We spoke to BSR's Jimmy Degrasso last month about 'Heavy Fire'. "This is our most diverse album yet," said Jimmy, adding that "there's a little bit of Motown, you're gonna have some punk rock and some Metal."

Jimmy also talks about his lengthy colourful career which has included stints with Y&T, David Lee Roth and Megadeth, amongst many others. Here's the full conversation.
