    Matt Skiba of Blink-182 and Alkaline Trio was on a recent episode of The Truth Barrel podcast:

    Grammy-nominated guitarist and vocalist for Blink-182 and Alkaline Trio, Matt Skiba, joins Neil and Gabby in The Truth Barrel to discuss his career, his relationships, and the life philosophy that has led to his success. It’s not what you’d expect. In this powerful interview, he discusses facing the disappointment of his father when he decided to become a musician, the exact moment he quit drugs and alcohol, the surprising reason he asked a bandmate to leave the group, and what it was like to take over as frontman for one of the biggest bands of its genre. Along the way, you’ll learn Matt’s secret for staying positive, connected, and powerful – and the difference between a nice person and a good person. Hint: A good person isn’t always nice.

    It’s a really interesting episode. Recommended.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Gonna check this out now, I still think A3's last record was their best in years.

    EDIT: Wow, he says a lot. Had no idea about his parents, or the ex A3 drummer stuff, wow.

    That Neil Strauss guy sounds so annoying. I hated all the forced interpretations and faux-psychotherapy.
