Welcome to the third installment of WE’RE ALL NERDS! Anybody can ask bands about cool band stuff, but leave it to us to make them geek out about real grimy nerd shit, how their unique eccentricities got them where they are and the way it’s shaped their current artistic worldview.
Initially skeptical about taking part in our series due to his lack of traditional “nerd” interests, Scott Hedrick, founding member and badass guitar god of Ohio thrash heroes Skeletonwitch, then blew us away with a deep dive into his fandom of avant-garde 60’s guitarist John Fahey. A great listen not just for guitar geeks but also fans of all “under the radar” folk heroes, Scott proves that even if you aren’t super into comics, TV or movies, we really are all nerds. Thanks Scott, you’re awesome!
