Hey Gang! Brent Porche here. I had the pleasure of speaking with Chris Barron, lead singer, of The Spin Doctors ahead of his show at City Winery Philadelphia on 8/24. We talk about the 30th anniversary of their multi-platinum debut “Pocket Full of Kryptonite” (released August 20th 1991), the filming of the music video for their smash hit Two Princes.. and the whereabouts of that infamous knit hat! We chat about the early days of the Spin Doctors/Trucking Company and rooming with John Popper & Blues Traveler in NYC. We also touch on the Spin Doctors opening for the Rolling Stones on the Voodoo Lounge tour & Sir Keef’s “guitar guy”. Also, what it was like having their debut album released the week before Pearl Jams’s debut, Ten, while on the same record label. And one of my favorites from the chat, among many, was Chris’ story about the first time he met Pierre Robert!
Chris Barron will be performing live at the City Winery in Philadelphia on Tuesday August 24th 2021 – with special guests Michael Glabicki from Rusted Root w/ Dirk Miller. Featuring a special opening set from Danny Beissel from Featherborn/Fosterchild. Show time is 8pm.
