Godsmack’s Sully Erna Talks About His Documentary, Their Famous Drum Battle, And More Download

20:28 Download February 9th

Days after his birthday, Sully Erna from Godsmack called in to discuss what the band has going on, along with his “I Stand Alone – The Sully Erna Story”, which you can watch now. 

He told me how the documentary started, after writing manuscripts for his book “The Paths We Choose”. He says his story is about perseverance….that’s an understatement. “So many times I could’ve easily ended up dead or in jail.” He told me how music really saved his life.

He said he was nervous watching it, but he thinks it came out good. I watched it in one sitting. There was stuff in there that surprised me, and some stories that were, as he said, hard to believe. He’s a guy who literally had to fight to achieve his success. “There really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it’s just a mother f&#$#er getting there.”

People may or may not know, Godsmack was a late-blooming band. Most rock bands get their start in their 20s. Godsmack started to break in their 30s. That’s unheard of in our business. He said after years of trying to make it as a musician for so long, he put the band together to just scratch an itch. 

He also talked about how drummer Shannon Larkin joined the band. He said they didn’t even do auditions for drummers when he came aboard. Suly went on to explain how he joined the band and how the “drum battle” started. That’s a highlight of any Godsmack show. 

As far as what the band has going on this year, he said they probably won’t be working on any new music, but touring with an intimate night of music and storytelling. 

You can watch the documentary on Apple TV, Amazon Prime, and other streaming services.
