Troubled Men Podcast
TMP 125 Ben Ellman Blasts Off!
His work with Galactic, Big Freedia, Trombone Shorty, the Revivalists, and the Klezmer All Stars should be enough to keep anyone busy. Along with his Galactic bandmates, the saxophone/harmonica player and producer is also an owner of the iconic New Orleans music mecca, Tipitina’s. Ben’s long history with many of his collaborators is a testament to his good character and ability to get along with others. Maybe some of that will rub off on the Troubled Men, but don’t count on it.
Topics include Daughters Day, “The Social Dilemma,” dog medicine, Dick Cheney, local crimes, a Hard Rock fire, a meeting on acid, memories of an L.A. childhood, hard touring, the 90s rock scene in N.O., Joe Cabral, Eric Traub, Theryl DeClouet, band democracy, studio workflow, production credits, Boyfriend, club upgrades, a black swan event, bailing water, the Tip’s TV streaming platform, e-cigarettes, a tight pod, Tito’s Tacos, and much more.
