Padre Holmes is my guest on today’s podcast. As an accomplished musician, Padre is playing music with terrific singers like Morris Day and Macy Gray. It was great catching up with an old neighbor and to see he is doing so well. I never thought I would to talk to Padre about his life and times touring when I met him 10+ years ago. PaDre’s career as a musician has produced a wide range of music and his time playing with Morris Day and The Time, Macy Gray and Fishbone have led him around the world touring.

We chat about the changes in touring over the years (think TSA) and the communal living on the tour bus.
