This weeks guest is guitar player Mark McMillon of Hawthorne Heights. As time moves on and things keep changing Mark and Mike find themselves becoming veterans in the music industry and they’re taking it in stride. With focus on the core audience Mark and Mike talk about how they keep the music current through an ever changing beast that can only be described as an over abundance of social media and accessibility. With nostalgia being a key player in todays music, the guys are determined to make an impact and keep the dream alive.
