STEVE THE PRODUCER


STP's BLOG 04/11/13 "Soundgarden"

Yesterday was one of those experiences that I won’t forget. Often I have said, thanks to the job I have…if I took a time machine to visit 17 year old Steve and told him all the great things I would get to do, and all the musicians/celebs I would meet…the 17 year old version of me would A. ask me where my hair went. B. ask me why I’m not 170 pounds anymore. And C. Laugh me out of the room!

The reason this time is that yesterday I was one of about 40 people that got to watch an acoustic set from Soundgarden. Chris Cornell and Ben Shepherd played 5 songs for us, and it was amazing. They played 2 off their awesome new CD “King Animal” – including a favorite song off that CD, “Black Saturday”, and they also played “Black Hole Sun”, Blow Up The Outside World”, and “Fell On Black Days.” Chris even joked that there was an unintentional theme, as 3 of the 5 songs had the word “Black” in it. Words cannot describe how great this show was…the venue, Aston Manor, was perfect for it…it’s a new bar in SoDo that has a Speakeasy theme to it, easily the coolest bar I have been to. We were so close that there wasn’t a need to mic them…you could hear Chris’s voice in the room crystal clear…the acoustics were perfect. The best way to describe this performance – Goosebumps. I, and I am sure many others, had Goosebumps the entire time. Keep checking KISW.com as there will be video posted soon….we have pictures posted, here are a few of my favorite shots that my bud Iron Mike Savoia shot:

Today we ran highlights from our interview with Rob Laurie on the STP-CAST. Rob had the coolest thing happen to him last week…he’s a beer league hockey goalie (used to play at high levels of play when he was younger, but never in the NHL), and he got the call to be the back-up for the Anaheim Ducks! Long story short, Jonas Hiller was sick so their back-up Viktor Fasth was starting…that meant they needed a back up on the bench in case Viktor got hurt. They called up Igor Bobkov from the minors, but he wasn’t going to be there for the start of the game, so they were in need of someone and Rob, who knew some of the guys in the Ducks organization, got the call. So at 42 years old, Rob was in the NHL for one game! It’s an amazing story, and you should listen to the entire interview on my podcast as Rob has some awesome stories and is a funny dude! Check it out here:

Based on this...what would you like to get "the call" for? It doesn't have to be sports, but what is something you wish you could be called in to do, and why? Here are some texts we got:

I wish if get the call to host/DJ a KISW talk show for a day. -TJ the drunken sailor
