Michael and I met through pals and the music scene in Vancouver. We became fast friends with a mutual love for good music and fancy t-shirts. Legs Occult, the band he's in with two of my dear friends, will change your life. Check him out below.
NAME: Michael Douglas Weiss
NICKNAME(S): F**k'n Weiss
OCCUPATION: Drummer/welder/science instrument builder/fashion forecaster/muse.
YOUR BAND: Legs Occult
BANDS YOU'VE PLAYED IN: Legs Occult, Two Towns, Tender Hearts.
OTHER INTERESTS/SKILLS: I love fashion photography, beautiful homes, going to the ballet with my girlfriend, making cocktails at home, telling boys to shave their beards and generally looking amazing ;).
YOUR STORY: Small town kid. Amazing family. Started playing music so my big bro would like me. It worked. I was always into the arts and music was the one that really stuck. As time went on I found it more interesting to talk to other artists and get them inspired and evolve their work. Constantly pushing and asking for more. To me that is one of the highest places I have gone with my work.
FAVOURITE PART OF TOUR/TRAVEL: Looking amazing ;).
TOUR/TRAVEL HACK: Take nothing but carry on when flying, always show up 2 hours early for flights and have a drink, look amazing, I always think "what would Charlie Watts do?" then do that :).
BEST TOUR/TRAVEL STORY: A group of friends and I were riding our motorcycles over a long weekend and of course it rained the entire time. The last day a solid 8 hours in we were heading back to Vancouver and a couple of us broke off the main group to crash at my gramma's place. Soaked to the bone, cold, tired, hungover and completely defeated we pulled into her place. With open arms (full of beers) she let us in and offered every one of us a nighty to wear while our clothes were being washed and dried. Being in a room full of bikers with my gramma's floral nighties on and listening to her tell stories (half a bottle of scotch in) was what made that stupid motorcycle trip the best one yet <3. Love you gramma <3.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SAY?: Call me some time <3.
