A Convesation with Leo Mintek

My friend, Leo Mintek, guitarist from the band Outernational was kind enough to do an interview with me about the connection between music and social activism. I thought what better day that an election day to post something political.

I won't write much because Leo does a much better job than I could. I just want us to open our hearts and minds up to POSSIBILITY. Can we allow ourselves to HOPE than something better is possible.

A few bonus videos. Below is a video from the concept album Leo was talking about concerning the US-Mexico border. WE ARE ALL ILLEGALS/TODO SOMOS ILLEGALES.

Yes that is Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, The Nightwatchman) and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers in that video).

Another one from the album. THE BEGINNING IS HERE

By the way guys, Zoe says you have to pay our swear jar for the F-bomb in that song. Considering how many times we've heard it, I'll just front you $20.

Last video, just because it is SO AWESOME! Outernational playing "Sleep Now In The Fire" by Rage Against the Machine with Tom Morello!
