Friday Musical Interlude – Toad the Wet Sprocket

Posted: Category: Life as I Know It No Comments

Formed in 1986 in Santa Barbabra California, Toad the Wet Sprocket and I have had a long and tumultuous relationship.  If I hear the song “All I Want” one more time I will stab myself in the eyeball with a large blunt object.  The catch is that it was that very song that made me buy the album “Fear” and then got me hooked on them.  They broke up in 1998 but have reunited for a few short tours, one of which was with the Counting Crows and I would have given my left nut to see that, with out the use of a large blunt object.

Glen Phillips continues to create amazing music both solo and with other musicians.  He recorded an album with Nickel Creek that was released in 2004 and still records with them now.
