Here me on:
My second appearance on author Mike Carlon’s show, this time discussing Nick Cave’s Bar
“TMD caught up with Aug back in the early fall to talk about his life, starting out in New England, finding his way from Boston to London, to LA, and back to CT its a heck of an interesting journey. Music, Movies, Writing. Ego’s, alter-ego’s… its totally off the chain… get your ticket to ride….its free…I’ll Wait.”
“Look up the definition of Renaissance man in the dictionary and I’m pretty sure you will find a picture of Aug Stone. He’s a singer/songwriter, author, and comic whose alter ego Young Southpaw has been described as a character who traffics in short, memorized bursts of pun-filled, pop-cultural streams of consciousness.
I recently sat down with Aug to discuss his careers as a musician, author, and comic. Along the way we touch upon Van Halen, overcoming introversion to become a world-class performer, Chinese astrology, and, of course, the birth of Young Southpaw. I also learned that, at a young age, he wanted to be a wizard when he grew up but had to “settle” for being a professional musician. While all of that made for a very entertaining interview, I think what I loved most about our chat was realizing that Aug embodies a certain characteristic that I’ve uncovered in many of the most successful entrepreneurs I’ve interviewed on Uncorking a Story—the ability to put thought into action.”
