Chris Kael recently joined Ryan, Drew, and Cameron Mills of Kentucky Sports Radio ahead of Five Finger Death Punch’s show at the Rupp Arena in Lexington on 6 December 2019.
The three-part podcast segment is centred around American Football and specifically the University of Kentucky (UK) team and upcoming game predictions as well as the latest Five Finger Death Punch news. Chris also shares his excitement to be performing for the third time in his home state.
In the podcast we learn Chris’ first musical instrument was actually the clarinet as his parents wanted him to be in a local marching band but a school teacher ultimately convinced him to switch to the bass – an instrument he always wanted to play.
Chris talks about Spinal Tap moments on the bands current US tour, American Football (specifically UK), his support for the Las Vegas Golden Knights, his new BC Rich Warlock bass and of course, his infamous beard.
UK fans will be pleased to hear that Chris’ favourite place go on tour as a tourist is Scotland and specifically Edinburgh which he describes as an incredible city.
Also covered, Chris gives the story on moving from Kentucky
to Las Vegas in pursuit of his dream to be in a band. He recounts the story of
how he first joined Five Finger Death Punch and the audition process where he performed
No One Gets Left Behind and The Way of the Fist.
And finally, Chris also shares his road to sobriety and reaching the milestones of 22-months sober and how he and Ivan Moody have been supporting each other.
