This is definitely an episode you’re going to want to hold on to as Mark shares so much of his knowledge and experience in the music industry. He talks about his early days as a stage hand at shows, sensing his calling wasn’t the 9-5 after college and following his heart in the music industry, how he got hired into the infamous Belkin Productions of Cleveland and how much he learned their before Live Nation bought them out, becoming a tour manager for many bands over the years, especially working with Nine Inch Nails before and during their meteoric rise, his relationship with Trent Reznor and Richard Patrick today, why his liver couldn’t handle being on the road with Marilyn Manson, and his experience in Japan with The Smashing Pumpkins.

He also shares how he became “mates” with Steven Jones of The Sex Pistols, Crashing on Paul Cooks couch, surviving a major earthquake with Robin Finck and Danny Lohner, when he knew he needed to quit drinking and what recovery has done for him today, working with the Elevation Group on the Wonderstruck and Wonderbus Music Festivals, plus so much more.
