The waiting is often the hardest part, it is also a consistent part of conducting interviews. But when the waiting was over I got to sit down with Vernon Reid of Living Colour, who is alway a great person to converse with. I was then able to talk shop with Spencer Charnas from Ice Nine Kills, Joe Hottenger from Halestorm and Ben Wells of Black Stone Cherry.
At 5 O’clock ship time (central time) I was at the bar and settled in to make some noise for the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Out in the ocean the TV feed is a satellite link with all filler promos and NO commercials which is a bit weird.
After the game and the result I had been hoping for I was able to finally take in a concert as Beartooth hit the theater stage and I did catch a few songs from Shvpes on deck 5.
Day #2 is concluded and I’m ready to take in some of Key West on day #3.
