Contributor’s Note: Episode 23 of The Don’s Hit List Podcast is now available with my interview with the legendary Craig Wedren of Shudder To Think fame. Craig and I have a great conversation and also featured goosebump moments from tracks in the albums “Funeral At The Movies”, “Get Your Goat”, “Pony Express Record”, “50,000 BC” as well as solo work in “Wand” and “Adult Desire”
Craig goes into how being part of an experimental theater group at New York University played an important part in the creation of the music of Shudder To Think’s Dischord Records albums. He shares his thoughts on the lyrics and on revisiting them after all of these years.
We also discuss about his work in TV and Movies. We also discuss how he found his found through a great vocal teacher at NYU in Lisa Sokolov.
During the discussion regarding two songs in 50,000 BC, Craig talks about the health issue that almost ended his music career and his life. Those that are battling a serious illness or have a loved one, will find inspiration into going for it all when you realize it could be all gone tomorrow.
