From High School Jazz Band to 23 Years of Unity
Nick Hexum of 311 gives us the 411
Rap, rock, funk, reggae...however you are compelled to label it, there is a bigger, better overall vibe that stands above description for Nick Hexum's band 311... Unity. 23 years and "no end in sight" certainly makes this 311 fan as giddy as a little school girl. These guys have been together since their days at Westside High School in Omaha, Nebraska circa 1989 he credits their success to how much they respect each other as evident in his love and admiration for his band mate and fellow guitarist Tim Mahoney and their unified "attitude of gratitude".
I enjoyed talking to Nick as he had an effortless confidence combined with an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for being able to do what he loves. He really appreciates his fans, his band mantes and so many other musicians as well. Check out more on that in my conversation with Nick which we had on his birthday last week Plus get info on bands he loves, squash the biggest bull crap story about the band and learn details about 311's 2013 Unity tour (which stops in Mansfield with Cypress Hill and G.Love and Special Sauce July 12th, tickets available now at www.livenation.com) Your chance to win tickets with Radio 92.9 is also coming soon right here on this website, stay tuned!
