No. 80 - Adam Fallik
This episode is a re-release of an interview that I did with a great friend, Adam Fallik. Adam passed away in his sleep on Tuesday morning, the 2nd of November, 2021. Adam was a Son, A Brother, an Uncle, a partner, a teacher, a friend, a drummer, and so much more. He was an epic human with a heart big enough to fit everyone in, and then some. I travelled back to Fort Collins, Colorado to be there for everything throughout this last week. There was community, celebration, mourning, sadness, comfort, love and so much more. Adam loved people, and people loved him, which you could clearly see as his procession through Old Town Fort Collins made noise, made music, and howled it's way from place to place.
Adam was my first interview on this podcast, Episode 1, way back in January of 2020. I thought I'd re-release his interview, and then add on this interview with his band Wasteland Hop from this summer. Wasteland played a show with the Flobots and The Burroughs at the Mishawaka Amphitheater July 3rd, 2021. After soundcheck and before the show we recorded this little interview on the road next to our camp on the Poudre river. The recording isn't perfect, the voices are a little quiet, you can hear the river (Which is pretty cool actually), there's some other background noise, and a little interruption. Se la vie. This interview clip is a nice little snapshot of what it was like being with the whole band as a group on tour or before a show, and this is one main ways I got to know Adam so well. Adam loved playing music as the drummer with the band. You can feel it here in this interview.
As a side note, we are raising money to help make this as easy as possible for Adam's girlfriend through this experience. If you'd like to donate, please visit https://givebutter.com/DBMSIQ?fbclid=IwAR3sGuJ-uANuLTQj8jv_3UMbJpRn37FATxTa1sGVzz7q5vFFRQpmt4pl0jU
