Local Cleveland rockers The Missing (minus Chad) visited the on-air studios of The Rock on 88.7 FM WJCU last Friday night to discuss their great love of the early ’00s rock band Trapt and about their upcoming shows. Many conversations with The Hobbit Man took place as well (off the air unfortunately, due to the foul Hobbit language of the Hobbity fellow..)

Check out the ridiculousness below – everyone in the band now has new nicknames. Chris is now “Chris from Trapt”, Elliot aka “Howlin’ Jack” will henceforth be known as “Habit Man”, and Rick is…well Rick is just Rick.

Chad was The Missing one.
