Brian Nevin

064 – Brian Nevin (Big Head Todd and the Monsters)

In this podcast I head the pleasure of of interviewing Brian Nevin from Big Head Todd and the Monsters.  This interview was really special for me since I’ve been listening to BHTM for years.  Listen in as Brian talks about everything form the formation of the band and the success that they’ve had to his love for Elvin Jones and all sorts of other things.

“No man can be ideally successful until he has found his place. Like a locomotive he is strong on the track, but weak anywhere else.” – Orison Swett Marden

In this interview you’ll hear Brin Nevin talk about:

  • How he got started with drumming
  • The formation of Big Head Todd and the Monsters
  • His love for Jazz music
  • Brian’s view of the music business then and now
  • Tips for the DIY musician

    Great interview! Nice to hear Brian’s influences and interests. Love his take on creative interactions with BHTM and his self-effacing bow to his bandmates. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t know a rudiment from a rutabaga. Music is a celebration! Put it out there: Your garage band is a business. Nobody is going to knock your door down to GIVE you a career, make it your job.

      Kat, thanks for the comment! Glad to hear that you liked the interview and I totally agree that Brian’s humility and “work for it” mentality is awesome. Thanks so much for listening!
