145 – Vintage Trouble’s Richard Danielson: The Purist

In this podcast I talk to Richard Danielson, drummer for the up and coming rhythm and blues band, Vintage Trouble who have toured with AC/DC, The Who and many others.

Danielson, a purist when it comes to groove and sound, is a force to be reckoned with as the driving force behind the powerful group. With his simple, yet profound, feel Danielson stays authentic to the sounds of yesteryears while maintaining a current, hip vibe that’s almost unable to be classified. Undoubtedly a live band, Danielson and Vintage Trouble are coming to a town near you soon and they’re going to roll though like  a freight train…best get your tickets now.
