funny, cool stories that are totally relatable if you’ve ever played in a band!
A combination of Detroit music history, entertaining stories from people who were part of the scene, opinions on current music trends, evolution of the industry, it's future and whatever else may occur to them at the moment! A good, entertaining listen.
Kinda like kicking back over a beer and telling war stories!
