What do Meat Puppets, Gin Blossoms, George Lynch, Soulfly, Flotsam And Jetsam, Megadeth, Jimmy Eat World, The Refreshments, and Local H have in common? These are some of the storied music acts to emerge from Phoenix through the years; Phoenix rock band HEADROOM is on a mission to interview each and every one of them for a documentary about the enduring Phoenix music scene to be released before year’s end. Also being interviewed are numerous area club owners and bookers, as well as Phoenix Music Awards founder, Al Bowman.
“Phoenix has produced a lot of solid music talent through the years, but it’s generally overshadowed by L.A. or Seattle, so we decided to tell the story about the music scene here – to remember the past and spotlight the future the best way possible – in the words of the musicians themselves,” explains HEADROOM drummer, Gavin Washburn. Adds guitarist Dan Buitron, “the project is full steam ahead…a lot of people we have interviewed thus far are excited!”
