On Episode 156 of the Enormocast, we find the second half of an interview with artist, photographer, climber, historian, Dean Fidelman. Dean was/is a Stonemaster, was/is a Stone Monkey Рthe only guy to really span those two distant eras. His climbing odyssey began in the early 70s at Stony Point in Los Angeles, and 40 some years later, Dean remains dedicated to living the dream in Yosemite, a place he found not long after beginning climbing. Now Dean is striving to chronicle all the history he has seen through the lens of his camera and hoping to mentor those who will capture the epic climbing history of today and tomorrow.

Epsiode 154: Buddy Nielsen – One Version of a Dangerous World.

On Episode 154 of the Enormocast, I sit down back stage at the Summit Music Hall in Denver, Colorado with Senses Fail frontman and founding member, Buddy Nielsen. Buddy has been the lead singer and driving force behind this acclaimed hardcore band since 2002. Living the touring rock band life led him into many of the typical pitfalls of booze, drugs, and erratic behavior. But rock climbing, the birth of his daughter, and the care from and for his wife have brought him to a hard-won place of balance in the last 3 years. Buddy is a proud helmet-wearing, slab-climbing, dad-climber who, like us all, aspires to get a little better every time he climbs. He finds that the fear and challenge of rock climbing is a balm to his anxiety in normal life. All the tunes in this one come from Senses Fail’s 2018 recording, If There is Light, It Will Find You.¬†

A Good ol’ Fashioned Music Video from Senses Fail.

A reminder that once in a while rock stars do, in fact, climb.
