Punk Legend Stephen Egerton of The Descendents/ALL on MHH #132

I look up to Stephen for many reasons. One of those reasons has to do with his steady hands nailing down the guitar on some of most honest and raw songs. These songs were the anthem to my youth. Some of the most cherished and impacting songs of my teen years and have been with me well into my adult experience.

I'm talking about both The Descendents and ALL. A heavy musical influence on how I viewed and practiced songwriting and even touring and performing. The songs, the guys, the stories, the struggle is real from not being able to sell out a telephone booth to now headlining giant rock festivals all over the world.

 

We talk about the day to day logistics, recording, mixing, building, making a living writing music and also the good ole days when we first met up and started hanging out on Warped Tour 97'. So much but it still had some focus to it.

Just listen below. Stephen is seriously the best dude!

Here's his site stephenegerton.com if you need some mixing or mastering done. Or hire him to voice something for you. Your answering machine maybe? Just kidding, don't ask him to do that.
