Joe Oestreich of Watershed

Songwriting, recording, balancing two singer/songwriters, Billy Squire, the dirty secret about "live" albums with a rock vet of 3 decades.

On episode #76 we're joined by Watershed bassist/vocalist Joe Oestreich, author of the new book "Hitless Wonder: A Life in Minor League Rock and Roll." Joe has spent almost three decades traversing the country bringing his band's version of Midwestern power-pop to the masses, and has plenty of stories to tell in part one of a two part interview, discussing songwriting, recording, balancing two singer/songwriters, Billy Squire, the dirty secret about "live" albums and much, much more.
