Imagine stepping into the concert poster you had on your wall as a little kid, and never emerging from your dream, BUT still evolving and improving yourself for the 2 decades you’ve been living the dream..
Welcome to the world of Adam Blake, an inspiring and positive musician and person who has a new album out this FRIDAY 10/9/15 with his band H2o. It’s called USE YOUR VOICE and you need to pick it up. H20 is a band made of unique personalities and lifestyles, and they have so much respect for the roots, each other, and you! Plus they got that PMA at levels rarely seen amongst mere mortals. The album is also premiering all this week on Tim Timebomb’s show on Faction on Sirius Satellite radio with Adam, Toby, and Rusty talking about each song with Tim!
Let’s start off this companion blog to episode 72 with some awesome videos to show you what Adam and his music is all about.
H2o has a lot of great songs, and this one is quite possibly my all time favorite. Spotlight on Adam’s groovy basslines, Toby’s sincere lyrics, and star studded guest friend appearances by Lou Koller (Sick of It All) and Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio / Blink 182 ) and an absolutely brilliant intro by Michael Rappaport
WHAT HAPPENED? – MUSIC VIDEO
Here’s some footage I FILMED that we talk about in the episode. Imagine RANCID/H2o playing at a sold out Warfield in San Francisco.. Then imagine CM PUNK coming out to do guest vocals with the fellas, and ya boy KG captures the moment!
Another great song video is from the same Album as “What Happened” and it is fun, frantic, and packed with friends. The essence of hardcore and punk rock.
This song is an H20 Anthem. I chose this one because it’s on some random Tour date in Salt Lake City, but Travis Barker stops by to be guest drummer for a few songs.
The true attitude of REAL hardcore and punk rock is impossible to define or duplicate. But real recognize real. I get chills watching stuff like this:
NEW H2O Video for SKATE from the new #UseYourVoice Album Featuring Steve Caballero
Let’s close it out with the CM PUNK RIOT AT THE COW PALACE footage that I also filmed, that Adam and I discuss on the episode:
At the end of the day, I love H2o. I see them live whenever I can, and their music is a regular part of my life. They have always been friends to me and looked out for me, and I don’t forget that. #FTTW #MFLOFMLF #LYD #PMA
One of my favorite parts of the Kevin Gill Show, is trying to deliver you interesting, inspiring, and fun conversations from different perspectives and viewpoints in the world… The goal is always to make the conversation as interesting to a die hard fan, as it is to someone who has never/seen heard the creative output of the guest and the early feedback I’ve gotten is that this is the BEST episode of the Kevin Gill Show so far.
