If you haven’t checked out the Patcast yet I highly recommend it … it’s Pat Monahan (better known by his legal name, “Pat Monahan from the band Train“) sitting around talking with different musician friends (and playing songs with them too).
It’s bizarrely revealing to hear a rock star interview other rock stars, and to hear them compare notes on the other side of the business. The first one I heard was with Matt Nathanson (I know, weird that I would track that one down right? So out of character for me to find every.single.Matt.Nathanson.thing.online, but whatever) and I was hooked.
Pat’s style of interviewing is super-relaxed but he’s definitely into it; his humor is very dry, and some of the funniest parts are when he’s playfully mean to the guest – and when I say “playfully” I mean he’s just straight-up mean and it’s freakin’ hilarious.
This Patcast is with another one of my favorite people, Gavin Degraw – he’s hyper and loopy and hilarious and OH HI THEY TALK ABOUT ALICE! Huge thanks to listener Julie who emailed me and let me know about the shout-out. after I’d tweeted how much I love Gavin’s new song.
Check it out here (the Alice shout-out is at 22:15.) Love!
