Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: The LA Maybe


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Rock 'N' Roll band, The LA Maybe from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

I was in the Chicago airport and I overheard someone say “She gave me the ol’ L.A. Maybe!” referring to how L.A. folk can be notoriously flaky and fickle - always looking for something better to come along and never committing. I loved that phrase and came up with the band name “The L.A. Maybes”. Then Foz [drummer] recommended we drop the “s” and here we are.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Rock n’ roll was never an option. It was just something we all felt we were born to do.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Sparing you too many of the boring details, the band got started after some of us left a Journey tribute band we were playing with to write our own rock n’ roll. We went through several lineup changes but in the summer of 2020, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, we solidified our perfect lineup and got to work recording our debut album, Dirty Damn Tricks.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Way too many to list! We love all the classic greats, but also so many modern bands as well!

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Of course, we’re inspired by all our heroes, many of whom I’m sure you can immediately name upon listening to our music…but who really inspire us are our peers. Bands like Dirty Honey, Small Town Titans, Joyous Wolf, Blacktop Mojo, South of Eden, Greta Van Fleet, and so many more. They keep us hungry and excited to be a part of the New Wave of Classic Rock.

6. Where was your last gig?

Between the pandemic and changing lead singers, we’ve actually never played live with the current lineup. We have our first show coming up quite soon (at the time of writing this)!

7. Where would you like to act?

We can’t wait to work our way around the world and see it all!

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

How about The L.A. Maybe opens for The Black Crowes who open for Guns N’ Roses. That’d be great.

9. Whom not?

We’re always down to collaborate with anyone! No one is off limits!

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that?

Of course! Nerves before a gig are quite common. My advice would be to put in your rehearsal and practice time. In fact, put in more than you think you need. The best way to minimize stage fright is to be completely confident in what you’re about to do…and that happens in the practice room way before show time.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Van Halen, The Black Crowes…many more!

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

This wasn’t really a request but one time at a gig we finished a song, I turned my back to the crowd to tune my guitar, and a couple seconds later felt someone put both arms around my waist. I heard a voice whisper “that was incredible” and I look up startled to see a drunk, middle-age woman standing on stage with me whispering in my ear. Highly inappropriate. 

13. What do you think of your fans?

We love them, of course!

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s great!
