Here the “King Of Kamelot” sits down for an exclusive interview with Simple Plan’s amazing bassist, David Desrosiers (What a cool and humble guy by the way!), where we discuss the band’s amazing success and loyal fan base, how they are able to stay fresh and relevant in such a fickle industry where most artists fade after a hit song or album, their upcoming world tour, the one band that has really blown his mind that he’s played with,and soo much more. I have to confess that I love so much of their music and sound, so I was sitting there as a fan as much as an interviewer… Here is their Band Site, and their Atlantic Records Site for some more fun and interviews…Enjoy Kade Nation!!
