On this melodic episode of the Popzara Podcast we welcome back the King of Montage music and master of the unapologetically optimistic, Stan Bush! While best known for mega cult-hits The Touch and Dare, Stan’s decades-long career spans film (Transformers, Kickboxer), TV (Family Guy/American Dad), and, increasingly, games (Guitar Hero, Shadow Warrior). But he’s not done yet; Stan’s still living the dream with the release of his 13th album, Change the World, a healthy mix of reworked classics and all-new tracks that feel impossibly bright in a world that often feels terminally dark.
Our very own superfan Nathan Evans and Stan talk everything from the differences between Marvel and DC movies, Transformers fandom (mercifully kept to a minimum), how the internet leveled the playing field for new and veteran artists, reviving John Farnham classics (Thunder in Your Heart), the untimely death of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, competing with U2’s Bono, and staying positive when all seems lost and it’s down to the wire. What, you think we’d have Stan Bush on and not make a Transformers pun? Till all are one!
