"About a baby shower on Facebook. And my jaw dropped and my stomach fell and I was just absolutely sick. She was having a baby shower, and I didn't even know she was pregnant. That's how out of touch I was, right? That's how shitty of a friend that I was. So I called her. Crying. Like, I had no idea. I had no idea you were even pregnant. And she was incredibly short with me, kind, not nasty, not angry, just very polite and Curt. And so when I asked her, you know, why haven't you called me? Why didn't you tell me? Why didn't you reach out to me, she said that she and her husband the jazz club owner had decided that they did not want to be a part of my life anymore because they detested my new husband. They drew this conclusion based on my husband's behavior in their jazz club on our wedding day. Apparently he had done something that they witnessed that they were infuriated by. And so they made the decision then and they're basically to not be a part of my life going forward. Unbeknownst to me. So when I got caught up in my own struggles in that first year, I had no idea that anything had ever happened, but she laid it all on me right then. And I remember saying to her, so you're breaking up with me? You're breaking up with me because you don't like my husband? I'm still me over here. I'm your friend. You don't even fucking know him. I'm not surprised he did something asshole ish, but that's on him. That's not on me. You know, I had been friends with her for over a decade at that point. Seriously, okay, and in the meantime, I filled her in, because by then, I had told my parents knew what was going on in my life and I was becoming more, I guess open or transparent with what I was going through. So I just told her, I'm like, look, you're right. He's struggling with this stuff. So, you know, this is where we're at and whatever. And there was no pity, not that I was looking for it. But there was absolutely no understanding or concern for me. It was just a done deal. They decided a long time ago. So after that, I ended up eventually on the phone with the two other friends. One of them had lost her mother, I mentioned previously, rightfully so, she's pissed. She's disappointed. She's fucking hurt. I mean, this was my middle school friend. I knew her mom. I was not there for her. When I tried to explain, why? Why I couldn't be there for her. It didn't seem to matter. It definitely fell short. I don't think short of my own mother's funeral being on the same day. There could have been anything I could have said that would have made it better or helped her to understand from my point of view why I couldn't be there for her. I was a shell of a woman. In every way, I was malnourished. I was bruised from my own. I'd bump in a wall. I looked like hell. I was in a bad place physically and emotionally. She had no idea, because she also hadn't checked on me for the past year. But that didn't matter in her mind because my mistake or my failure was greater than hers in her mind. Now my friendship with friend number one from preschool is a casualty. As I see it, she was willing to maintain our friendship. She really didn't have anything against me. She was out of state building a new life with her husband, having kids of her own, busy, fulfilled, ambitious, nothing that happened in that year, really affected her personally that much. But what I found was that as I continued to try to talk to her after, I divulged all of my personal marital information and everything with her. I felt as though every time we would catch up over the phone, and I even said to her eventually, look, I feel like we have these conversations. And I tell you, I give you all these dirty details, if you will, up to, you know, the fucking horrors I'm going through over here. And I know good and well, you're telling friend number two and friend number three, everything I tell you, and that just doesn't seem right. Like I don't know, I'm detached from them. I don't know what's going on in their lives. And I don't want to know through hearsay or through a third party, you know? So it's like, it just felt wrong. I'm like, I felt like she was like the spy of the group that could just tell them everything. And they didn't, you know, they could just continue to judge me in my bad choices, you know? So that was it. I stopped calling her. And that's it. That's the end of my friendship with my three hometown friends that I had known, you know, a huge portion of my life. Now, when I think about what I learned from it, clearly, as I've talked about before, with abuse, alcohol addiction, addictions of any sort, it's very common to keep things a secret. Especially for whatever reason, addiction, addiction has a way of isolating us and convincing us that it's private when it's fucking not. It impacts everyone in your life. I had no friendship. I had no guidance. I had no loving ear on the end of a phone call. I had no one telling me to get out to save my daughter. I had nothing. I was alone because I chose to go through that situation. That first year alone. That's on me. So the first thing I learned is to not do that. Don't keep secrets from your loved ones. Think about the reason you're keeping the secret. Shame, disappointment. Anger, yeah, it doesn't come from a good place. Secrets are damaging secrets suck. They hurt people, right? So that's the first thing I learned. Honestly, I did a shitty job of phone calls and checking in and making plans with them. I wasn't in a place to be able to do that that year. I couldn't go have a fun girls weekend. I had no money. I had no time to myself. I had no energy. It wasn't in the cards. But they didn't know that, right? So the responsibility I take for the friendship fall out the friendship breakup was just the fact.

Thank you guys for lending me your ears I've been listening to this podcast for quite a while now, and it's a little surreal experience to be on this end of it.

I WANNA start off on a little bit of a somber notes because as I shared fire nation during the introduction, we're talking about barshop way to millions but in many of us have dealt with some one in our lives that we love who dealt with some form of this but your Dad Ravi had stage four cancer. So talk to us about that and how that situation. Caused you to throw it all away. Awesome questions. So whole life was going to be a lawyer and that was that was the goal was law school was the number one priority, and in order to be a lawyer, you have to take what's known as a law school admission test and you had the really score highly on and if you WANNA go great law school which I did. And so I took a year off after graduating from college and I was about to start studying for this also emission tests in about three days. After I graduated I, got a call from my dad who lives in Atlanta Georgia. I was in Florida at the time and he told me news he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and like John Says, you know everyone here has experienced cancer somewhere the other, but it's like when it's yourself or someone as Close Your Dad, it's a whole different experience and kind of threw me. For a loop and so I ended up packing all my stuff up moving to Atlanta. Georgia, and for the next year I would wake up at four am workout until five. Then from five to eight, I'll be studying for this law school admission test than about eight to five I'll be doing Chemo and radiation with my dad every single day. Monday. Through Friday and then when I got home at about six, o'clock, I'd be studying until eleven midnight every night back again on a law school admission test. So it was quite a surreal experience. I'm really really blessed to say my dad's been about two years in remission. So just actually visited him in Savannah Georgia, two days ago I was just seeing him but what it really did open up for me was. How fragile life was I was kind of going down around that I think somebody else wanted me to go down and I read a really awesome book called the subtle not giving of an economy I was just like, okay I'm doing this for all the wrong reasons and I decided you know what I took the law school admission test spent eighteen years preparing for it. I actually scored in the top ten percent of test takers in the United States I got into my dream schools, top schools in the nation. and. Then I said you know what? I'M GONNA go work at a talion restaurant down the road and try to figure out this entrepreneurship
"jazz club" Discussed on The Tour Bus Podcast
"But yeah I mean honestly the money. I'm not sure of the market now but it used to be fantastic. I mean Gosh you could be making at the time. Well I mean think think. Think about a twenty two year old kid. You know in the early two thousand. Yeah you're making a thousand thousand six. Yeah I mean you're you're making a thousand something like that. Yeah after agency our agency gets cut. And there's some travel expenses but if you do one hundred of those a year man. You're looking real good you know and of course. I was so I was a typical young silly kid and I didn't really know how to save money but Like like most of us but But all that to say that's circuit and I'm assuming it's somewhat the same but if you really work on it and you have a really good promo video and you sell yourself to agency. It's a good means to make a living for sure. Well man that's also how long. How long did you do that for? Gosh that was probably off and on for if I had to guess maybe eight years or so to be honest. Hit The we at the pinnacle of it and we you know we want some awards the most you know best coffeehouse quote Unquote Act this year and whatever year it was and so that meaning we. We just got the most bookings and we're the most Sought after act. I guess to go to your your school and So yeah it was. It was a great time and it was it. Was you know it's easy? I mean looking back on it. A young twenty something. I wish I had my head on straight a little more easy to get trump and and just do stupid stuff as most kids do but essentially Right out of high school if you really look at the timeline of it right out of high school. I'm signing a deal and a year or two later. I'm on the road. I mean it's like hello real world. You know there's no more English class now. It's like hitting the pavement and see and stuff and the on the road majority say notice stuff. Yeah exactly how she did that for so you did that for a good while. It sounds like through your twenties for the most part. Where did what? What opportunity did you get from that? Or how did you were? You able to leverage anything in that in the circuit to kind of go from there to your next step. Yeah I think honestly what I take away from my time. College touring is probably just experience. I mean truthfully the depending on the night each show depends on the quality of the student activity board at the school. That booked you meaning. You could go one night and have a contact or a board who so excited about you come. And they've promoted it and they put you in a theater and there's three hundred people there four hundred people there and then you could go the very next night an hour up the road and it's the the person in charge is just doing it to get some credit and they don't care about the actual event itself there's no promotion and there might be three people no joke one time. They put me in a computer lab and there was one dude in there and when he saw US setting up he turned around looked at us and he put his headphones on you. So it's like all that to say I mean and this is when the Youtube Star Church Church youth camps that started like that exactly and and this is when the youtube thing was really starting to take off so people were recording us our shows and honestly dude We had we would travel to wherever and people were singing our songs back to us and even though they weren't released they were just seeing them live versions on Youtube. I was like how cool is that. You know so it was a good. It was a good way to get exposure and to gain fame and to make really great money But at the same time it's really just every single day was a different situation and it wasn't pretty one By no means was glamorous. It was cutting teeth pay in your dues and learning how to work an audience. Even if there's three people or three hundred or four hundred and you just learn to work an audience and tell funny jokes and be silly and not take yourself too serious. Is there a place that If you find yourself taking it too seriously as place you have to go to kind of mentally trick yourself into like. Hey man three people give it. Give it the three thousand. Yeah absolutely mean I think that circuit to be honest that circuit unfortunately gone are the days of record labels paying attention and go. Hey man this this guys out there tour and like crazy but you know all you have to do like is tour that circuit with the understanding that you're not necessarily going to get a deal out of it but just take it for what it is. It's it's a great circuit to make great money build some fans get some emails on your mailing list and just cut your teeth. You know. But when I was young I was thinking this was going to launch me into a big record deal you know and so I was a little disappointed in that because quite honestly record labels. Don't pay attention to your amount of tour dates from colleges. They just don't because it's a completely separate world but may have but once. I stopped taking myself so serious and just doing it for what it was a man it was it was a blast and even if it was one of those shows where there's three people you know at the end of the day. I'm getting paid really well to travel and play music for an hour an hour show. That's it so I was like man. How could I complain about this? So it's all about perspective you know and I learned that at a young age as well sure. Now that's GONNA perspective being able to zoom out and say you know Kinda. This is the big picture and this is where this event fits in. So let me give it everything I got right and especially for folks that have hopefully are listening to multiple of these. Podcasts are going to find out that they're going to see a pattern that you guys giving it everything you got for. The three people is usually what opens up the door down the road. Not necessarily you giving it your all for three thousand people. Because that's kind of easier expected right. I mean one thousand percent. I mean it's it's all about habits and honestly just honoring honoring the craft. Nothing worth it is handed to you. You know it's not supposed to be easier otherwise we would do it. And that's just not the case and you have to be okay with that you know there's zero entitlement and this business has a funny way of knocking. You back down to Earth once. You think you've made it Yup. I picked up a picked. Up From my father-in-law is the hard way. As the easy way which basically goes both ways right. If you put in the hard work it will ultimately becomes the easy way to have done it absolutely but if you try to put in the easy work it becomes the hard way to do exactly as the hard way the hard ways easy way a anyways and that applies here is exactly what you're saying. Hundred percent applies in the business world. As well where I do most of my work cool so you did that for a while. And where where'd you go from there? And what made you Kinda step out? Yes sure so. I was still kind of doing it for a long time. Slowly slowly tapered off. I mean I started over this time I was married. I ended up having a Kiddo three years ago so technically. I'm still on an active roster. I just don't get as offers like I used to because I kind of made it clear to my through. Neka yes I. I made it clear that agency is like. I don't really want to go do that that much anymore. If something comes up cool hit me up I'll say your name but You know in you know desires change. I didn't really want to be on the road row dog in it so much. A hundred percent began with that right. So like from there Gosh years and years of doing that but while I was home in the summer because obviously at the time. There's there's no touring there's no college during the summer. So I started making connections in Atlanta just being that I was born and raised here and there was a started making a name for myself and I would have residency gigs. I'd play Sambuc Jazz Club on Thursday nights I would play Gosh there was a cigar bar and Alfa Reta Georgia. I would play on Friday nights and it was just. It was always places to play and I was always getting GIG GIG GIG GIG and I would just start striking up relationships man relationship. I you know and then I started. Land some great gigs. And Gosh from there I joined a cover band does like corporate party stuff so they need the tour bus. The whole nine yards so base. Go on the weekends. If if there's really expensive fancy wedding you know in Texas or something. We'd go and we'd perform do cover tunes and it was like a dance thing so you dress up and you got a big huge ban. I'm sure we've all seen stuff like that at weddings yet. Insane with corporate events started doing that as well with with this band and I started getting attention from Tyler. Perry's world who is obviously a media mogul And I got I got asked to be in the cast of his stage. Play musical called laugh to keep from crying and that was I want to say that was around. Two thousand eleven to two thousand ten thousand eleven and Man. We were playing For about two and a half months on the road nonstop playing sold out theaters. All across the country is great. What did you get from the Tyler? Perry GIG both From a networking standpoint and talent wise. Like what did you? What did you grow as an artist in that season? Yeah man my takeaway. From that was to be honest. I always tell people People are so kind to come up and say man. How do you get.

What would he have accomplished around the world. If he hadn't spent twenty seven years behind bars would the course of apartheid in south africa which he fought so vehemently against been halted decades earlier and and what his epic love affair with his wife winnie have survived they met at a bus stop in soweto south africa she was twenty two and as the nation's first black female social -ocial worker her life had already taken off. He was forty married and had three children. He was fixated on a seemingly only impossible goal to end south africa's systemic policies of racism a week later. They got indian food together. He was smitten. He wrote in his biography. I cannot say for certain if there is such a thing as love at first sight but i do know that the moment moment i first glimpsed winning. I knew that i wanted to have her as my wife mandela divorced his first wife and then he and when he got married the relationship was passionate. They held hands publicly and went to jazz clubs occasionally. They fought though about the little things other couples oral about every day like when nelson tried to teach winnie how to drive they were emerging as the ultimate power our couple powerful voices against apartheid in south africa and racism around the world but their happiness and their power was short lived a few years after their wedding mandela was convicted of a treasonous plot to violently overthrow the government and sentenced to life in prison meanwhile when he faced her own struggles as she fought a racist political system she was was arrested harassed and forbidden for most social contact in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine. She began serving an eighteen month prison sentence in solitary confinement. She was tortured in her memoir.

Showtime's 'The Loudest Voice' Tells The True Story Of The Downfall Of Roger Ailes At Fox News
"The loudest voice. It's the new Showtime miniseries. Stories about the rise and fall of Fox News and particularly of Roger Ailes, the infamous founder of Fox News. Seth plays a character real life character named Brian Lewis. He was the head of public relations at FOX for many years. He came with Roger Ailes from CNBC when Roger was launching, Fox News. And he was most people would tell you the right hand of Roger Ailes. He was the pit bull. He guarded the company's internal business for Roche ously could be very tough with reporters obviously, but also anybody who tried to crack into the Fox News bubble. I think you'll be interested to hear Sestri bestirred drawing when he was two years old. He wrote a letter to Jim Henson studios when he was nine years old announcing that he was going to be a puppeteer and a cartoonist a kid who kind of knew what he wanted to be from the age of two and, you know, he gets into how do you do that? You have the dream when you're a kid, you move onto the Rhode Island school of design as he did. And. He was hired right away. They recognize his talent out to Hollywood worked on an animated show for a couple years before, again, when he was twenty four years old. He started family guy, which, by the way was cancelled twice was, not an immediate hit, I think people forget that. So to set the scene for you Seth and I got together at cafe. Carlyle at the famed Carlyle hotel in New York City. The cafe Carlyle is a jazz club. Seth has performed there a couple times because on top of everything else begin things that are scary. He sings in public. He's got five albums, including his latest once in a while, and he's been nominated for four Grammy award. So I got him to sit down at the piano, we got him to play a little bit sing a little bit. Do the thing that Seth MacFarlane does, but mostly to walk through fascinating life in fascinating career where the guy just does something different and surprises people all the time, a great conversation with Seth MacFarlane. We start by talking about the loudest voice, the series on Showtime. About Fox News. Thanks for doing this man for sure. So we've already gotten I think halfway through the show already we'll will start for the benefit of the viewers again. Yeah. I want to start with your character before we talk big picture, because I don't think most people know who he is. In fact, I know most people don't know, who is if you don't live in our media world Brian Lewis, who was he. And why is it important character in this big story, Brian Lewis was Roger Ailes PR chief for Fox News? And he also sort of functioned as his right hand man, and a lot of ways you know, this, this was the guy that Roger would blow off steam, too. And, and also the guy who was comfortable enough keeping keeping them in line when he may be got a little too off the rails. And, you know, according to the to Gabe chairman's book, and according to the series, he was also a guy was who was kind of on the outside of the. Emotional end of things. He was he was he was a democrat. Chocking way, working for Fox News. But more importantly, he was kind of a gun for hire. He was there because, you know, it was a good job and the ethics of it didn't really come into play. It was about, you know, being Boba fett. I guess. Liberal hire me, then he's a bounty hunter. So how did he to the extent? You got inside his head by reading the book. How did he reconcile knowing what he was doing was often wrong unethical? Yes. Doing the job. Well, I mean according to the material that I read that he, he at the end of the day he was. He could compartmentalize, he could put his family over here and his job over here, and essentially be two different people. But at a certain point. You know, he he idolized ales for a long time, and he really respected ails, as a marketer. And as as a as a promoter of whatever it was he wanted to promote. And he, I guess must have started to see him unraveling a little bit. And. It was probably a combination of genuine concern. Because there seemed to be a conscience there. And, and professional concern that, okay, I worked for this guy this reflects on me and, and he's starting to come apart at the seams.

"Can be heard Saturdays at the dispensary jazz club in Las Vegas and records is a big deal. I mean, it was particularly back in the day. And then I see you hit the road and get an idea of some of your versatility. You went out with Marilyn mccoo and Billy Davis who came from the fifth dimension. Of course, smooth soul. Turnaround, Joe cocker, which I love how do you do that? With me. You know, what because because especially in Los Angeles. And my parents I have to put them down to into this definitely is because we were brought up with all kinds of music. I play I play cello for four years in elementary school and guitar and ukulele and also singing in bells because that's what we did. I mean the arts, which of course, is a is not what it used to be now. But but the arts were so heavy and especially coming up in the Crenshaw district back when I came everybody was doing something. But do you think we missed that really in terms of the musical world? Because again, all this roundabout talent you step in a willing to take on anything. You we've got to specialized and so forth where there aren't people doing. Well, a lot of things that happened one. The clubs are went away. That was your practice that was your practice point. Because you got to watch the best we've actually everybody that went out and became superstars or whatever. The case may be the watch the best you can either. Sometimes even sit in with the best, and you learn so much you learn so much until you could become your own voice, so to speak, and like you were talking about the versatility and all the rest of that. But if you look back at all of the different concerts and everything else that used to happen back sixty seventies. It was always. A whole variety of different artists. That would be on a Bill like Tony will go out. He could go out with John. And then the same can have slammed the family song. But then they would be with Mary Clayton, and they're opening for the Rolling Stones because she had just finished doing the gimme shelter and so forth, and so on and so it just it just it was just such a delight to have all those different musical. Touches to say. Nice to be bad too. Right. You know, where you could go out. And if you make mistakes, you hit exactly exactly and you learn and then we had contest to you know, we read there were a lot of contests. We were coming up with the club time and the contest you would win. Again, you would win you would truly went on a whole weekend. If you want some of the different talent contests. Yeah. It was a big thing. They made it may. You mean, we were dressed and all that made a big thing. But in doing the background work. I was able to get with that. And then one thing led to another, and again, helping with influence, and Richie, and Betty and all and they also really kind of help opened up a lot of doors as well. And from that point on actually, even before Maryland, Billy? I was with letter in Buhl, and at the time Letta was the one who sang the song that was talked about going going home. On the roots album Quincy Jones. Wow. So letter at the time was being produced by her Alfred, and that's who I went out with I. Oh, yeah. Yeah. He was the lead person at all. Yeah. Yeah. Both of them the two men that were over there at the time. And he and they were so kind and so nice and everybody was in and was like a college. If you like going through the UNLV or whatever everybody was just. Yeah. Cool, and they were helpful. And you never knew who you saw. Would you turn the corner and you'd run into George Harrison because he's not going to see somebody are going to do something or whatever it was that? But it was that relaxed atmosphere that it was it was amazing some of the really cool jazz and so forth and some of the early roots of Rb you mentioned the Rolling Stones before. I mean, they came and they pick up the stuff in integrate into their music. Our house. Absolutely, absolutely. I mean, you know, there's there's so many different artists who give their whole careers. You know, going back, you know, when they heard Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and all the rest of that. And we had a place called the California club that my husband was the head the band at the time and one of his bandmates that came in and he used to help to get worked for was Jimmy Hendrix, Jimmy came down from Seattle before he became the Jimi Hendrix that. We know today because he played little richer and so forth and so on because Little Richard Ray Charles and a couple of another gentleman who worked in the post office had their own studios at real oh. And I continue to turn. I can Tina Turner had their studio and LA brea forgot the don't wanna miss them too. So, you know, Los Angeles was cooking with gas. Sure was so what brought you out to Las Vegas. Well, two thousand eight we had a nine piece band. We were doing all sorts of things. And then after that it crashed nobody had any money rehire nine pieces to do anything with that time and Antonio. Wanted just to change. Anyway. Because Los Angeles was changing was too crowded. I love home, but it took grounded, and and it's. This that and the other. I mean, it's still home. But we would never thought we would come to the Vegas either. Because we were working here was I never never come out. And you know being here fourteen days at a time like with Maryland, Billy at the sands. And they there was great. But we came back and to reinvent ourselves. And that's what we did. We came here to reinvent ourselves. And we had a two year almost two and a half year residency at the elections park, which we created that with a gentleman by the name of James Junkins who became the hotel manager. And he heard our CD watch. What happens liked instead, not the kind of musical be kind of cool to do. And we created that whole spot to the point where we were even able to bring in a really great concert of fourth of July that rain John you remember that fourth of July that rain, but it was with Jeff Lorber and Gabriel Mark hassle and and Ron Paul's with Kenji and just we had just a Hct Raj, full and. Jeff was just fantastic he came and and Tony and all the backed him. And it was just it was just a great great experience. It was fun. It was a front. We call a Friday Night Live that eventually went into having a Saturday night. Event with all of the we had all the Latin music thing that was going on. And that was with my wonderful friend. Rick Lewis, just just just fantastic Royal who brought his group in and they used to just kill it on Saturday night. So everybody's dancing and doing all that he was great. But you guys I mean, it's not just talent people are listening while this person's happy, you really had a great life. Haven't you? Great life. I have great life. I've had a lot of loss. But I've had a, but, but my parents were so incisive, and my grandparents in my grandfather's favorite saying was never be afraid to live and I stick to that to this day. And my parents are always in my ears, and my shoulders and everything else, and as as time moved along and had moved them along and taking care of them in understanding with this. And that and that was and seeing really when life was about an working working now working, we're doing all that. It made me stronger for what was to come. So as Tony and I moved around here. And did so many things we continue to and had a great time. Working with the with so many different people Kelly, of course, Kelly Clinton was one of them who we hooked up with Woody words, and there were so many people who are so gracious to bring this into their fold more with Lisa gay in a moment. Up now Britain Melia porn stars presents the Vegas, art minute. I know you say it's kind of like buying a used car you want to buy it from someplace that's going to stand behind what they have. No what they've got Naci you work with you and so forth. There are charlatans out there just like any other thing. What should they be looking for before they picked that gallery and so forth to work with? Well. I think the first thing they need to do is do their research to to bet the entity.
