    Chris Chocolaad and Stephen Alloy use the socratic method and improv to develop the ultimate 10 questions for Charlie Watts, drummer for the The Rolling Stones.  We focus on The Rolling Stones 1968 album Beggars Banquet.  Our discussion led into the Stones' famous corporate retreat where they thought outside the box, my childhood friend who became a Yogi monk, and other issues. It's all fun. We listened to the vinyl album, researched interviews & documentaries, and scoured scholarly journals to develop the ultimate 10 questions.  With lots of fun along the way!

    10 Questions for Kris Bentley | Sundy Best | Door without a Screen

    10 Questions for Kris Bentley | Sundy Best | Door without a Screen

    We use the socratic method and improv to develop 10 questions for Kris Bentley of the duo Sundy Best, and have a lot of fun along the way! I asked Joe Campisi what artist we should talk about next and he immediately mentioned the band Sundy Best. I must admit a bit of reluctance. After a bit of research on their meteoric rise and learning the duo's drummer plays the Cajon, I thought lets give it a shot! We listened to Sundy Best's debut album Door without a Screen, researched interviews, newspaper articles, and peer reviewed journals to find the ultimate 10 questions to ask Kris Bentley!
