Danimals Planet Podcast

A few months ago we traveled to New Zealand and had the pleasure of playing 3 PACKED TO THE BRIM shows in Gibbston, Taupo & Whitianga with the awesome bands Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Anastacia, George Thorogood & The Destroyers and Billy Idol!

One of the main dudes we clicked with RIGHT away was my new friend Dan Mcguinness (Lead singer and guitarist for CCR).
The dude is H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S!!! πŸ˜€

Anyway, when he asked me to be on his podcast (which was really us just chatting and having fun), I said HELL YEAH! πŸ™‚

So, here is our conversation about:
* My weekend in Texas
* Being a Carnivore
* Smash Mouth (and it’s awesome members)
* Enrique Iglesias (and his awesome band)
* What your job really is in big productions like Enrique Iglesias and Smash
Mouth.
* What do you do in Brazil & Uruguay when the airlines lose your luggage
etc etc etc.

Enjoy πŸ™‚
