Fabulous Thunderbirds
2019-02-11 14:37 UTC

​I got the chance to see clients The Fabulous Thunderbirds in concert last night. Great show! Kim Wilson is a freakin' force of nature. He is 68 and he had some health problems last year, but he still brings more energy to his singing and harmonica playing than some guys in their 20s.

Get Out Of Your Own Way
2019-02-06 23:05 UTC

Cris: As you become more serene in your personal life, are you more relaxed in your playing as a result?

Troy Luccketta, drummer for Tesla: I think it is. If I have a great night, awesome! If I have a bad night, usually I am getting in the way. I'm trying too hard. If I can stay out of the way, when I get on the stage and I can just...

Lyrical Guitar Playing
2019-02-05 22:40 UTC

Cris: Your guitar playing to me always comes across as very lyrical, in the sense that it is material you can sing back to someone. As a guitar player, how much were you influenced by singers? 

Scotty Johnson of the Gin Blossoms: That's an interesting point, because I'm not much of a singer, but I realized a while ago that I had to...

Shake, Rattle, And Roll
2019-01-31 20:16 UTC

Cris: Regarding your latest album, "Shake, Rattle, And Roll", the title track… normally those words, those lyrics are part of fast-paced, party music. But you made them part of a ballad, and a love song at that. How did that comes about?

Tim Charron: I was in Narragansett, Rhode Island. At the time I didn't have too many love songs....

Drawn To The Drums
2019-01-30 22:52 UTC

​Cris: What drew you to the drums?

Michael McDermott, drummer for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts: When I was a little kid, there was a music store right near this Italian restaurant we would go to. We'd get done with dinner and my two sisters and I would always run next door to A - Z Music. And the drums just always did something for...

Growth As A Musician
2019-01-29 16:58 UTC

Cris: You talked about the fact that, if you are a sideman, you have to grow with your front man as he or she is growing and pushing himself. With that in mind, how have your grown in the last 19 or 20 years?

Ben Sesar, drummer for Brad Paisley: I think growth is measured in how you parallel with your artist. I've had to develop certain...

Song Versatility
2019-01-27 21:13 UTC

Cris: There are two very different versions of "Man On The Run". There is the one on the album "Are You With Me?" that you play in concert with Cowboy Mouth, and then there is the version from your "Apples and Onions" solo album that you play in solo shows. Did you intentionally create that song to be so versatile?
