About This Episode

In today’s podcast we chat to Rick Barrio Dill, bassist with Vintage Trouble.

Vintage Trouble have been busy wowing audiences right across the globe with their high-energy brand of 1960s-style rhythm and blues. The LA-based four-piece have opened for the Rolling Stones in London’s Hyde Park, toured North America and Europe with The Who, not to mention the likes of Bon Jovi, Queen’s Brian May, AC/DC, The Dave Matthews Band and Lenny Kravitz. They’re even signed with legendary rock 'n' roll manager Doc McGhee (who's helped guide the careers of bands like KISS, Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe, Guns N' Roses, Skid Row, and Hootie & The Blowfish).

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • All about Rick’s obsession with recording.
  • How he gets his killer bass sound.
  • How he’s dealt with the pressure of touring with bands like The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and The Who.
  • Why the band’s next record is their best yet.
  • And much, much more…
