Over the past year, Dunn has been traveling to meet with some of the biggest names in rock and metal music. Some of them will be very familiar, like the metal heroes he’s had the privilege to interview before, people like Rob Halford of Judas Priest, Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, Geddy Lee of Rush and Slash. He also had the chance to sit down for the first time with such iconic artists as Ann Wilson of Heart and Daryl Hall.
