My guest in this episode is Patrick Ferguson, a professional musician who has played drums for Vic Chesnutt, Mike Mills (REM), Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers, Rolling Stones), the Psychedelic Furs, Athens GA’s Five Eight, Pinky Doodle Poodle from Tokyo, Japan, and a hundred other bands.
Patrick’s podcast, Crash and Ride, is a long-form interview show where he talks to musicians who have survived anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, and any other form of mental illness or mental distress.
He began his podcast in March of 2019 and has published weekly since then, with a brief break when he lost his mind during the first month or so of the Covid-19 crisis. He is based out of Athens, GA, and constantly on tour when not dealing with a pandemic.
In this episode he shares his story and how he helps other musicians through his podcast.
I want to let you know ahead of time the audio cuts in and out at times but my editor Laura did a great job of engineering this episode.
