Welcome Ben Vaughn into our world. The world of Performance Anxiety. Ben is one guest whose career left no room for Performance Anxiety. He was always that guy who was SUPER into music. Even though he had a genuine love of music, he started a family and worked as a landscaper in New Jersey. But once he started playing, he was hooked. But until Pulp Fiction, he was a man out of his time. But when his surf rock influenced album, Instrumental Stylings, coincided with the release of Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, combined with a chance comment on Morning Becomes Eclectic changed Ben’s career. He began writing music for TV and movies, the first of which was the classic, 3rd Rock From The Sun.
We discuss all of this, our mutual love of AMC cars, turning his Rambler into a studio, recording an engine solo, his radio show/podcast, The Many Moods Of Ben Vaughn, his latest album, The World Of Ben Vaughn, and so much more.
