Ep. 36: Mike Stand of the Altar Boys and Altar Billies

Singer, songwriter and guitarist, Mike Stand has been making music for over four decades. When the Altar Boys brought their anthemic brand of righteous punk to the So. Cal. music scene in the early 80s, their fans knew they had found something special. In this most memorable conversation, Mike and I trace his musical journey through the tragedies and triumphs, from his childhood, to adulthood, to parenthood. We chat about his various bands, that along with the Altar Boys, includes Full Circle, Clash of Symbols, solo work, and Mike's latest band, the Altar Billies. Mike is great to talk to, which made for a very special episode filled with great stories and memories.
