BS with Bob Rupp

BS with Bob Rupp

April 18, 2019

Today on the show I have a cool hang with the extraordinary Bob Rupp. Bob signed me to my Sabian cymbal deal years ago and we’ve been friends ever since. We chat about all kinds of stuff, well, okay mostly drums and cymbals. We have some drum nerd moments in this episode and it’s fantastic. Bob has been through more than most people can fathom, both good and bad, yet he is one of the most positive dudes I know. From opening a drum shop that became one of the biggest in the country, to traveling the world, to playing drums all over America and having many Rock star drummer friends, Bob lives his life his way and to the fullest. He’s full of great stories and is eager to share them as well as some drum hits; when we recorded the show, he was sitting behind his drums. And neither one of us would have it any other way. Bob is truly, the very definition of a Good Dude.

BS with Dilana

BS with Dilana

April 4, 2019

This week I have a conversation with the one and only Dilana. I had my fan boy moment when I met her at NAMM this past January and she was kind enough to grant me some time to be on the show. Dilana is an amazing singer and I have been a fan of hers for years, hence my fan boy moment. She gained National attention in America when she was on a reality television show called Rockstar Supernova, which is where I first saw her and have been a fan since. She is originally from South Africa and she has a cool story about how she got to America and what she’s been up to since the TV show. We discuss some of her records as well as some of the amazing musicians she has worked with. She currently lives in Holland and she catches me up on her musical life and how she found herself in Holland (again) after living in Los Angeles for 12 years. This was a great conversation and I can’t her thank her enough for making time for me. You can find Dilana here…

BS with Tom Knight

BS with Tom Knight

March 28, 2019

The voice you hear every week at the beginning of the show belongs to none other than Tom Knight. This week, I had a chance to have a conversation (one of thousands) with Tom and we have a cool, laid back chat. Tom and I have been friends for many years and he was one of my drum instructors at AIM that helped me become a better player and through that, we forged a friendship.

Tom has had many successes throughout his career and we talk about many of them, including how he got started on drums, his early playing influences and how they changed, all the way up to him touring with TLC in the late 90s. Tom is currently a Voice Over (VO) Artist and has even won an Emmy for his work. He’s an awesome dude and this hang was long overdue and I know this episode will become a fast favorite!

BS with Steve Owens

BS with Steve Owens

March 21, 2019

This week on the show I have my very first Skype hang! Technology… I might figure it out one day. Today, I hang with my buddy, Steve Owens who is the host of Fascination Street Podcast. Steve lives in San Antonio and has had much success with his podcast as he gets great people to interview for his show. He has had several actors, comedians, musicians and even a couple of lawyers! We talk about his love podcasts, how he got his start, the direction of the show and where he gets his guests from. We also go all over the map with Squirrel Nut Moments but we had some fun and this was a great conversation. You can find Steve at the links below.

BS with Jimmy Lee King

BS with Jimmy Lee King

March 7, 2019

This week, I get to reveal some stuff I’ve been covered up with during my conversation with Jimmy Lee King. Jimmy is one of the founding members and the bass player for the band Naked Karate Girls. I was fortunate enough to be hired to be a substitute drummer for the band and what a blast! Jimmy and I talk about the idea for the band, it’s origins and the concept of franchising themselves (which is genius in my opinion). NKG is a band based out of Cincinnati, OH and they are the ultimate party band. They have been together for almost 11 years and Jimmy talks bout some wacky things that have happened including a bedroom shredder and a leaf blower incident that lead to a court case.

This episode was a lot of fun and it’s nice to finally be able to talk about some of the music stuff I’ve been keeping quiet. Jimmy and NKG have done some cool things so you’re going to want to follow them…

This week on the show, I hang with a fine guitarist/pedal steel guitarist named Lorn C. Fountain. Like me, Lorn was born in Syracuse, NY, which is awesome. We chat about many things, mostly music and his story including his living in Austin from 1986-2001. He played in a few bands including Street Legal, Slingblade, The Buzzards and The Moment. He also worked as a stage hand at Stubbs BBQ for SXSW in 1997 and 1998. Lorn moved to Louisville in 2001 and has played with several great players around town. Make sure you hang until the end because Lorn turns the tables on me…

On this episode of the show, I have a cool conversation with my buddy, Bo Swanger. Bo lives in Seattle, Washington but he goes to NAMM every year and this year, we were in California together so we sat down to chat. Bo has been playing drums for a long time and he might be a bigger gear head than me; he definitely has a thing for snare drums. We talk about his music history, professional career, being a new dad and how he cured a concussion from falling off stage.

BS with Andrew Loggins

BS with Andrew Loggins

February 7, 2019

Today on the show I get to hang with my buddy Andrew Loggins. Andrew was very instrumental in my early teaching career. Him and his wife, Melissa, own Music Authority in Cumming, GA. We sat down in front of Starbucks in the Hilton hotel during the Anaheim NAMM Convention a couple weeks ago. We talk about a few things but mostly his outlook on teaching and what it takes to have a successful music lesson program and I learned a lot more about him. Andrew is an awesome dude and it was awesome to hang with him and Melissa.

You can find Andrew at musicauthorityinc.com. Also on facebook and Instagram using @musicauthority.
