P.O.D. February 19-20, 2022

P.O.D. February 19-20, 2022

Since the LA Lloyd Rock 30 began July 4, 2000, P.O.D. was one of the first bands to help launch the show.  Move forward to 2022 when P.O.D. vocalist Sonny Sandoval and guitarist Marcos Curiel are always happy to sit down and chat with LA Lloyd with engaging conversation for their fans and his listeners.  But for their 6th appearance, this one was very unique as it was recorded in the middle of the sea on the Shiprocked cruise.  While most bands performed on the cruise, P.O.D. was selected as the “beach band” again to give the fans a break from the ship and party beachside in Mexico.  LA Lloyd sets it up in this video.

Many things will be covered in the interview on this LA Lloyd Rock 30 including the many milestones reached by P.O.D. including the 20th anniversary of their platinum album Satellite.  Also, the band talks about revisiting with legendary producer Howard Benson.  As Sonny and Marcos reveal, Howard takes them in the studio to show them all of the many plaques he’s received from other gold and platinum artists.  But the one he’s most proud of in the middle of the bunch is his first gold record he received as producer of P.O.D.’s album The Fundamental Elements of Southtown.

Significance of 9/11

P.O.D. released their platinum album Satellite on the infamous date 9/11/2001.  It is still their biggest release to date with huge hits like Alive, Boom and the classic Youth of the Nation; a song that talked about a school shooting that happened in real time as they were recording their album only blocks away.  That day inspired this song and it was monumental seeing it live over 20 years later on the beach during Shiprocked’s day on the beach.
