighters show at Fenway Park with the Mighty Mighty Bosstones earlier this year, and you can hear the whole thing below.
