My name is Todd Hunt. I've been around for a long time. I've managed to learn a few things over the years. I have toured professionally and played some big places and I have loaded up my car with 10,000 dollars worth of equipment to drive 350 miles to play some tiny hole in the wall dive in front of 3 people and make 12 dollars...to split between the band. I play guitar and mandolin. Some drums on the side and the bass, if needed. I could throw a stick out my window and hit 10 musicians that are better players than me, but I have better equipment. Ha-Ha! I don't have any communicable diseases and I am up-to-date on all my shots.
Besides an empty bank account? It sounds stupid because everybody says this but music is everything. Music can make problems disappear. Music soothes the savage beast.
I wanna jam with Brad Paisley.
Me. Michael Jackson said it best. Look in the mirror and change yourself. Start being thankful for what you do have and stop bitching about what you don't have and quit complaining.
Cats in The Cradle by Harry Chapin. I saw Harry Chapin live at Central Michigan University when I was just really little and I can still remember that show because he cursed like 10,000 times and I mean the really bad curse words.
Waylon Jennings, Van Halen, Brad Paisley, Buck Owens, Don Rich, Merle Haggard, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton
It was girls. Hey, every musician got started because girls love musicians. Now it's just having fun playing live. Creating something cool. Some nights you play and you are on top of your game. Other nights, you suck. That's cool.
Have fun in life. Life's too short to be grumpy.
Like Tom Brady winning another Superbowl.
Talent. American Idol and YouTube ruined music.
People that take us for granted and don't respect us. They want you to come play a gig and then say, we can't afford to pay you. I don't come to your restaurant and ask for a free meal. Have some respect. Pay the bands.
Yes. I try to check out all the local bands that I can when I'm not playing.
I'm playing in front of 6 people. I don't think I can honestly answer that.
Melissa Lee. She is a great new country singer. Awesome talent.
