This week on #SlapperCast: Trunk or treating, musicians & humor, and Christmas music we don’t hate.
This week on SlapperCast as we leave a rowdy gig in the Texas Rennaissance Faire campgrounds, we continue our discussion of music biopics. What would it take to make a good one, what makes them bad, and a few ideas we have for good ones.
(CORRECTION from Chad: “Bowie was kicking a *cocaine* addiction during his Berlin Trilogy period, not heroin. My bad.”)
The story behind BLAGMATIC’s “hidden” track, the audiobook of Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography, why music biopics are often bad, and what makes them good when they’re good.
NOTE: Stevie Van Vandt does indeed read the audiobook of his memoir, and it pretty much sounds exactly as ECH envisioned it (see link below).
Recorded on the road to Weston, MO, AND on the road home from Hesston, KS, with longtime Blaggards fiddler Chris Buckley.
