Derry Grehan Interview, Honeymoon Suite: “It’s a work ethic, not a party…”


On this Derry Grehan interview: going from playing clubs 6 nights a week to getting a major label deal and playing arenas, cool story about his marriage, dealing with depression and some low points when the music industry shifted and his career was put on hold, cool guitar talk, not screwing things up as a young musician because of his gratitude and because of his awareness that he was in a business, bike riding, laying tiles, and not being a dick. Great convo, high energy and very open, lovely guy
