In 2001 VH1 debuted the show Bands on the Run. It was a massive hit, yet it only lasted one season... We felt like it needed much more attention.
In the wake of Flickerstick's reunion (long after Soulcracker, Harlow, and Josh Dodes threw in their towels), we have decided to break down this insanely dated time-capsule of what-the-f*ckedness and talk with other touring musicians, friends, and music journalists about what they got wrong and what they got right.
We head to Memphis with Ronnie Barnett of The Muffs in the van to take a closer look at Episodes 9 through a ton of laughs, cringe moments, and more.
You can watch every episode of the show for free on youtube HERE. Catch up and catch the magic.
If you want early access to these episodes and the extended version of this episode, head over to the Rigs of Dad Patreon Page where you can also hear more unedited, ad-free interviews with previous guests, patreon exclusives, and beyond!
