I get together with Blake Wyland @TheToneMob on all socials. 

We talk about all my gear set up as well as how he got his own podcast and The Tone Mob empire started. 

We cover my basses, acoustics, amps, some pedals, and general gear related stories. This was fun and I'm pretty sure you will love it. Here we go!

We sat down over a few beers in Australia while we were touring together. This is a band that has stood the test of time and come out riding a nice wave. Always the best times hanging with these guys.

This was one of my favorite conversations with an amazing songwriter, performer and guitar legend! His band the Living End is one of the all time greatest to come out of Australia. 

We talk about the old memories for tours long past and we also talk about the tour we were on right then. 

 

Enjoy this one!

#269 Bernie Leos - Tumbledown Touring Mexico

Lead singer of Mexican Ska Punk band Los Kung Fu Monkeys, music business man and good friend of mine  joins the podcast to talk about our days on tour together in Mexico. Bernie used to book the tours and was our tour manager on a one very ill fated tour. But the memories are pure gold and I still love Mexico. I can't wait to go back. 

Of note. Bernie translated and actually rewrote the lyrics for my song "Great Big World" into Spanish. Instead of some of the great American Cities that Tumbledown played in, we did a Mexican version of all the great cities of Mexico. Hope you enjoy it if you listen. It's gotta be kind of amusing to hear me sing en Español. ;)

You can hear the track anywhere you stream music. Search Tumbledown Great Big World Spanish. 

Don't miss this and in case you missed the last podcast with #268 Harley Trotland (Drummer) #267 with Jack Parker, go listen to those too.They go right along with this.

Keith Underwood @underwoodtattoo 

Keith was brought up in the tattoo world as a traditional tattoo artist. With an apprenticeship under Mike “Rollo Banks” Malone (who has worked with the great traditional tattoo artists “Sailor Jerry” Collins and Ed Hardy), Keith’s career path led him to the knowledge of traditional ways of tattooing and his way of doing business.

In recent years Keith has been building a boxing empire with his company Underwood Promotions that puts on boxing events in the city of Austin, TX including Tattooed gloves, a charity event that has professional tattooers get in the ring with each other. 

Keith sounds like a busy man, but he has proved that he can handle running multiple businesses and raise a family at the same time. With a solid shop to call his own in Texas, Keith is looking forward to making it as successful as his other businesses and spending more time with his wife and their two boys, Rooster Malone and Johnny Cash.
