Welcome back to another episode of DrumGAB podcast. I think Hunter S. Thompson would enjoy episode nine. I normally get to know my guests beforehand through private messages in order to find out what makes them tick. I did that with Ian and got to know him a little bit. After a while, he mentioned to me that he had some crazy stories to tell me if I wanted to go that route in the conversation. On this podcast, there aren't really limits to content I guess. What Ian told me was apparently watered down a bit, but that's kind of like watering down gasoline I think.
The first part of the interview is about Ian's time growing up in a highly musical family. His brother Eli can play pretty much anything and do it well and his mom and dad play several different instruments as well. We talk about our mutual interest in electronic music and we reflect on the lore of Aphex Twin.
The main part of this interview is the story of when Ian was in college. He and his girlfriend were heavily caught up with heavy drug use. Ian explains some of the things that happen to them during this time and how addictions lead to a lot of unfortunate situations. The things that he shares in this interview is pretty intense. I will leave out the details on the notes.
But Ian is clear of all of that now and the future is bright indeed. He and his band mate, Tony Grey, are releasing their new album. The music featured in this podcast is Ian and Tony's band Galactic Duo and the song is titled "Awaken". He has many great opportunities ahead of him I am certain as well, with his attitude and musical skill he will go very far. I wish him all the best.
In closing, Ian has many great opportunities ahead of him I am certain as well, with his attitude and musical skill he will go very far and I wish him all the best. It is remarkable that Ian is alive and well today, as you will soon discover. It is another testimonial regarding how drums bring good quality to life and that some of us truly live for the drums.
