Stereo Embers The Podcast: Shavo Odadjian (System Of A Down)
By Alex Green Online
“Shavo Odadjian Is Always Busy” You probably tell people you’re super busy all the time, but very few people are Shavo Odadjian busy. The System of A Down bassist is one of those guys who runs at his most optimum when he’s got a full day ahead of him. This comes as no surprise—after all, this is a guy who, during his college days, went to class, managed a band, played in a band and worked at a bank. Although System of a Down are one of the biggest bands on the planet and Shavo could sit back and rest on his laurels, one could argue that he’s busier now than ever. HIs latest endeavor is 22 Red, a lifestyle and fashion brand that features pre rolls and vapes that were exclusively made for the company using lab-tested compliant cannabis. In this chat Shavo talks to Alex about where the inspiration for the company came from, why he works best when he’s busiest and what his college counselor told him when he said he wanted to drop out of school and pursue music. Shave also talks about being a dad, his relationship with his bass and the definition of happiness.
