#getphilvotedin, The Podcast Episode 4 - Brad "Munchie" Marsh
In this episode, I visit with Brad "Munchie" Marsh, Phil Collins'  long time drum tech. Brad shares his experiences and opinions as only he can do having been Phil's 'right-hand' man...literally. Brad is a right-hander and Phil's a lefty, so we talk about that, and so much more. Learn where the kick-drum kitty came from and where it is today,  Brad's belief that The Farm Studio's house is haunted, Brad's favorite Phil solo song (hint Daryl Stuermer helped write it), the recipe for Phil's swamp water tea, how Brad helped move Phil's model train collection, and much, much more. Enjoy! By the way at about the 1:40 mark the podcast seems to end. Well Brad and I picked up a day later for a short few things we'd forgotten to cover, so when it seems like it's ending, keep listening! :-) You will hear all  about Phil's tea and more! I also wanted to note that because I use Zoom to record, and the interview subject and I can see each other, a few times during the interview Brad and I will talk about something in the room or he will hold something up to the camera. I will screen shot those things and share them on the Phil Collins Should Be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (as a solo artist) Facebook page and on website.  This link  will take you directly to the page for the screenshots, scroll all the way down. And one last note. I mistakenly refer to Phil's first time singing for Genesis in concert as having occurred in 1975, the correct year is 1976. (March 26, 1976, London, Ontario). #getphilvotedin

#getphilvotedin, The Podcast - Episode 2 Lamont Van Hook
Singer, Songwriter, Actor… Artist.      That’s Lamont Van Hook and we are thrilled to have him as a guest on getphilvotedin, The Podcast.We sat down with Lamont in July 2022 to talk about what he’s currently working on, including a new record of Country music, “with groove” due out in 2023, and all things Phil Collins. Learn Lamont’s favorite Phil solo song, who played ding-dong ditch on him on tour, what happened the first time he reported to work with Phil and much more in this hour-long episode hosted by #getphilvotedin founder Traci Baker. Traci conducts this interview, with co-host Kathy Steffen adding her unique insight to this delightful conversation with Lamont.   A little more about Lamont...As a child, Lamont was surrounded by music and musicians who played a huge role in shaping his unique musical style. His family history actually boasts musical talent on both his Mom and Dad’s side. Lamont has shared that much of his early musical training actually took place in his family church and by watching many of his family members “Do Their Thing.” Love that! A native of Oakland, CA Lamont began appearing professionally at age 14 as a drummer in a local R&B top-40 band. His recording debut came at about the same time, but in the gospel music genre. Lamont attended Howard University where he recorded two albums with the Howard University Jazz Ensemble and performed at the John F. Kennedy Center with Patti La Belle, Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder among others.  After graduating, he moved to LA and performed in just about every possible kind of venue; night clubs, local churches, recording studios... oh and some of the world’s biggest stages. Yes…Lamont has performed, recorded, and toured with legends like Rod Stewart, Sting, Diana Ross and of course, our very own, Phil Collins.Lamont performed as backing vocalist on 4 tours with Phil, the Testify Promotional Tour, the First Final Farewell Tour, the Going Back Tour and the Not Dead Yet Tour.Visit Lamont’s website at lamontvanhook.com.

Lee is among the very top bass players in music. He has contributed to 2000+ albums as a touring/session musician. Besides working with Phil  for 37+ years, Lee has toured/played with James Taylor, Jackson Brown and Carole King, among many others.We spent about an hour with Lee who is one of the most interesting, knowledgeable, humble and easy-going people. His interview is packed full of nuggets and stories about Phil Collins; his work ethic, fun on tour, his writing/recording style, and of course, Leland shares his thoughts on why Phil Collins Should Be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (as a Solo Artist).
