Hey, so this is one of my favorite photoshoots of Butch, just thought I’d share.
I was out of town this weekend and missed it, but I heard that the last live jockeyed song on Dave FM was ‘ATL’. Which broke my heart and I found entirely appropriate all at once.
RIP Dave FM. You were a great station that deserved a better fate. Without you, Atlanta has become a rock radio wasteland.
Music Lessons From Butch Walker
Producer and singer/songwriter Butch Walker was among the participants at the recent GRAMMY GPS: A Road Map For Today’s Music Pro hosted by The Recording Academy Atlanta Chapter. During the event, Walker participated in an exclusive interview with GRAMMY.com, discussing the influence of the stage of Georgia on his music, his recording process and his book Drinking With Strangers: Music Lessons From A Teenage Bullet Belt, among other topics.
“Robert Hitt: Drums
Tyler Rann: Guitar/Vocals

Heath Saraceno: Guitar/Vocals
FORGET WHAT YOU KNOW WAS:
Produced by Butch Walker
Engineered and Mixed by Russ T and Butch Walker
Recorded over a three week period, as two-thousand four was quickly approaching, at Ruby Red Studios in Midtown, Atlanta.
Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound, New York, NY
B Diddy played a little piano
G Saporta dabbled with programming
B Diddy also sang a little, when he was good
R Hitt checked his email and sang too”
B Diddy with Midtown during the recording of this record:
B. Diddy also used to punch Gabe while recording this because Gabe was being an obnoxious fucker.
No really. It’s in Drinking With Strangers.
This still cracks me up.
In late 2006, Michael had fucked up his left index finger and needed five stitches in the tip…. because of a box cutter mishap…..
Figure 1(from his myspace):
So, right after that was when Butch Walker & the Let’s-Go-Out-Tonites did a string of in-store performances, including this one.
This particular video is “Hot Girls In Good Moods” and “Ladies and Gentlemen… The Let’s-Go-Out-Tonites!”
When Michael goes for the “Hot Girls” solo and can’t, Butch is laughing and saying, “I’ve got all of my fingers, shit, I’ll never make fun of you again.”
Then in “Ladies & Gentlemen”, when it gets to the solo, Butch looks at Michael and says, “I’ll get this one”, and does it instead.
It just cracks me up.
