#254 Today’s Boondoggle digging in with Stephen Richards of Taproot


In this episode Bill talks with Stephen Richards of the band Taproot. We talk about skipping school to play drums, having Howard Stern as a radio surrogate Dad, their early tour with Papa Roach which led to him starting a riot in their hometown and being banned from the local concert venue, showing back at said venue in his wedding garb with his new bride, how this latest album SC\SSRS has been in the works since 2012, and how much work he put in to write, record, and produce this album. We also talk about why now is the right time for Taproot to get back out on the road for the fans, playing the Blue Ridge Rock Festival, working with Elias of Nonpoint on the single “Favorite Song”, parent teacher conferences, school bullies, bad dad jokes, family life, plus so much more.
