Guitar player – Mink Rebellion and Good with Grenades

This week on Eggs we have special guest Ryan Speer. Ryan is a guitar player best known from his time in the wildly popular Phoenix, Arizona-based bands Mink Rebellion and Good with Grenades. This episode is a blast from the past for Mike and Ryan as well as they worked closely with Mink Rebellion more than 10-years ago! Having just recently re-connected with Ryan, the guys thought it would be fun to take along on a walk down memory lane to compare notes and share war stories. Ryan was an open book and we had a lot of fun talking about the rise and eventual fall of maybe one of the most impactful periods of time in the Phoenix music scene.
