Phil Labonte of All That Remains on Playing in Bad Weather [VIDEO]
I had the most amazing conversation with Phil Labonte on his band All That Remains backstage at the Big Purple Party. I am fascinated by the band's incredible use of acoustic and electric guitars and their ability to embrace both the soft and the heavy, the light and the dark.
Phil was stunned and honored at my comparison to Led Zeppelin and talked about how it was really about using all of the textures available to them, rather than setting out to just be heavy.
Unfortunately, some of that footage ended up being unusable due to technical difficulties. However, I did get to talk to Phil about dodging the recent storms while they were on the road. He's just a passionate guy who has gotten a beatdown or two (in the media) by being misquoted.
So, here's a minute or so of my and Phil shooting the breeze about the weather.
