Thank you Jim Dudukovich!
In this episode we talk about cool bands and stories, like how our guest sat in on drums with the Circle Jerks in New York because Chuck Biscuits, the drummer, wasn't able to play and our guest knew all their songs.
Jack Rabid is the publisher and creative genius behind "The Big Takeover," a bi-annual music magazine published out of New York City, going on 42 years now. It reads like a music encyclopedia or mix tape guidebook, including 60-80 pages of album reviews written by Jack himself. Jack’s a drummer and vocalist and has played in a number of bands. And he’s a veteran of the “punk era,” emanating from New York City. But mostly, he’s a music lover.
This interview kicks right in, mid conversation, with us talking about Jack’s softball game that he just got home from. I ended up just hitting record, 86’ing the formalities of a “hello,” and rolling tape.
No one talks about music like Jack Rabid. Here we go…
