This episode of the Rockstar Superhero podcast features Sam Fishman, the drummer of the well known "most patriotic band in the world," Madison Rising.

Sam came to me via another great friend from the midwest and I had a great time chatting. Sam is a very talented drummer, full of great groove and completely plays for the song. A great guy and fun personality, I found the best part was asking about his personal life and his passions. Like yours truly, Sam loves roller coasters. This makes liking him that much easier!

With that, I hope you'll love meeting him as much as I did and I highly encourage you to check out Madison Rising on tour, on digital media, and everywhere else you can check them out! They are great.
