Mike gives us some insight on his former and Whiskey High, current bands skell and Dimwit. He told us about life within the band since the passing of their drummer Keith Kweder and the EP that they plan on releasing at Kwederfest that features Keith on drums called, Everything is Fine.
We talked about how After the Fall wrote a song dedicated to Keith and loss, as well as their taking the lead on creating and running Kwederfest to keep Keith in our memories. He also talked about the loss of Terry McCoy from Bled Zeppelin.
He gave us some inside information on Pat “Bones” Bono’s haitus from music, and about Pat’s exit from skell and how much of an amazing effort he had put in for the band.
Mike also announces that the original skell drummer, Richie Palone, will be playing for Kwederfest, one time only. Keith’s dad’s band will also be playing that night.
