One Question Interviews: Bouncing Souls

Greg Attonito (Bouncing Souls)

SPB: What makes a good roadie? Have you ever done it?

Attonito: A good roadie cares about the band and making the show go as smoothly as possible. It’s always best when the roadies and band guys enjoying hanging out because 90% of the time you spend on tour is together. If we are all creating a good time together while traveling and working the good time translates effortlessly to the stage performance.

Bryan and I once roadied for a musician named Robert Gordon. This was back in '89 or '90, I think. He is a rockabilly/punk singer who started in the ‘60s and had some fame in the ‘70s and ‘80s. We picked up him and his band in NYC, then took one of them to score some coke somewhere in the Lower East Side. I think they were saying their guitarist played on some Sex Pistols records but I'm not sure about that?? On our way up to the gig in New Haven, CT the wipers in my van stopped working and it was raining pretty hard. Some of the guys in the back were doing coke and kinda freaking out because it was so hard to see. It was a wild ride but we made the gig. We definitely didn't get paid enough.
