Singer Greg Mangus joins Chris and Aaron this week to discuss his "almost famous" career in music; one that includes numerous collaborations with notable musicians across multiple genres. Greg is well-known in Nashville music circles for a number of projects that include Thee Rock N Roll Residency, St. James Infirmary, Noise Pollution (AC/DC tribute), and Jimmy the Weed (Thin Lizzy tribute).
In this hour-plus talk, Greg shares some fantastic stories of his early days in the burgeoning Florida rock scene in the 1980's, a string of co-writes with R&B group Cameo, his move to New York city upon which he received a solo artist contract from Polygram Records (and the fallout that occurred thereafter), a left-turn away from rock with a boogie-swing band Set Em Up Joe, and ultimately the move to Nashville and a journey back into rock music. That journey would take him to Thee Rock N Roll Residency and, later, an onstage jam with Cheap Trick's Robin Zander and his endorsement of Greg to be the next singer for AC/DC. In this discussion, Greg shares his memory of what took place after that endorsement and how the door may not be closed on that situation. It's a fun talk filled with lots of great stories. We hope you enjoy Conversation with Greg Mangus and SHARE with a friend!
