The ST Family is starting our Anniversary Season Celebrating on April Fool's Day. It's a hump-day Wednesday, but if you're in the NYC area, The ST Family would like you to join us at S.O.B.'s in The Village for Eric Roberson, as he brings his The Box Tour to his Home-Turf stage at S.O.B.'s. Get tickets (here).
Ironic that Erro is performing in NYC during ST's Anniversary. Erro and I go back to '07 during the Houston stop of his Left Album Tour. I was freelancing at the time and I had just finished my interview with Anthony David. After my interview with Anthony David, I was leaving the backstage area for the musicians on my way out to the general area to enjoy the evening's performance. Erro sees me and jokingly asks, "What? You don't want to interview me? I'm not big enough or something?"
I laughed and said, "Hell Na Bruh! You got time to 'chop it up with me for a few'?" Erro says, "Yeah Man. I'm trying to get this TV to work. I want to see The Giants' last pre-season game." I tell him I'm a Big Giants fan as well and that I went to school with Michael Strahan at Texas Southern University. Erro told me how cool that was and shared a HBCU joke with me. During the small talk, we both tried, but we never got the television to work on the 'special' channel the game was on. We gave up on trying to watch the game, sat down, and 'Chopped It Up'. I tell Erro about how I sing, Pretty Girl to my daughter when we're in the car and his response is something I'll never forget. A true gift, because this was an interview I never asked for. Heaven sent. #TrueStory

Well several years and albums later, I came across the recorded interview notes, downloaded it from the 'back-in-the-day' mini-cassette recorder, and here it is. Just two Dudes, "Chopping It Up".
