Was that my favorite band of all times, Kraftwerk went in as an early influence, they were off the main performer about it for years. Never understood why they didn't go in when there's so many bands out there, claiming that they're an influence to them.

"A i think we did a gig in detroit and it was james cotton the hello people who essentially with my mac bob songs and with mime skits in between the stooges while the stooges and the naff wow let me. You couldn't get much more eclectic than that. I mean we just he thinks oh data and and the grateful dead all of those weird kinds of combinations of things everybody at at least those days kind of they were interested in those odd acts that they had never heard of before white audiences being exposed to black artists. Bb king suddenly looking out and seeing like nothing but white faces and as often be magic. What a weird kind of transformation that that is from playing just little juke joints for the same audience. You always been playing with and then this whole revolution evolution of music where suddenly you're welcome into these gigantic venues with every other artist in the world. It was a a golden era and music and festivals. I kind of like a way to try and recapture the what essentially would happen in one night in a place the fillmore. Of course those old fillmore bills were like. Yeah miles davis and steve miller band. And then neil young crazy horse was just. I look back at those bills. And i'm just like man. I was definitely born in the wrong time because those tickets were like a dollar fifty. The ticket was always the same price. Wasn't bledsoe at the top of the bill. Suddenly these voices much now. Nobody first of all nobody was carrying a whole broadway. Show with them either. I i guess the last thing we could do just do you have any anything else. New coming out a new record or anything sometime in the next couple of weeks. I'll have another single coming out on. Might space force project. This one will be. A collaboration was sparks. Oh great i love sparks.

"What was your first rock and roll. Show some kind of early rock and roll pre beatles thing and it was mostly i think of our embiid groups like a monotones. I remember the monotones. They did the book of love. Oh yeah well allow one. New wonder do and wrote the book love. I went with an older friend. And yeah first time i had seen live performers on rock and roll performers on a stage and just was fascinated by it. I wasn't even paying much attention to the music. It just the spectacle of it for some reason was it caught my attention. They have a decent. Pa system there because my dad always talks about when he went to see the beatles. Nineteen sixty six and they had these like little horse racing speakers like there was nothing as far as system wendy's what essentially was the regular not a that they did and i had no basin it really unique but apparently everyone's spring so much over every over all of it would never did any. My dad said the phenomenon of jesse was enough for him. But he's like. I couldn't make heads or tails at anything musically speaking i went to see hard day's night in a movie theater and there was so much screaming. It could hardly hear what was gonna stay. How do you feel you've lived through pretty vast expanses of stupidity as far as presidents. Go how are you feeling today about everything. We really thought. George bush was unqualified. And then this break accident happened. We'll have to think of as a free counseling unfortunate side effect. That is revealed the dark underbelly of america. That's always been there but didn't feel emboldened until we actually had a black president and then they start to get real loud mouth bound. It costs pretending. Not i mean when mitch. Mcconnell said i'm gonna make this guy one term president. He wasn't thinking that at all if you could get away with it because the guy was black. No not at all. I said not. All republicans are racist. But if you're a racist you're absolutely. I find that to be a hundred percent. True one hundred percent of the time what they call. A republican party isn't even a political party. It's a criminal enterprise that uses the mechanisms of politics to further. Its ends and it wasn't until they found donald trump that they've found some once completely corrupt that he would take full advantage of the fact that it was a criminal enterprise. Republicans have been liars since before there was liars and gerrymanders and boats suppressors. How do you get a minority party that stays in power by aac crookedness essentially and lying. And that's and we're still living with that. So while i while i am hopeful and while the rash i got running up to the election has gone away. Well we'll see what happens mitch. Mcconnell is still same corrupt creep. Daddy always was. I think of him like a lizard or like an evil turtle or something reverse story dorian grid oscar wilde story about a guy who was a portrait in that and he's like a really evil mass but none of bit seems to affect him. It all appears on the portrait that he has in the end though the portrait gets uglier and uglier and uglier looking like idiots like of course looking at the end of the story is that if he ever lays eyes on the portrait and suddenly all comes back yali mitch mcconnell's dory gray and reverse. He's got a handsome picture of himself in the attic and every evil thing he does appears right on his face so moving on from politics. You are going to do a virtual tour and i'm a musician. The vast majority of my income comes from touring. You've been thinking about this for a long time. So did the pandemic lead you to this place. Where like. I can finally fucking do this thing that i've always wanted to do while. It wasn't so much that that i could do it. But i had us they. I was supposed to do a tour as past. May like may and june then. They moved to like august-september then they moved it again. Little later in the air then they moved it to this february and when they moved it again i said all right i have to do something. I can't just like be the victim of circumstances and expecting to go out and tour and then nothing happens. So all of my ideas about alternative ways of delivering. The service started to become actually relevant. My initial had more to do with me as a performer and how travel was affected because of climate change. I tried to get less travel in my touring instead of doing a typical Tour thing where you you have. Primary markets in. Try it again. Tying them together with secondary markets and you got to play at least five nights a week so you take any gig that you can get just to cover a on nights worth of expenses. So it changed the whole touring thing to be two nights in major markets. And then two nights. Aw and kind of making the audience travel more than i do in a way but also playing nicer venues but instead of being on a bus all the time i would fly usually today the show and i found myself ever more waiting for a delayed flight and wondering whether i'm going to get to my gig on time or having a flight cancelled and then going through a whole panic routine with my travel agent trying to reroute me to wherever i'm supposed to go. And most of this was because of ever greater number of storms particularly in the atlantic. So like major hubs like miami ilana and jfk and new york area all beginning closed down ever more frequently because of the increasing numbers storms. And that isn't even the only effect of oh the climate change if you wanted to tour california. That's past summer. That would have been pretty weird because the whole state was on fire. Half of texas was under water. This kind of thing. That's going to happen more and more often. I played a show in Portland oregon a couple years ago when there is the big wildfires out there and we didn't outdoor show in edgefield or and we all had to wear masks during the show. It was insane. This is even pre cove mask. I'm wearing a mask on stage. Getting soot all over my drums from the fire. New also live out in kwai or you have a plan kurai. I lived here. You are you seeing any effects of climate change out there. Well i imagine there are the the more macro effects like polar melting and that sort of thing crosses the shorelines the in visible ways The normal weather patterns of somehow change maybe a little bit in our particular location favor. I mean we were supposed to get hurt serious hurricane this summer and just veered off to the north and didn't happen one of the reasons why i got to move here. Because there was a a really terrible hurricane nineteen ninety-three the of which went right over this island and completely rectum..

"Reach our on his. We have to reassure ourselves that we can play you know so so put together this virtual tour and How fun man. that's awesome. I can't wait. I can't wait to hear it. I have to before we're done. I have to ask you a. I also read siddhartha multiple times and there. Aren't that many books. I've read multiple times. And what do you think it is about. Hess's version of the story that brings you back to it and that is so alive to us. And what is it about that. That thing that that matters a lot. I think you know anyone who was affected by a by the book Which are in case. You don't know about sitar the Hermann hesse nobel winning author Essentially paraphrase the life of buddha And buddha or the characters are in a in the book Grows up on a cloistered environments and is never really confronted with the harsh realities of life and then suddenly in like one afternoon or something. It all changes. He sees a sick person and he's never seen anybody with sick before he sees a were person someone with no possessions all living on the street and season dead person. He has never seen a dead person anymore. And so all of this just eats. Adam and destroys is contentment in the upbringing. Any had any determines within himself that he's going to go out and find the answers for himself and so the book is all his adventures through life I threw like asceticism in denial and and and debasement of his body and then through the exact opposite the pleasures of the body. Yeah pleasures of the body. You know You know he just whatever he does. It all comes back eventually to eat at. You know he doesn't understand what is all about it whatever. It is the meaning of his life. The meaning of all whatever it is it just constantly eats them until finally at the end of the book he realizes that it's all in kind of a sense of resignation. You know that it just is what it is and you have to stop fighting it and accepted for what it is and And a lot of people and for me reflects your personal journey. You know suddenly discovering it you leave home you know the harsher realities of life You know i know on close to me had ever died for instance Until like i was nineteen till i was nineteen years old and then someone that i knew suddenly died and just freaked me out the whole idea that someone would be there and then suddenly not be there and that was verse lama. I had ever confronted debt. And and so the book on the story. More importantly the story that's embodied in the book is you know reflects Reflected my life than a and i think it reflects light for a lot of people when you go out into the world and you suddenly discover that sometimes it doesn't seem fair and you wonder why isn't it fair. You know what was going on here and everyone will come up with their own answers. The book does not provide you know. Okay here's the answer you know. Here's the answer. The line is just that he finds his answer. And the whole point of it. I guess is to seek you know to not not just like cover your eyes or crawl under the beds you know. Put your face in the lights to continue to seek Maybe you will sign satisfaction. But don't give up on it. Just keep keep plugging away. That's thrice to try something different. You know maybe that'll maybe that'll leads the new knowledge and And eventually some sort of peace beautifully. Sad and i see it reflected in your journey as an artist and it's clear that Your journey and an artist as an artist. You know this kind of a constant search for discovery of what makes you feel alive and what you can give in that way. If you don't know tie redmond's work. I mean you do know is where you unless you ran departure i Otherwise you know you know his work. Where can people find out about this tour. Todd how can they get involved in You know cap in.

"It was like managing a carnival. You know the man so many so many hanger on you know groupies and presque is the press loved the van because they played a level of music that rock writers could imagine playing themselves. Because required extreme, yes. That's a coup for you as It was so unchallenged. Understand that really well, so you know then rock critic started forming their own bands after that but. Yeah. We somehow managed to get through the record without anybody die because soon after we've finished the record, they started dying. And, yeah! It didn't really do anything when they released it. I don't think there was any precedent for you know how to sell this kind of sloppy. And what was mostly? Rolling Stones inspired early. Rolling Stones Inspired Most people say oh that their punk rock band, but they really emulating the stones during their drag period. You know mother's little helper, and that sort of thing that's why they all dressed up and come semi. Drag the lead singer David thought. Yeah David Johansen kind of thought. He was Mick Jagger.

For like five hundred dollars. So, he was from New York like how did. They had no idea what this was about, you know he just read. that he read it into microphone, and took his money and left, and I think years later he found out the context of it and was very upset from what I heard. Yeah, I was GonNa say what happens when the cat was out the bag. And at what point they realized we've been had or what about? Mad, because it's also one of the one of it's the third biggest selling album of all time so. Yeah it's. It's up to your around forty million copies or something like that and. It's it. What do they care at worked? If I hadn't thought that they would no. No producer at all. How, how long was it until they caught on that Wait a minute. Probably I probably said it sometime you know wants. Somebody interviewed me about it I'd probably mention it. You know where you were. You were approached about producing that held to. I Did Produce Bat Outta Hell Shit. I didn't realize that? Yes, we did. We made the whole recording, and then we went into took get his vocals down and meatloaf suddenly went. And said there's something wrong with my voice. I can't sing. He'd been like singing. He was a bit too hard and taking too much cocaine, or whatever something like that, and permanently screwed his voice up, which took lopped a couple notes off the top of his registered, and made them sound really weird and the way that Stein would write was at least the way he wrote the first record was. What's the highest note you can hit meatloaf? Okay, all right everything from there down. You know in other words. That note you're GonNa hit it a long time..

"The songs were all really long. You know they didn't have traditional forms, you know. Stein intended to write backwards sometimes from certain things like he would leave big parts of the song on finished, but say to me okay I would like a giant choir to sing for the next thirty six bars, and then I'd have to come up with something for it. You know he wouldn't write anything. You just have to come up with some thing that played off the themes that he had already done so i. go down to a rehearsal studio in New York City, to see them I knew who meatloaf was I didn't know who time in was. I'd seen MEATLOAF AW rocky. Horror show. On Broadway so I was aware of the fact that. Awhile I wasn't going to be surprised about how fatty was. Put it that way. And they essentially performed for me. Meat Loaf Steinman on the piano and to Background Singers Rory Dot Ellen Foley. And they performed essentially all Bat Outta hell with just the four of them the entire album in front of you on not. On the album you know like good percentage of the album you know he's like a moment with Kanye. West and I'm listening to this on saying. I WanNa do this record and the reason why I WANNA do. It is because it's a spoof of Bruce springsteen. Bruce springsteen was like the biggest thing was on the cover of Time magazine, the Savior of rock and roll you know and to me it's just retro music, you know it's music out of the fifties, syncopal motorcycles, leather jackets, and that's what of junk you know, and that's exactly what meatloaf the singing about you know so I thought. This is great I'm going to do a spoof of Bruce Springsteen, and this is going to be it and I never told them that that's what I was thinking. They took it. Took it totally seriously the whole time you know and. I was like Yes yes, this is so springsteen. Oh I've gotTA. Stop right here, so there's actually members of the band on.

The irony being now that I can sing all night and it doesn't seem to affect me whether any of your peers that you look to to kind of. Did she do it in a way like anybody else any other artists that you looked at and like okay well peers the ones that are still alive know. When you? Live. Fifteen minutes? That's what I meant like Oh. Yeah, well, you know. It's not an uncommon thing and what happens is most people. I guess I would write aspirational. I would write to the very ends of my range. When I was in the studio, because all I had to do like hit the note once and then we'll punch it in to that. Punching every freaking note. But then you have to go out on the road and seeing all those notes on a row and I was just wasn't prepared for that, but what a lot of people will do, they'll just simply. They'll compensate. You know they'll say okay. I'll just low key or I won't right into that range. You know I'll. Alan. I won't. I won't strange I won't, strain myself. But, I still always aspirational I. Just you know. There were singers that I admired that I wanted to sound like and so I just kept trying to do that. You know I was a giant Stevie. Wonder Fan, you know there's always trying to sing like stevie wonder at which is an impossible thing to try and attempt in the first place, but I got just so much inspiration from singing and more importantly. It was weird artifact of the way they recorded at motown. Particularly the way that he has his voice got recorded. They put so much compression on his voice, because probably because he's so loud. That you could hear every breath. He took good here every breath he was taking in between the notes, and it taught me how to breathe. When you sing, it's more about having wind than it is about you know your throat and trying to. Stretch it hard enough to get to those high notes. You know so I just. I. Learned a lot from listening to other people sing, but that was a revelatory moment when I suddenly realised I should just go and go on my car drive around for our screaming my head off. Around screaming your head off, and after enough of that I started to gain stamina. You know to be able to actually hit those notes. Is it possible for you to listen? To music by other artists and not get in sort of the analytical mode of. I wonder what might they used or what tubing or what? The engineering was and too much compression and I would have changed this and. Like, can you just are you able to listen to music without dissecting it as you hear it as an engineer or as a producer? Well like all things you know. It really depends on the strength of the performance in the music and this is. In line with my philosophy as a producer..

"It. So essentially it would be like the the most squishy limiter that you ever heard, and the highs will be the highest highs because we were using. DB, X., LINEAR COMPRESSION AND I won't explain what that is now, but essentially. Accidents half of what happened on that record was accidents. I was wiring I was on my back underneath the console. Wiring it while the musicians are coming in for the first session. You know and we're just finding channels that work you know. Mark that one I'll fix that later, but we just. Get enough channels to. Record everybody okay. It was like that all the time. It was just guerrilla recording. Because you know, we had no studio manager. Nobody ever paid anything to use the studio. We would contribute to each other's projects and stuff. It was a little musical collective. It was great. And your your label. You're labeled like Bears Ville. How were they Were they supportive because I mean? There's a Lotta stuff you were doing. I mean it was really unorthodox, and you know a song like I saw the light or co more than like you know just, which is some of my favorite songs? but like those are Kinda just kind of easier to digest, but then on the wizards a true star. You went really kind of heavy what? have. You ever got John Lennon's reaction to rock and Roll Pussy. Not that particular thing? and I wasn't about wasn't particularly about I. Don't think it was about John Lennon. All all can't remember exactly when. Press manufactured feud was but. Yeah the. Some people at the label really freaked out my friend Paul fish can lay went on to found modern records. He was running the label at the time, and after something anything that had like three hit singles on it. I give him a wizard star, which doesn't which doesn't even have spaces between the songs. Louis that record though. Now, but then you know he is freaking out. How do I do I sell this? You know this is the lost album now. While at Grossman is just tickled pink..

Yes, he was a kid I i. met on your album as what like fifteen something like fifteen sixteen something like that? When Bowie put? Ten Yeah Yeah. Yeah. That dope at the age of fourteen fifteen. He was, he was getting a drum lessons from well. People don't know this probably if you know who soupy sales is because people probably don't soupy sales. Your motown, which people don't know that? Yes. You can do it in your house. Yeah. Do you guys know. He was a comedian right or On My Saturday morning. He was like Saturday morning Saturday afternoon. Kids show host. that's how he got famous, because his show went coast to coast when he became the soupy sales show right, but previous to that. He was a local late night host in Cleveland, and he would have. Johnny Carson and he would have all the great. All the jazz greats come in and play. On his show and talk on his talk show, and so he knew everybody I. Remember going with him and hunting Tony to see like an eighty five year old gene Krupa play. The jazz club that was in the in the Plaza Hotel in the basement of the Plaza Hotel. So funny, gene, crew, grin, and like he always did, but could barely looked sticks trump. But you know, he knew everybody, jazz, and hunt gut lessons from Louis Belsen. Gra Technique Drummers of all time right and one of the first guy I think. Do Double Bass drums. I met them. A place called Steve Paul's the scene there used to be in New York City and in a lot of cities, there used to be a lot of music clubs where they serve no liquor for instance the. The Cafe Gogo in New York City, which was a basement club very weird configuration that I saw creams first gigs in the US there so butterfield ban probably four times there saw John Mail, and all these and and. Richie havens before woodstock you know. You know all these greats would play in this tiny little club, but but you know I mean the admission was probably ten bucks, and the one drink minimum was like a flower vase full of ice cream. You know like a giant milkshake because you know. These places were opened. Underage Kids and Steve Paul's a seamless the same way you know all ages if your mom would let you..

"And it just was I was never meant for that kind of That kind of discipline at school required. Russell everything I learned I learned after I left school. So what was the? What was the moment where you decided that? This is this is my destiny. This is my my moment in music. Well ahead of highschool man and as previously cited I did so terribly in high school that there was no possibility of me going to college. It would only have been possible if I- Atlanta's some kind of scholarship anyway, because my. Dad didn't make that much money. and. So. After high school graduation, which was just around eighteenth birthday on my eighteenth birthday I packed all my worldly goods into typewriter case at that point. I didn't even have a guitar anymore. And I left home and went to meet a friend of mine who was a drummer, and we were gonNA start a ban and he was supposedly in ocean city so I got on a bus. It was my eighteenth birthday, so the first thing I did is I went to sixty ninth street, right across the sixty nine th street station and registered for the draft. Yeah Yeah. And then I got on a bus to ocean city met up with the sky while I didn't meet up with them right away, because apparently he and he was hanging out with some guys who were stealing park benches, and hiding them in their garage in ocean, city and so. Like had to find a place to stay overnight till he had his court date the next day. Why would they still park bench? In Ocean city. This is nine hundred sixty six. It anything okay. Yeah, and so you know I went to his house with him and his parents a couple days later, we went to see. The birds and the shadows of Knight at a summer stock. Tenth Little concert thing so it was the birds. They were big on radio. The shadows of Knight they had a hit and a local band called Woody's truckstop. Okay. We were kind of excited to see them because. I knew about them through seeing a picture of one of the Guitar Player one of the guitar players in. Might have been time, magazine or something, because he grows hair long and beat the system because I was having trouble. All Time I was always growing my hair, always sending me home, and my dad would send me to the barber, and this was just an endless cycle, and he essentially beat the system. He was a straight a student, and so judge said you can't. Not Educate them, so they made him. It made the school provide them with. A private telephone line I and there was a picture of him at a desk with his long hair in a little speaker phone and I thought man he beat the system. And the way he was, he said I'm in a band. You know I have to have my hair long I'm in a band. So. And so. I was excited to see them although I had never heard them I had no idea what kind of music they did. But they really like they kind of like kick. Everybody's ass I had so much energy, and they were basically a blues band. Blues are and be they re they did like. I think they did a SAM and Dave. Song and they did a couple of blue songs and. We saw God. That's that's great..
