With his stoner image, stoner rock star Mark Stone has become an overnight sensation.
On Friday, Nov 2, Stone’s first live show, “Mark Stone & Co.,” will take place at the New York City Theatre.
Mark Stone and Co. will have three acts, and there will be an after party.
We caught up with Stone to talk about how his show came to be, how his stoners music evolved, and how he views his fans.
What started out as a band, how did you guys first get together?
Mark Stone: I have a brother named Matt Stone who is a guitarist, and he introduced me to music when I was 16.
So when he told me he was going to make me a guitarist and we were going to be working in his band, I jumped at the opportunity.
I played in a bunch of bands before, and I never really got into it until I got into a band with my friend, this guy named Mark Stone.
He was a guitar player, and when I met him he was a drummer in a rock band.
We met through our friends and we ended up forming Mark Stone & Company in the spring of 2003.
Mark Stone and Matt Stone met and started making music together, so it was sort of like an open-ended thing.
We never had a songwriting or a producer or anything like that.
So it was kind of like, we just went into it like, this is this thing we want to do and it’s going to work.
I’ve always had a lot of fun making music.
I started writing songs around like 2002 or 2003.
And I never wanted to write a song about anything, so when I first started out, I thought that’s it.
I thought, I’ll just write songs.
And then I ended up writing some songs with a band and that’s when I started getting into writing stuff that I thought was really cool.
I have a lot to say about how we came to this idea.
I was just thinking about all the stuff that happens in my life that I want to tell people.
The things that have happened to me, the things that I have been through, that I’ve been dealing with, and things that we’re dealing with.
And just just like the way that we started out.
We were just talking about a lot.
I had a feeling like, I’m gonna do this.
I think it’s hard to write songs in a day, but just writing songs about the things you’re dealing through makes it really easy.
You don’t have to think about anything else.
You just write.
And so it kind of changed me.
I think that I’m really good at talking about the stuff I’m dealing with and trying to show it in a positive way, and the things I want people to be able to understand.
I don’t know if it was because I was in my mid-30s or it was just because I didn’t really have any other bands.
So I was really into that whole scene and really good friends with a lot different people.
It’s kind of weird to be in a band now and it kind ‘s like you’re in the middle of nowhere and it just sounds like hell.
But I was like, ‘Man, I wanna be in this band and I wanna make this music.’
So I kind of started writing stuff and then I kinda had to stop.
I started making songs with other people, but it’s always been about writing music and then it’s about making music, and then you have to just do it.
It was definitely like I just had to take the leap.
I don’t even know if I can remember when I had to say, ‘Oh, I can’t do this anymore.’
But that’s just where I started, just getting into this scene.
It was just like, OK, you know, I gotta do this, this, and this, because I want this band to be successful and I want my band to have fans.
I want the band to get people to want to hear the music.
I can just do this!
I’m really proud of what we’ve accomplished with Mark Stone, and his music, the way he started off and his progression and the way it kind-of evolved.
I’m just really proud that I get to say what I want.
I get this amazing voice, and Mark is a very gifted musician.
I feel like I have this unique voice.
I have an amazing story behind my music.
But at the same time, it’s just music.
It ain’t gonna be as good as my next record, or my next album.
But it’s really about me and what I’m doing and I think it really speaks to the people who are listening to this music and how they feel about this music.
Mark has been in a lot more bands than me.
We have some really cool bands in New York that I
