Episode 007: Ryan and Matt Are Old Part II – John Is Also Old
How old are we? Old enough that John remembers his dad working on repairing 8-track players for Ford, that’s how old. So that’s where we start this podcast, sittin’ around on the figurative porch in our creaky old rockers and reminiscing about Led Zeppelin and Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, vinyl and cassette tapes, and the future of music being beamed straight to your ears via satellite. (Well, all of it except for that last part.) Sound like that’s up your alley? It should – you also grew up when we did (the 1980s and 1990s). All of you. You are hereby connected to our wavelength. Allow us to enter your frontal lobes and cerebral cortices. We’ll pass you the jug marked “XXX” if you behave.
I think somewhere in there John tries to sing Live’s “Lightning Crashes,” and may actually do it better than Live did. Remember how Ed Kowalczyk, the band’s singer, played the waiter in that one scene in Fight Club, steering Ed Norton’s character away from the soup because it was presumably tainted with some type of human matter? I wish he would have sang “Lightning Crashes,” right there, right to Norton’s face. That would have shut him up big time.
Haha! So, apparently Live broke up, with Kowalczyk going solo. The other members formed a band with members of Candlebox. Let that sink in. And then Live “reformed” with a new singer. Click on that link again, you’ll see the doofus under the departure entry. Let the hilarity ensue!
