In Europe and Asia with House of Pain for the summer
I just got hired on as musical director of the seminal hiphop outfit House of Pain for their 20th anniversary world tour to celebrate the release of the undisputed heavyweight champion hiphop anthem "Jump Around." I get to arrange the hit records and work with some of my favorite instrumentalists on the planet (Joel Whitley on bass/guitar an Felix D-Kat Pollard on dums), hire the auxiliary musicians, and am totally thrilled with this gig. I remember pumping "Shit-Kickers" in my buddy's red Honda Prelude in high school like it was yesterday, and now I get to share the stage with them. Amazing.
