One Question Interviews: Mad Caddies

Sascha (Mad Caddies)

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

Sascha: We don't really use the term “roadie.” That seems kinda like an ‘80s word. We use the term “crew.”

Obviously any crew member must do their job well. Besides that they must be easy to travel with and relatively drama-free especially when under the influence of illegal substances. 

Once I guitar-teched a show in Arizona for Manu Chao. My buddy is his tour manager and when I got to the show he asked me to help out. The job of guitar tech was between myself and the singer of a mariachi band who didn't actually know how to play or tune a guitar. I got the gig.

Good times...
