It's The What Podcast High five, which means Barry, up top, buddy. High five, man. All right. So, a quick little clip from a what podcast from the past. I always like when our guys, our people, tell the story of how they went to Bonnaroo before they actually played Bonnaroo. Those stories are always my favorite. This might be my favorite of those. Yeah, I agree. This was so funny. It was early on in our show, right? I mean, it was first year. If you remember, and I know you do, we had so much fun with Paul Janoway from St. Paul and the Broken Bones that we made two episodes. Yeah. Our first double. It was our first double episode. I just love hearing how much the artists that play Bonnaroo loved Bonnaroo before they ever got on stage, right? The just joy that comes out of his voice when he's telling the story of walking around being the, what was he, parking cars? Security. Yeah, and he's walking around loving this festival and saying to himself, all I want to do is play this festival one day. And Andy actually, and he talks about it in this clip. He says, I can sing as well as those guys. Yeah, that was huge. Just, yeah, you don't say Paul. Yeah, you don't say. That's really cool to hear him talk about that. It changed his life. Yeah. And honestly, this interview was one of those interviews that changed the course of the podcast really, because it gave us this, it buoyed us to talk to more artists and be a little light and fun. And boy, this story, I tell this story all the time. I love this story so much. It's one of my all time favorites. Yeah, you're exactly right. When it happened, I think we both said that was, I think you and I both, when we hung up with him said, that's one of the best interviews I've ever done in my life. Yeah. Well, let's get to it. Yeah. What podcast high five Paul Jane away from St. Paul and the broken bones, telling a story about his first ever Bonnaroo. We also talked at Bonnaroo. You told me a great story, which is one of the reasons we wanted to talk to you. You actually worked Bonnaroo, right? Didn't you volunteer? I did. I volunteered. I was, I had actually, the first time I went slept in my car. I'd spent, I'd spent, I was working at a tanning bed. What? I'm the most untanned person I'm planning. You're like a freshly peeled apple. Yeah. I, you know, I think Radiohead was playing. It was the first year Radiohead played. And I was working at a tanning bed because I didn't have a car. So I had to drive, I had to walk through. It was the closest thing to go walk through. And so I spent my whole month's paycheck on a Bonnaroo ticket to go see Radiohead. And I was, and I slept in my car and it was, that was terrible. So the year that Jay-Z and Stevie Wonder played. God, that was my favorite year of Bonnaroo history. Yeah. I couldn't afford a ticket. And you know, the whole, the whole thing that they dangle is like, Hey, you can work security. Yeah. We'll pay you like minimum wage, but guess what? You do a 12 hour shift and then you get 12 hours off. And you're like, this sounds amazing. This is an amazing deal. It's not an amazing deal. That 12 hours off is pretty good. The 12, sure. So when I got sun poisoned on Thursday on my leg, I was just like, this is awful. So what is funny though, I was like, so the first night I was so tired, I was like, I can't go see it. But Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z were playing and I was like, I was like, all right, I'm going to go. I gotta go see that. So I just see you wonder, he gets off, Jay-Z is about to go on. I'm trying to get close and I feel something warm running down my back and I turn around and there is a giant man who was on some sort of drugs, peeing on my back. Oh my God. I am not kidding. I am not kidding. And I turn around and I just, I was like, what's going on right now? And by the, like, what has my life come to? And then I turned back around and the guy's already like shot out. And I was like, you know what? I've got sun poison. This is awful. I watched Jay-Z with pee on my back and that's what I did. The delicate touch of Paul Janeway when a man is peeing on him, he turns around and he says, Hey, so what's going on here? Yeah. He was a giant. What was I going to do? What was your post? What did you actually have to do at Bonner? What was your job? I was there. There was like a VIP or the VIP, like I was at the door or at the gate, the gate and it was right. And so there was two things I had to do, you know, check credentials and then also, um, also make sure that hippies did not stay in the road because there was trucks going, you know, 40 miles an hour back there. And so people just like, man, just chill out. And I'm like, you're going to die. You're getting out of the road. That was right around the same year the guy got hit by the porta potty cleanup truck, wasn't it? That's my point. And so, and so what was so magical for me, I even get like kind of emotional thinking about it because doing that and Bonnery being so close to Birmingham and me, you know what I mean? Like spending all my money on a Bonnery ticket and then in 2014 getting to play it, it was honestly like I, I, there are a few points in my life or professionally in this that I vividly remember and that's one of them because it was just, it felt like a dream. It felt like I can't, I remember being a patron and sitting and going, I think I sing better than they do. Then having a moment and then being on stage. I just tried to soak it in all day. Thank you so much Barney Rood. We are St. Paul and the Broken Bones from Birmingham, Alabama. What podcast? High five Paul Jane with St. Paul and the Broken Bones. Next week, another high five from Paul Jane away. This interview that you can go back and listen to the full thing is available on the whatpodcast.com. But next week is a story that, you know, when they get big and they blow up and they don't really know that it's their time and it's their moment, that's next week with Paul Jane away. There's so much in this interview that we could have pulled, but we like these clips in particular. Yeah, absolutely. And you can also hear it on the the Consequence Network where we are, you can find all of our podcasts, but just definitely go back and listen to this. Both of these, it's like we said, it's two episodes and it's a lot of fun. It is so much fun. And he, I think that the great thing about Paul is that he feels as though a dude that you could literally do this all day with. He has got stories and he loves music so much. He loves these artists so much. We could, I mean, I just want to hang out with him. You know, I just sort of like, wait, we have to go? Yeah, don't hang out. He's also that guy that every single person who sees the band for the first time says, this guy sings the blues? Do what? What? There is something about St. Paul that the first show is always the one that makes your head turn, right? Yeah. That comes out of that mouth. That's right. He looks like that. He said, it looks like my accountant, right? Or the guy who works for my account. He's not even the accountant. Yeah. All right. So next week, another high five with Paul Janeway. Until then, love you. Bye.
