BS with Aalics Bronson

December 6, 2018

This week on the show I hang with my buddy Aalics Bronson. Aalics is a monster bass player and we talk about all kinds of behind the scenes music business-y type stuff. We all also discuss his weird circle hand movements while he plays, his bouncing back and forth between Louisville and NYC, as well as his early start to his bass playing. Aalics is super busy with playing bass for Jean Marx Express, touring off and on in Europe, teching for a couple of known artists, behind the scenes production and part time managing a band! He has his hands in a lot of fires and loves all of it. He’s a cool dude, so busy in fact, Sebastian made his way into our conversation this week.

You can find Aalics below…

BS with Frank Green

November 29, 2018

Today on the show, I hang out with my buddy, Frank Green. Frank and I don’t know each other very well, but we had a lot of stuff to talk about. So much in fact, we never got to Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Are You Listening To. But that’s okay because Frank will be back in a few weeks. We do talk about gigging, Frank growing up playing bass, our dear friend Kevin McCreery, how he landed into a band that got a record deal within a month of him joining, the amazing amount of talent in the Louisville music scene and dealing with death and depression. This is one of those rare episodes where we get a little deep so you don’t want to miss this one. We even touch on concept records!

BS with Mitch Kirkpatrick

November 15, 2018

This week I sit down with a former student who is now a good friend, Mitch Kirkpatrick. I met Mitch several years ago when he was teenage drummer looking to become better at his craft. He was like a power plant of energy behind the drums but had no focus. I pointed him in the right direction and he worked hard and it paid off. We talk about what he’s been up to, living in Los Angeles and Nashville and where is life is now. And if course, 2 drummers together create tons of squirrel moments!

Social Media Issues – Mitch has stayed away but still has some observations.

Stories From The Stage – Some “song requesters” take thing a little too far.

What Are You Listening To – Mitch is really into the new Eminem album.

BS with David Payne

November 1, 2018

Jamie Bruce Harris. December 13, 1972 - October 25, 2018. Rest easy, my friend.

Today on the show, I have a very long, detailed and sarcastic conversation with David Payne. David owns Louisville Music Studios and we talk about how he started it and why. But even before we get to that, we talk about David’s upbringing because he has a cool story. We get into how he ended up in Louisville, his musical background and take some serious jabs at each other. We have a lot of fun and there’s tons of immature jokes so consider yourself warned!

Because I wanted to get David’s story out there, there are no Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Are You Listening To this week. This is just an in-depth conversation with David Payne about who he is and what makes him tick. I think you guys will dig this episode, even with all the crap David and I fling at each other.

BS With Todd Blankenship

October 25, 2018

On today’s episode, I hang with my buddy, Todd Blankenship. We talk about a few different things, like how we met seeing as I don't really remember, but mostly his passion and the work he does for the film industry. Todd is from Louisville but moved to LA to become a full-time writer and talks about where he'll be moving to next because LA traffic sucks. I learn all kinds of cool things like what a gaffer really is, a grip and a key grip – those odd titles that are in the credits of every movie.

There’s no segments to this show as I just wanted to have a conversation with Todd and get to know him better. So, no Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Am I Listening to but I drop a couple nuggets of that throughout the show.  This was a fun one and I hope you guys dig it as much as I do. Todd is an awesome dude and it was great to hang and chat with him.

FINALLY!! THE BAR STAR PODCAST HAS A WEBSITE!! The address is below!!

Today on the show, I give my opinion about the past because of a reconnection I had a couple weeks ago with a former band member.

I hope you guys dig my Dime Store Philosophy this week.

Social Media Issues – Know it all’s that don’t know anything.

Stories From The Stage – Country Club Taped Napkins

BS Episode 6

October 4, 2018

Welcome to another episode! This week I have a chat with me about coffee, documentaries, what I think is wrong with people and my sudden stuttering issue. I have a couple opinions about the current state of creativity and why I think it’s lacking. All of course with no real factual evidence other than my own misguided opinions.

Social Media Issues – It’s just sad.

Stories From The Stage – 6 degrees… Lit’trally.

What Am I Listening To – The Jasta Show and Dee Snider’s I Wanna Talk

BS with Jason Gosine

September 13, 2018

This week on the show, I hang with buddy Jason Gosine from Charleston, SC. We went to music school together and he has had an interesting life trip so far. He’s seen a lot, done a lot, served our country and works in a very cool guitar shop in Charleston which is where we recorded this episode. Jason and I are just having a conversation so there’s no Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Are You Listening To this week. We had a great chat and Jason talked about a movie called Artifact that he highly recommends. Since recording this episode, I watched it and I highly recommend it as well. If you’re into music – since you listen to this show it’s a safe assumption – you need to check out Artifact.

Rusty’s Cool Guitars is an amazing shop that sells all custom guitars and the profits go to Guitars For Vets, Animal Rescue and a few other charities. It’s a very cool shop that does great things so here’s the info for Rusty’s.

BS with Charles Funk

September 6, 2018

I’m excited about this week’s episode because I had a chance while on vacation to hang out with my buddy Charles Funk and we had a blast! Charles and I were in a band together called S-Tribe that ended almost 17 years ago and we haven’t seen each other in 15 years. It was great to catch up but it was even better to make a podcast out of it! Charles is one monster guitar player and he also a Cardiovascular Sonographer; yes, I had to spell check that. He is an awesome dude who lives life on his terms and I am proud to have shared many stages with him, recorded with him and most of all to call him a friend.

Social Media Issues – People have complained food and bikinis right out of the news feed.

Stories From The Stage – Charles blanks and I recall floor tom fireballs.

What Are You Listening To? Charles is into Dropkick Murphys, Luthi, old vinyl, good production values and tight rhythm sections.

BS with Tony Clark

August 30, 2018

Hey Friends! Today on the show I hang with the multi-talented, quick witted Tony Clark. Tony is currently the guitarist for the band Wax Factory but he is also a computer IT nerd, I mean person. We talk about Tony growing up with music, his dad being a bass player and the Catholic church/school. Tony’s first band was a wedding band but he wanted to be cool instead of making money… Weirdo. Tony has been playing guitar for more than 40 years and had a band with his brother on bass for 16 years. He's seen a lot and done a lot but most importantly, Tony is a great story teller.

Social Media Issues – Tony has a lot to say about social media because he also works in IT. And we have a deep discussion about facebook groups and stupidity.

Stories From The Stage – Drinking on stage, don’t quit your day job, Juke Box Hero & tape face revenge.

What Are You Listening To? Tony has been listening to Shawn Mendes, early Blackberry Smoke, Will Hoge as well as some guitar oriented roots rock.
