Hello. My name is Craig Reynolds, I play the drums in a band called Stray From The Path and this podcast is basically a series of relaxed conversations with my friends who are mostly other professional drummers, musicians, artists and/or idiots/legends. Enjoy.
Ed Gamble - Comedian
My guest this week is comedian and far-more-famous podcaster Ed Gamble. As well as being an immensely successful stand-up and TV comedian, Ed (alongside co-host James Acaster) also hosts one of the internet's biggest podcasts 'Off Menu' where guests share their dream menu. Unbeknownst to some Ed is also a keen metal fan, with a very surprising top 5 bands. I think he's more legit than me. Basically asked him what it's like to do comedy for a living, we talked about metal, and he made me a laugh a lot (LAL). Shout out to Sam Carter for facilitating this episode by telling his famous mates to come on. Peace!
Only Flams (Luxury Communism)
A small solo podcast to update you with the my plans for the future. http://www.onlyflams.com
Aaron Marshall - Intervals
My guest this week is Aaron Marshall, virtuoso guitarist and better known as the brains/everything behind the musical group Intervals. Aaron started Intervals in Ontario Canada as an outlet for his musical creativity in 2011 and it has since existed in many different iterations. We talk about the band's beginnings and various line ups as well as his unlikely inspirations that draw from the unlikeliest of places. We also go deep on fitness, mental and physical rehabilitation, microdosing, supplementation and way more. It was a great chat.
Mat Welsh - While She Sleeps
My guest this week is Mat Welsh, guitarist/vocalist of While She Sleeps. WSS have just launched an ambitious crowdfunding campaign 'Sleeps Society', aimed at bringing fans a closer experience whilst also securing finances to support the future of the band during these uncertain times. Being old friends and touring buddies we talk a fair bit about that as well. It was a r8 laugh. That's Sheffieldish for 'It was very fun'. Peace!
Bryce Krawczyk - World Record Powerlifter
My guest this week is Bryce Krawczyk. Bryce is a world record holding powerlifter and coach from Calgary, Canada. Bryce is the co-owner of the popular youtube fitness channel Calgary Barbell, where he provides amazing content for the lifting community. We spoke about many things, including how I can't get my MOJO back about the gyms reopening. He actually wrote me a back-to-basics plan which you can download on the Downbeat IG. As an avid fan of heavy music and tattoos, we also talk about those a bunch and bond over his incredibly heavy top 5 bands.
Matthew Heafy - Trivium
My guest this week is Matthew Heafy, singer and guitarist of the metal band Trivium and, King Of Streaming. Matt and Trivium have recently paved the way in the music industry's 'new-normal' of streaming. They recently completed the metal world's first (actual) paid live-streamed gig with 10k+ tickets sold and Matt himself has one of, if not THE biggest presence in the world of live music streaming. We talked about Trivium's plans to build a stream-ready aircraft hanger (!?) and also about his upcoming Japanese mythology inspired side project: Iburaki. Other than this I basically asked him how I can do something similar to his twitch and survive without having to sell you guys T-shirts. Enjoy!
