Man, it's been 25 years since the debut Candlebox album! Kevin tells me all about the early days of grunge after he moved to Seattle in the mid-80's and then becoming a part of the scene. He talks about seeing Chris Cornell as a young kid and his death, being friends with Layne Staley, and more about the music scene in the North-West. He talks about touring with one of his favorite bands, Rush. They gave Candlebox some advice, which they used for a long time. Kevin tells me about great tours and pretty much talks all about the 25 years of Candlebox. I also asked him about his keys to success and what drives him. He gave me a different answer than some in the past, but a very good answer that is well thought out.
Candlebox is at Saint Andrews in downtown Detroit this Friday night. It's a great conversation and I think you'll really like it.
