IamA Jared Champion, Drummer for Cage the Elephant, AMA!
My short bio: Hi, I'm Jared Champion, drummer for Cage the Elephant. Here's your chance to ask me anything about Cage the Elephant, playing drums, our new album Melophobia (dropping Oct 8), or anything else you can think of. By the way I'm not here for PR, no one put me up to this. I've been a lurking redditor for years--I love Reddit!
So fire away, I'll be here for a couple hours!
(by the way, we'll be playing Letterman the 11th, so check that out!)
EDIT: Alright, almost four hours in! This has been a blast, wish I'd done it sooner! I'm gonna go jam some badass blues music with Thomas and John cuz these guys are just sitting here waiting on me while I answer these kickass questions. I'll have the computer and try to answer some questions between songs but it'll be slower. After we're done I'll answer some more, so upvote anything you want answered that I haven't answered yet. Thanks so much everyone!
EDIT 2: Alright guys these dudes are bitching because I keep trying to type answers instead of jam the blues. It was fun as hell, let's do it again sometime! Thanks for all your comments and questions! Reddit is a beautiful place. Except for /r/spacedicks.
Check out our album on Tuesday October 8, watch us on Letterman October 11, and come see us play live next chance you get!
