RAY "ROCKET" CARLISLE
Ray "Rocket" Carlisle of Teenage Bottlerocket takes a moment while mixing “Stealing The Covers”, their brand new cover LP out on Fat Wreck THIS week, to tell about practicing in his friends basement in Laramie, WY and playing house shows, and playing Gilman St. for the first time. Moving up the chain and opening for national touring bands in the ever changing local scene. How fast Teenage Bottlerocket took off in Laramie. The importance in feedback from bands you open for. Conquering San Francisco for the very first time. The story of Milo, the 9 year old Prom King of the Vans Warped Tour 2016. Returning to Fat Wreck after all this time. The Battle of the Bands not going the way you hoped it would and no matter how bad they always are, some towns you just have to play. Also, sometimes it’s easier to let people think you are from Miami.
