This week on the podcast, I catch up with my guitarist Mike Russo, who has co-written many of my favorite songs with me, including “Do the Bruce Campbell”, “1984” and “Mike Russo Cut Your Hair” (surprise!). Mike and I reminisce on our thirteen years of friendship, our tour with mc chris, how Napster created a new wave of musicians, and the world of college music booking. Recorded on the eve of our recent Boston show with Big D and the Kids Table, we talk about “This Gigantic Robot Kills” and how Mike’s Megadeth-inspired guitar playing technique helped give the live MC Lars band a live "rap metal" sound I always wanted. It gets hella real!! Thanks Mike! Special Guest: Mike Russo.
