Interview with Joseph Buscema (Live The Story)
Who Are You?
My name is Joseph Buscema and I play drums in Live The Story.
Why do you play music?
I play music as a form to express myself and honestly, it’s about all I know how to do. There are not many things I am good at or can see myself doing for the rest of my life… In fact music is all I can do for the rest of my life.
What has been on your mind lately?
Not a whole lot, I have been trying to clear my mind of any anxieties or thoughts that depress me. I’m learning to live day by day and accept my life for what it is. The more I think about things, the more upset I get. The world can be an ugly place or a beautiful place. That is up to you.
What’s happening with your band lately?
A bunch of tours in the works, some cool media stuff that you will probably hear about soon and just generally writing new music.
Any bands you can recommend to us?
You must check out Like Pacific. Every other band I could name here, you have probably already listened to.
Best concert you have ever been too?
So hard to pinpoint one concert/ show… But I guess the first time I saw Rancid in Toronto. I also got to see H20 at the Reverb (RIP) which was a legendary venue (apart of the Big Bop) in Toronto. I recently got to see Casey Jones for the first and last time in Toronto in a small room, which was awesome.
What are you most excited for in 2012?
To hopefully begin to fully live out my dreams.
