In this brand new episode of Tin Foil Hats, I had the absolute honor of chatting with Gareth Icke, an incredible singer songwriter, author and the son of David Icke, who is know as one of the leading Conspiracy Analyst's in the world.
In this interview we talk about Gareth's experiences in the Music Industry and how you often have to choose between your morals and your goals, in the pursuit of fame and career. We talk about his dads work and how it was growing up knowing how the world functions, whislt persuing a career in an often morally corrupt music industry.
We also chat about touring with his band Kody, Drinking too much in your early twenties and how becoming a father himself has changed his view of the world. His book . "How Not To Be A Rock Star" is an incredibly well written and funny account of life on the road as a young man in a punk band, for anyone wanting to get into the music industry this is a cracking account of how it's done the old fashioned way, get in a van, grab some beers and hit the main land.
We also go on to talk about his dads work, what it was like being followed by reporters and photographers to school and the pressure of growing up with a famous father, and the need to achieve and find his own place in the world, not as Davids son but a person of talent and value in his own right.
Gareth music is beautifully written and recorded and his level of talent deserves to be heard and seen on a wider scale, here is the link to his BandCamp page
