100 – 100th Episode Special: A Very Non-Serious Nashville Drummer Round Table
We are excited to share a special edition of our 100th episode by bringing you a fun round table discussion among a group of Nashville drummers, AKA “The Cocksmiths”. This round table should have some familiar names as many have been guests on this podcast. It includes: Kevin Murphy, Ben Sesar, Billy Freeman, Tucker Wilson, Kyle Wilkerson, Keio Stroud, Wil Easterwood, Rob Mitchell and Jeff Brown. Missing from the discussion were Russ Whitman & Zack Stewart.
Covering a wide range of ages and music career experiences, this group of friends has evolved into a “support group” of drummers that utilizes its collective experiences as well as sick sense of humor to create a safe space for the members to hang, have fun and be there for each other.
In this podcast, the group talks about:
Playing Cards Against Humanity for drummers
The “origin story” of this group and why it exists
The intentional safe space they’ve created for each other to show support as well as give each other total shit
A group of honest friends, not a “networking” group
Favorite Spinal Tap line / scenario
Favorite Buddy Rich line ever
What would you do if you didn’t play drums
What we need more of / What we need less of
Taking honest advice from your buddies
