Happy Easter, you!
Sam West, drummer of Stavesacre joins the story with his story. This guy is a drumming hero of mine. Scaterd Few "Sin Disease" and "JawboneOfAnAss". Are you kidding me? Sam tells us about his family and how he is surrounded by musicians. Sam tells us about Stavesacres' upcoming album and producing it with the great Paul Figueroa. He covers his timeline, auditioning for the band AMEN, kid stories, how he came into Scaterd Few and how grumpy Omar was at the audition. Sam tells us about subbing for the Supertones, Plankeye, Audio Adrenaline, legal issues with recording Jawbone, first Saviour Machine show which led from their drummer not showing up. Seriously?
We get Sam's introduction to the film industry through our hero Matt Kitchens which led to his day job on The Real. Then for some reason I tell a story about a Violent Femmes show...not sure why I felt compelled to tell that story. I get to tell Sam that I used his "Speakeasy" drumset on my band's new ep. It'll be out VERY soon...like next week. There's a link below to a Johnny Cash cover off our upcoming EP "Paroles De Fue".
Plus the podcast debut of Nick Dinitto. You're gonna dir from the cuteness.
