interview With Rik Emmett
"Welcome back. It's Eddie trunk on this week's podcast. Thank you so much for listening We start off as mentioned with Rik Emmett of triumph coming up second and just a bit. It'll be Rachel Bolan of skid row a very, very deluxe expanded double dip addition to great interviews for you this week I. Hope you enjoy him. We start with RIK Emmett right now. How are you rick? I'm Great Eddie how are you? Good how you in Canada how are you home? Yeah, yeah I live in Burlington, which is sort of a western city suburb, of Toronto and It's been great here. Actually you know it's I haven't minded sort of being isolated and. You know it hasn't had too much effect at actually allow me to become a little bit more creative so I've been enjoying myself. Well that's the thing you know all this pandemic time all the artists I've been talking to all seem to have a different take. Some are really chomping at the bit to go out there and do things and others are enjoying the reconnect with family and not used to being home. This long others are taking the time to do really creative things. Right record do streaming videos what what's been the focus for you. In this time I mean you you are semi retired from touring anyway weren't you? Yeah I had sort of stepped back from touring at the beginning of twenty nineteen. So I was getting used to it and I had told my agent. Well, you know I'll go out and try if you want to necessarily have to fly two gigs. But if you put some stuff together that can drive to maybe I'll try some of that and then along came covert thing and those got bumped and canceled and so but I was already getting used to being off the road. anyways. So I don't really miss the road and I mean. I do Miss Playing And and having that I interaction with the crowd and that energy you know but I don't miss you know airplanes and hotels and taxi cabs and all the rest of it. You know a And the thing. That's weird. Eddie like it was almost like a retirement was a great career move for me because. Round Hill records was putting out the triumph stuff said, he would you like us to put a all your back catalog and I went well sure that it'd be great. It's nice to have somebody believing me. So all of the albums that I made after I left triumphed they've just digitally released him and then I was sitting around going I. Think you know I still want record and stuff when I was writing tunes in When I in nineteen, sixty, two, I don the Bob Dylan record, it was just called Bob Dylan and it was just a cousteau Qatar voice voices. You know all my years I've never really done a whole album like that. So I'm going to do a project like that. So I put that out on my website and then I I was. Writing a book of poetry and it looks like a publisher wants to make a deal so that I can do book of poetry and a memoir. So it's like one thing led to another thing about to nosing before I. Knew It. I had like a completely full calendar, and now of course you know I'm doing all of this promos on calling you. What is what is strung out troubadours I saw link for that. What is after the newest thing you're doing? Now Strung out troubadours was a thing. There was a guy named Dave Dunlop who played in my band and he actually went try and fly the reunion Gig in. Sweden in an Oklahoma Day was actually in the in the triumph hand as well playing rhythm. Guitar and Stuff. So Dave and I had a little duo thing like a lot of times my touring and got to the point where I was doing a lot of solo stuff I wanted something else and so I use the piano player for a while and then I kinda got the edge to have a little bit more of a rock and roll approach. So two guitars made it a little bit more kind of versatile and so Dave is the guy and we did it for you and then I said, Hey, you know what? We should do an album together and put it out. We can sell it at emerge table, and so that was the birth of the troubadours and we did three albums. and. Yeah Round Hill bought my rights out to those days still has his side of it. He he didn't sell them. So he stands to make some more mechanical royalty. Whatever there is to be made these days, right Yeah. So I wanNA talk to you. I. WanNa ask you some triumph stuff of course but before. But before that, let's let's let me cover the reason you're calling which you mentioned the release of your albums after triumph ended for you and I think rick that people would probably be surprised to learn how many records there are, and there were a lot of people that sort of. Categorized what you did after triumph as being a jazz guitar, but that's not all you did. You really ventured into a lot of different styles. So for people that especially here in America that maybe didn't follow all that closely some of the stuff you did after triumph tell everybody what you did musically, and how many records there are in the different journeys those records took you on. Okay well, you know settle in folks make yourself a cup of coffee. This is a long story. There there was thirteen that round hill made a deal for and they ran the gamut and when I first got of triumph. So a little bit of sort of ancient history here left eighty eight. I actually made three albums for an indie either had a distribution through universal and in Canada. And those sort of started an evolution or You know I don't know a a mutation change from being sort of Iraqi. Guy To kinda be in a singer Songwriter Guy and that took me from eighty nine through to about ninety five six. And then I sort of had enough. I. I was I mean the industry had changed You know the whole thing of being sort of in an arena rock band. It's kind of converted to an MTV banned through the eighties that was dying off and there was the rise of Nirvana and soundgarden and so radio had gone in a different direction and I try and thing just seemed like it was over for me you know so I left made those three records in there and I got to the point where I went. Okay. This doesn't really seem to be working for me either and it's not really why I left triumph. In the first place I just want to indulge myself creatively artistically and I don't care if I make money or not This is not a question of chasing career. This is a question of sort of. Chasing what art in music and the music is is pulling me towards calling me. You know. So I, one was a classical guitar instrumental record next one in very short succession was a blues rock and kind of a thing because really that was like where I cut my teeth when I was first learning electric guitar was the whole Eric Clapton Jimmy Page Jeff Beck thing these guys out of the yardbirds then back into the Chicago Blues and down the Delta all of the you know the the same path that those guys went soon as you discover them, you go back down the path that they did too. So you know And then the next record was sort of top jazz because that was the next thing that happened in my life I went to college for one semester in Jazz Music Program but at the time, I was heavily deeply into everything from west, Montgomery to Charlie bird to Joe Pass and so Yeah you know swinging and that comes on playing blues and so those were the first three records I made real quick

When Robertson released a new album I went to see him as West L. A. Studio and we were surrounded by a dozen guitars hanging on the walls. I WANNA play bid of a song. Beautiful Madness

They were primal like the first generation coming from the primal ooze of of that of hard rock, and it was so it was very slow tempo. Tempo. It didn't seem that slow then. But now it does.
