Dirty Skirty singer Luke Stephens shares story of his bandmates auditioning for his spot in prior band
You’ve likely heard the expression, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Dirty Skirty frontman Luke Stephens publicly shared today a horrific band related experience that he went through almost two decades ago and that he considers as the most impactful thing that has ever happened in his life.
The following message was posted on Stephens‘ Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“The most impactful thing that ever happened in my life was in 2001. I went to my band’s warehouse to practice drums and get better and I caught my band auditioning a new drummer on my drum kit.
To quote a band member a few days prior “I don’t care if that junk yard dog is playing on the recording we want it as good as it can get.”
That day I learned about loyalty and motivation.
When you are down like many of us are now stand tough and be your own hero.”
Stephens went on to eventually front Dirty Skirty who released two albums, Long Live Rock N’ Roll (2010) and Rebel (2014), with the debut album landing the #6 spot on Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2010. Dirty Skirty are currently working on their third studio album tentatively titled Devil.
