Sometimes in life you need that push or perhaps a kick in the ass to get things moving.
Summer of 2020 I thought maybe I should start doing a live stream and the plan was to go live in October 2020.
That was the plan but it took a back seat as I got comfortable riding shot gun with Mikey at his awesome show “The Lebrain Train”.
In other words I could show up five minutes before show time and not worry about a thing. I could spout off and then split.
We had booked Greg to come on the Lebrain Train but than Mikey’s world went upside down and he wasn’t that sure if he could do the chat with Fraze!
When one door closes (kinda) another one opens….
So I figured I didn’t want to cancel having Fraze on as he was one of the first guys I reached out too last year and agreed to come on Mikey’s show as myself and Mikey had never interviewed an actual ‘Musician’ before.
So with that in mind I said to Mikey. How about I fire up this stream thing I had been talking about for over a year and reach out to Fraze and if he is game (which he was right away) to come on and Mikey could ride shotgun.
Mikey was onboard and from there I set up my own on StreamYard account with help from Mikey. As well the Marsman who helped convert the theme song for the show to work on Stream Yard, and of course Tbone himself who did and will continue to do the artwork or upcoming shows. (When time frees up for him. He will be on)
It’s truly a team effort.
So last night we went live without a net and survived.
Fraze as always was awesome. Told a ton of great stories about hanging out with guys like Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) and Ronnie James Dio plus we talked about some Brighton Rock along with also finding out some info on the status of the current Storm Force album.
Fraze jokingly said that one of the working titles was called “ClusterFuck” which myself and Mikey jumped on and said to keep it as title!
Better yet as a thank you to Fraze I secretly reached out to two of his pals Andy Curran and Sean Kelly and they both came on and myself and Mikey just let them roll with all the great conversation between them.
Hockey stories, road stories, guitar tones, amps, recording you name it those guys dealt it on Scotch On The Rocks.
I was blown away that it all worked out.
Coming up on the show. All show times are at 7pm
Thursday Oct 7th- My pal David McCulloch joins me as he was the first guy here in Tbay that I bought records with.
Thursday Oct 14th- Kev from Buried On Mars hops on and we will be dsicussing “Sloans Navy Blues” record. Rewinding back to 1998!
Wednesday Oct 20th- Brent Jensen with a topic to be determined.
Thursday Oct 28th- One of the biggest Tragically Hip and Pearl Jam fanboy’s that I know of Probie will join me as we will talk about these bands and more and trust me folks Probie has a ton of stories as the main focus will be on The Hips “Road Apples” album. Basically a deep dive back to ’91!
