This week on The AVB Podcast, we have legendary Windsor Metal band Lodown. If your from Windsor and like metal music, the odds are that you have heard of Lodown or perhaps even 'praised' them. Lodown is one of Windsor's most well known musical acts that was very close to making the "big time", in their words, "...we just missed the money man..." This podcast brings the tale of a band that gave it their all and were defintely good enough to "make it", just entered the music scene at the wrong time; the time when the digital age starting taking over. Lodown consists of four members, Mike Edwards vocals, Dave Beacom guitars, Chris Martin-bass, and Steve Brough-drums.
If you do a 'google' search on them, you will still find remenants of the time they were just gaining momentum in the music industry. Quoting, "MapleMusic" they were "...riveting to watch..." and "... Lodown is a band leading the way towards a new horizon in rock and roll. Believe in this band, they might just be the most important rock band to come a long in quite some time..." WOW, is all that needs to be said here. Talk about being in the RIGHT place but at the wrong time.
This band truely has a riveting story to tell, and if you are on the up and up and trying to "make it" these guys have some advice for you! Edwards put it this way, "Thank God for the Music...the rest of it sucked!"
For those of you listening and not trying to "make it" this is still a pretty cool podcast to listen too, lots of insight and "rockstar" stories to tell. ENJOY!
