Tomorrow’s Hits Today! Introducing Edsel Dope, founding member, lead singer, and songwriter of Industrial/Rock Band DOPE! Edsel walks PANDA through the beginnings of the band in 1997 in New York City and his long-time friendship/relationship with PANDA’s very own Bob Chiappardi!

Danny & Edsel dive into the surprising reach and influence of the 2001 DOPE track “Die MF Die”.

Ilan & Edsel talk about their long and respected career as a live band and how DOPE was the last band to play at The Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio before the horrific murder of Dimebag Darrell. AND how DOPE was the FIRST band to play at The Alrosa Villa after Dimebag’s murder after an emotional call from Rick Cautela, the owner of the Alrosa Villa, who was on the verge of losing the business when no band would play the venue! Edsel & DOPE played a sold out show and opened the gates for other bands to resume playing there! THANK YOU Edsel!

PANDA also gets the inside scoop on DOPE’s cover of the 80s classic “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)” by Dead Or Alive!
