Everything Detroit – Fueled By Celsius Essential Energy Drinks

Everything Detroit – Fueled By Celsius Essential Energy Drinks

Steve Richards from Taproot was kind enough to join me to talk to all things Taproot.

I opened up the conversation by asking him what it’s been like to be back out on tour with the band. “It’s been really cool” Steve replied. He explained how their tour isn’t a grueling grind, but one where they meet up on weekends. He also spoke to touring with new music under his belt. He’s known these songs for years, but he had to teach them to the other guys. “Playing the new songs is really cool, because it’s something I never planned on.”

He also told me about shooting the video for “Favuorite Song” at the Buffalo Bill house, which you can see below. He explained how they decided to shoot it there.

“Not so much. At this point it’s me literally trying to remember words” was his response to the question about how much pressure is on him, being the creative force, spokesperson and face of the band. “I don’t feel too much pressure. I love being out there.”

As far as touring is concerned, Steve now has a family that he gets to see and take to some shows.

He told me about guesting on a song for someone that he’s working on now. “I’ve got some really cool harmonies. The topic is really dark and creepy” He said he really likes working on other stuff for people.

Of course, I couldn’t let him go without asking his thoughts on Patrick Kane playing for the Detroit Red Wings. We’re big hockey fans, so this is close to our hearts.

Steve and the guys are great people! Really looking forward to seeing them again this weekend at District 142 in Wyandotte, Michigan. Check out our interview below, along with other Taproot stories I’ve done this year.

    The topic of Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit came up. I didn’t want to get into it too much because we’ve talked about it before.
