Sometimes in life you need a bit of luck and sometimes you just need to be at the right place at the right time. While waiting tables out in LA, Berkley School of Music alum, Tony Beliveau had come encountered famed music producer and singer Linda Perry, she asked if he was in a band and the rest was history. The truth was, Tony was just a musician kicking around LA until this encounter, he called his brother and they rounded up a friend and formed Crash Kings. Since this encounter Tony has been on high demand in the music industry, being hand picked by Chris Cornell to appear on Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and Crash Kings have gone out to sell out shows across the country and get much more attention while they are out on the road. I had the opportunity to speak to Tony about the band's formation, being an unconventional rock and roll band (it is just bass, piano and drums), recording, touring and he shares some great wisdom and insight into the music industry. Take a listen to Tony in one of my favorite interviews.
