After 20 years as an artist, making music, touring, and amassing an undying worldwide fan base, Matt Skiba has a lot to say about who he works with and the music business. In this riveting, in-depth conversation Matt reveals, for the first time publicly, his recent sobriety and the tools he is using to stay sober. The guys go on to discuss books, film, religion, aging-well, meditation, malt liquor, Matt’s ability to write a song in an hour, and yes, even rock stars have tattoos that need covering up. While getting behind the music, literally, Matt tells a cautionary tale about over-sharing with his ex-wife (the experience turned into a great song). It’s an open, intriguing look inside the mind and world of one of punk’s heroes.
Great interview with Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio. He’s the one I attribute to finding TM, which he mentions in the podcast. So cool.
