Joel Frost does a TV Show called Playing Rock Star. This is a unique show where Joel plays with an established band on one of their big songs and gets a taste of what being in a band people give a damn about must be like. The first episode features The Electric Six, the band with their breakout hit “Gay Bar”. It’s a good conversation about the secret language of being in a band, being a fish out of water and what it is like playing in “the big time” even if only for a night. Check it out!
