Author & Special Guests

Big numbers call for big celebrations, and with Dig Me Out hitting episode #200, we thought it was time to tackle a big record. Nevermind? Ten? Badmotorfinger? Siamese Dream? To predicable! Like Guns n’ Roses, we decided to go the biggest of the big and tackle the ambitious double album of the decade Billy Corgan wasn’t a part of, the one-two punch of 1991’s Use Your Illusion 1 & 2. To help us tackle this behemoth, Chip Midnight stops by to help us breakdown these 30(!) songs.
