NAME: Brian Rodgers

BAND(S) YOU ARE IN: The Moving Front

PLAY ANY INSTRUMENTS? DO TELL: guitar, bass, and piano equally bad

DESCRIBE YOUR MUSICAL STYLE: diverse

HOW’D YOU GET STARTED PLAYING MUSIC? Grew up with it in my family, but got more into when moving to LR in 1990 and meeting so many great musicians

FAVORITE LOCAL MUSICIAN BESIDES YOURSELF (AND WHY): Lenny Bryan – he pretty much sets the bar in LR in my mind.

WHAT’S IN YOUR POCKET RIGHT NOW? Blackberry

YOUR FAVORITE VENUE IN LITTLE ROCK (AND WHY)? White Water Tavern – just the chill, anything goes feel.

TELL ME ABOUT THE FIRST “REAL” CONCERT YOU EVER ATTENDED: I think Don Williams with my parents was first, but a trip to see KISS shortly after set the wheels in motion.

HOW ABOUT THE FIRST SHOW YOU EVER DID YOURSELF?: I’m sure it was horrible. Actually, we were smart enough to bring in the early 90’s LR guitar god Jerry Craven to cover up the rest of the bands downfalls.

BEST SOURCE FOR MUSICAL INFO? (MAG, WEBSITE, ETC): I kind of get it from everywhere. I play in a band with a couple of walking music encyclopedias so that helps.

WHAT DOES THIS TOWN NEED?: COLLEGE RADIO !!! and maybe a water slide.

YOUR THREE FAVORITE ALBUMS, ALL-TIME:

The Clash – London Calling  

The Replacements – All for Nothing, Nothing for All (I know it’s a best of comp but hey you gotta get while you can when you only get 3 choices)

The Jam – The Sound of the Jam (another greatest hits album but I only get 3 choices)

 

Note: All of these answers will change tomorrow

RE YOUR MUSIC: DOES YOUR MOM LIKE IT OR NOT? nah

FUNNIEST THING THAT’S EVER HAPPENED AT ONE OF YOUR SHOWS: In Atlanta shortly after Jeremy tore his ACL, we had a show and he was on a cane which he swung kind of like a golf club during a song and it happened to hit a crush beer can as he swung it which then took off like a rocket and hit a girl in the face that was actually bringing us drinks to the stage. I guess that wasn’t that funny now that I think about it.

 

AS A KID, WHAT’D YOU WANT TO GROW UP TO BE?: Either a pro skateboarder or a rock star

MUSICAL/LIFE ADVICE YOU’D GIVE TO MY 13 YEAR OLD GUITAR FIEND SON? Play all the time and talk to people that are playing the kind of music you like and get them to turn you onto stuff they listen to so as not to waste you time sorting thru all of the shiite
