In the latest episode of Premier Guitar’s Hooked series, musician Frank Iero made an appearance.
Iero, who is best known as the rhythm guitarist and backup vocalist of My Chemical Romance, has also had a variety of solo music projects over the years. The most recent iteration is Frank Iero and the Future Violents (aka Violence), who released their full-length album Barriers in 2019 and their latest EP Heaven Is A Place, This Is A Place earlier this month.
Iero opened up his Hooked video by playing Black Flag’s “Rise Above,” and then went on to break down how Black Flag, that song, and guitarist Greg Ginn’s riffs in particular influenced him as a musician.
