Braid. Hey Mercedes. Two of Trav's favorite bands. The cool thing is you can talk to one Bob Nanna and cover both. First we have a few records to talk about. Then Stephen tells one of those stories that reminds you that it could be embarrassing to go "commando".
Bob Nanna tells us about the space between the end of Braid and the beginning of Hey Mercedes and how it went down in Hawaii. Hear about how Hey Mercedes met their tour manager Chris on the Vagrant tour. Bob Nanna was nice enough to open up about a cancer scare, yet how he somehow found the peace to not let it be a scare...plus he got a hat out of it so that's cool. Cancer sucks. We are all getting older every day and there comes a time where we have to make smarter decisions about our health. Drink more water, folks. He reminds us that when you go see a band they didn't just come from their tour bus fully rested...sometimes they didn't even sleep the night before. Remember that.
Bob is involved in something pretty special called Downwrite, where you can hire a songwriter to write a customized song just for you. It's a really neat, intimate approach and I recommend the site. Just scroll around and see who's involved. Bob is covering his top 100 songs (yeah...) all the way up to his favorite song "Chesterfield King" by Jawbreaker. Thanks for listening. We love you. Take care. Bye-bye.
