Rob Mount started drumming at an early age in his hometown of Rochester, New York. When he reached early adulthood, he set out to be a professional musician. After a couple of early trials in the music business, his story almost had a different outcome. After those letdowns, he took a break from drumming and the music business, but he remained prepared for opportunities that would surely come his way. And, they certainly did. After doing a couple of pick up gigs for Rochester's hometown hero, Lou Gramm, it wasn't long before Lou asked Rob to join his band full-time. On episode 065, Rob joins Jamie to discuss how he got his start, the times that he was down but not out, and how staying ready paid off for him with a once-in-a-lifetime gig. Rob is one of the most down-to-earth "real" guys in the music business that is eager to help other drummers. Be sure to listen to this great interview to hear Rob's awesome story.
