Today I’m chatting with musician Anton Barbeau for Episode 149. In addition to his own music, he worked with Allyson Seconds on her recent solo album (Episode 127).
Anton and I chat about the bevy of rock stars that live in Nevada City, like Jonathan Richmond; playing The Cattle Club with his old band Anton Barbeau and The Joy Boys with the likes of a sweater-wearing band; how a childhood fascination with magic blossomed into a career in showmanship; the process artists and musicians go through for creation; the love of sound and finding the structure for it; how the Stairway to Stardom through Skip’s Music helped him grow as a musician; why owning drumsticks does not a drummer make; and why physical forms of music are just as important as the music itself.
I’m participating in the Distinguished Gentlemans Ride 2017. Please make a donation to sponsor my ride to help raise funds for Prostate Cancer research and for suicide prevention by clicking here.
