Today my guest is Ben Thatcher drummer of the band Royal Blood.
At the age of 10 years old this man was playing drums in a church band every week in front of 300 people. Soon after he discovered the Red Hot Chili Peppers record Blood Sugar Sex Magic and more specifically Chad Smiths funky grooves and it changed his life.
Ben started the 2 piece band Royal Blood with Mike Kerr and quickly went in and did some demos that found there way onto Soundcloud where Warner Brothers records discovered them and signed them to a record deal.
With 3 records out and a new single right now called Honeybrains this band is just getting bigger and better.
Right now they are on a UK Arena tour and are about to start a US tour April 19th 2022 in Detroit.
Make sure you go back and listen their 2021 record Typhoons. I highly recommend it.
