You’ve never heard of Varsity Heroes? Dang.
Well, they were a pretty big deal.
The guitar player’s kid brother once met Nick Wheeler of All-American Rejects outside of the Campbell Gaslighter. I think he was in a band called Jesus Abs, or something like that. Good band. Kid could play, that’s for sure.
Flash forward a few years. Chris -the guy who had his makeup done by Maroon 5- now plays for this band called Talkie...from San Francisco. I'm pretty sure they once played on the same stage as the Grateful Dead. They put out an album called Hablas back in 2015. It’s not for everyone. I enjoyed it tho. Very 60's. And then like a year or two ago, they came out with some nu-disco, soul trash. Like they’re Daryl Hall & John Oates or something. Fundamental Things, they called it. A lot more synth than I prefer. The 80’s sucked and kicked all the jam-bands outta LA.
Whatever. They put out another record like 11 months after that. Pretty quick turnaround, if you ask me. They brought back the fuzzy guitars, which is more my jam. Called it Everything Matters, or something like that. Not sure why that matters. Nobody listens to records anymore -especially Rock records. I’ve actually been really getting into podcasts lately.
