E101 – We had the honor of interviewing esteemed jazz, rock, and R&B drummer Steve Ferrone. You have definitely heard his work – just look at this bio below. In this recording, he gets candid about love, family, dalliances, the rock and roll lifestyle, and explains some life changes he has made for the better. We learn about the mods and rockers of Brighton Beach in the 60’s and how Steve’s first blues band opened for The Who. Steve and Julianne talk shop regarding syncopation and style – Pretty Purdie, Steve Gadd, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. When asked about nerves, traveling, and groupies, we heard some funny, surprising stories! Duran Duran played a big role during Stephen’s busiest year, when he also played with George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and was in the Saturday Night Live band. We figured out the connection between Questlove and Average White Band. And Julianne’s Unchained questions inspire a great Johnny Cash impression! Find out which soap opera Steve was in, which musicians and moments rendered him star-struck, including recalling what it was like to record at Abbey Road. We also hear the amazing story of Prince performing George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” during his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers wrote in some questions, so we find out about a reunion, conflict, grief, what life was really like in the band, and insight into the person that Tom Petty was.

Leave mine with my life and and then there was the then came to light in nine years off of that that there was a child that was in between those two was a woman a dalliance. Let's decide daddy and at and then and that came with the lawsuit and then I continued to keep digging in just two i. It was funny. Because i i can say is talking to two women who probably have an opinion about about about that kind of highly but my my concept at the time was the i didn't get pregnant. They go and that was something that was the sole pat. I had to change you know because it was you know i. I guess he's going to grow up with you. Know grew up in fifties and there was a lot of different thinking in arizona who it was a. You know it's been. It's been quite interesting. What it stopped me doing was he stopped me drinking there you go. I decided to things in your life. When was that what year stock in nineteen thirty nine thousand nine hundred twenty a nail for twenty seven. That's amazing is it's it's funny because it's very is people. You hit a lot of people. Say that allows the so sub. Drinking and for some of us is harder than others and we have to get help. I went and got health nut. Continue today. And i'm really grateful. The older older guys can help me go share. Do you think i've heard that when you stop drinking. That's where you stop your emotional growth and then you kind of so if you started at fifteen years old. You're kinda starting there. do you believe that. Yeah exactly Is i would say yes. I would say that that's true it for some people you know. It's funny because like some people they go in and they have a they have davidge ring continuing. You know what i don't understand. People saying the album blessed with now. Stop the failure of okay. Start in the field. That was the beginning. I for more than a week later. Come to yeah well. It must have been so hard in the music business. With all these seventies sixties rockers. And that's the scene that's new. Well fortunately yes. I mean when i first started a laying it was. He didn't trust anybody. You didn't was a potty went to the eighties with all the cocaine you went through use. This drank all night right. Yeah that's crazy. That was that was that was that was. The cocaine wasn't cocaine. Allowed me to drink. I mean always. What's that started to travel but sleeping sloppy writing the cocaine bucky right up and keep doing some says. He's out there thinking i should. China is the good news. If you do you're gonna come crashing down five. Yeah so so yes. Take it from that. Yeah i mean you know to me for me. would i found out about it. Pelota guys if i signed problem is you know.

I had to get used to it but sometimes sometimes it shouldn't get married didn't have any of that but it just was to hear.

Get better as you get as beloved campbell start. Well yeah that's a spot of it. Go back and clean up the okay from it. Takes time like.

I was at and that is the quality of the sounded between those two those two things that the guitar sandwich especially in is is is is is might both performances for different young then and then and then then then i realized that it was written by some some glues heard listen to that and there was a whole different thing. They did a great job of of arrangement. They didn't do a good job at giving credit. Though that was new problem was more than managing. Sir okay so. I heard something interesting about john bonham. Who's like you know top drummer in the world. But he was saying that or people who analyze them said that he would go off. Jimmy page's guitar. He would follow the guitarist as the lead. Where a lot of drummers follow basis or they they sync up with bases no before jovan dumbest jealous. Listen to butch the good dramas. Listen everybody jason bonham's nixon this.

You can count them. I mean this. This looks great guy klay flights now. Did you ever get intimidated by. People are were you just there to learn absorb and be appear. It's awesome was it. Intimidating following in the footsteps of other jumpers that had left bands or no never good. Yeah the is funny at a friend of mine is a teacher in your principal schooling in in new york after a presentation. He's trying to bring mindfulness sensibility. Will city system we had to go and speaking of crete and then he was very nervous about doing me up because he knows that. I'm used to being a little so i said to him. I said well you know you stop right nieces. But yeah i said well. I said in if anybody if anybody in order to new more than you they'd be on the stage so continue via right so just go to your thing. That's great equally back after this way. Great you'll be doing before. That beats out the idea of imagining everybody in under which is the same door. You don't want to sit in this budget. We've been doing that before you got on. We were talking. And i think i think i think there's a degree of humility be had but but but but he ate a discount to things. So it's you have a big ego. Is this a undergo here in front of all these people and just do my thing. When i was at school. I used to get notice lobby and then after i needed like a show to why novus baker play baby alien. And you know it's not really not really in a competition just expressed in your is.

What do you call it. What do you call the guy that inventory with musicians drummer. Keep drummer because they have to have somebody who can remember what to play after. They counted up to four. It's true you really earned. And if he does get that the drama usually counts off the band. Does one two three four guitars ago. That one two one two three four hold on. What are we doing warren.

Petty and break it. Was tom petty in the hallway is seems an intangible integral. It wasn't just that we were backing band. The batteries yeah so although he was he was definitely the most definitely the front. I definitely the driving force in the book. He was powered up that he was having fun.


01:00:03 - 01:05:03

He was having as much fun in with us was being but it wasn't just announce that doesn't mean he was in the back so it was a an incredible leader. He knew exactly what he wanted his phone and got loyalty and love of everybody around him. Not just abandon all the way down to the crew truck drivers bus drivers anything from come wealth rare that you hear that about a musician that kind of respect and what absolutely what was that about him.

Yeah heard he kept his ticket prices low for the fans like he was very thoughtful and any also it was also very because we would only do three weeks out on the road.

Joe biden in his first acceptance speech When he got elected he used a coldplay song. I'm a big coldplay fan. Do you know the guy in coldplay. Do you know the dumber will champion that. Was it tries to work coldplay in every interview. We do it someday. She's gonna find someone who knows these. Well i singer there from england and yeah yes. There was a big stand up routine about being the drummer in coldplay. The fact is he's insanely popular. Their music is all over the world. But he's the drummer. So he's kind of got the superhero power where he can go anywhere and do anything he wants. he's not necessarily recognized. Yeah and so he actually have to do all the interviews. Yeah just playing youtube click. Yeah he snuck. He snuck himself into an episode of the game of thrones and he was the drummer during the red wedding scene. For the for the wedding and people didn't know who was. They thought he was an extra. So then. i wondered if you've ever been in tv shows. Have you been able to be kind of stealth and enjoy the luxury of being famous drummer. Not the front person was a was in the as the ball tons one. Oh steve can you cry on cue. I was in a wedding band. Report chafer morally absolute and we played something like a tiny love sexual sexual healing. We played it was just ridiculous. What we've laid this wedding.
