Episode 11 Show Notes:
- Want a glimpse of Sigler Fest? Peep the official video for Evan Diamond & the Library's "Bad Guy" -- no, that's not a Billie Eilish cover -- compiled from footage filmed by audience members at 2018's event.
- Sigler mentioned that he originally started playing bass when he saw the video for "Addicted to That Rush" by Mr. Big. Here's the video all its '80s hair-metal glory.
- A or B Side was quite the revelation this week: Who knew Roger Waters recorded nearly the entirety of Pink Floyd's "The Final Cut" on his own? Here's a good article about it by Kurt Loder for Rolling Stone.
- Are you as flabbergasted as we were upon learning that Lemmy Kilmister was a roadie for Jimi Hendrix? Here's an interview with the Motörhead frontman himself detailing the experience.
- This episode's Spotlight artist of the week is, of course, Evan Diamond & the Library. Head over to EvanDiamondMusic.com to buy some music, be sure to follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter — and catch 'em at a show when bands are playing in venues again.
