In today’s podcast we meet Scott Reeder, of Kyuss, Sound City: Real to Reel and Fireball Ministry fame.
Speaking to us on the run up to some packed live shows in support of a new Fireball Ministry album, bassist Scott Reeder tells us that life in the band is turning out to be something of a blast. In the grand tradition of the desert rock scene, his unique blend of giant riffs have taken him to international acclaim amid the hard-rock community. High points of his career are many, including making headway with Kyuss in 1994 with their esteemed album Welcome To Sky Valley, auditioning for Metallica following the departure of Jason Newsted and winning a Grammy Award for his contribution to the soundtrack of the Dave Grohl documentary Sound City.
In this episode you're going to learn:
All about the rise and fall of Kyuss.
What it was like recording at the legendary Sound City Studios.
Why he always plays barefoot.
Why Dave Grohl called him for the Sound City soundtrack.
As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…
… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
