The Movie Crypt

Sep 25, 2023

PUBLIC VERSION. Singer/songwriter Jason McMaster (DANGEROUS TOYS, IGNITOR, WATCHTOWER, BROKEN TEETH) joins Adam and Arwen in the ArieScope Studio to share his hard rocking career journey. From forming his first band at 17… to the 40 years he’s now spent playing in WATCHTOWER… to why religion is afraid of rock n roll… to what the true meaning is behind the slogan “keep Austin weird”… to the joys and success that can come from not having an agenda… to how quickly DANGEROUS TOYS found success and the very famous musician who warned “that may not be a good thing”… to why the name of the band was only supposed to be temporary… to what it was like making the jump from playing in clubs to playing in big arenas and having videos in regular rotation on MTV and radio… to why he never fell victim to the typical rock star party antics… to his extraordinarily positive attitude about being content just playing rock n roll… to his unique style of singing and his work teaching music to kids through School Of Rock… to his philosophy that true fans never grow out of the things they’re fans of… Jason’s message of “be who you are, love what you love, and do what makes you happy” is one that will lift up everyone in THE MOVIE CRYPT audience.
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a listener struggling with depression, Adam and Jason nerd out over their music collectibles, and Jason reveals how his early correspondence with James Hetfield wound up being included in METALLICA’s incredibly comprehensive “Kill ‘Em All” and “Ride the Lightning” box sets!
NOTE: This extended length episode also includes Jason's appearance during YORKIETHON 5 from December 2020! (Patreon only.)
