Strap your seat belt on for Episode 2! We have our first guest!!
I met Demian Arriaga 10 years ago on tour. He was a new percussion player. Percussion, not drums- please do not make that mistake. I have many times in the past and he always makes sure to correct me and give the drummer credit where credit is due. That’s just the kind of guy he is- a stand up human. I mean, honestly I have no idea why he even likes me. One thing on the road is that you become family for the 3 months or 6 months that you are touring together. But when tour ends, there about 2 people that you keep talking to. Demian is one of those. Over the years our paths have crossed and a year ago we ended up on the same tour again.
Demian currently is the drummer for Nick Jonas and has played with Iggy Azalea, Richie Kotzen, The Jonas Brothers, Victoria Justice, Cobra Starship, Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande. Come take a listen as we talk about his journey from Venezuela to Boston and beyond.
He may be a great stand up human but he can dish it out as well as he can take it. This could get interesting.
