Ep. 34 Dryden Mitchell : Lead Singer Of Rock Band Alien Ant Farm
Today we sat down with Dryden Mitchell at his studio in Huntington Beach CA. Dryden is the lead singer of the rock band Alien Ant Farm. They were formed in 1996 in Riverside CA, and are most famous for their Michael Jackson cover of Smooth Criminal which topped the billboard alternative songs in 2001. This single was a huge hit and appeared on the first season of WWE Tough Enough, and the movie American Pie 2. They also had songs featured in video games such as Tony Hawk, Madden NFL, NHL and more. One of my favorites from Dryden was when he went solo and released a song called Friday I’m In Love which appeared on the soundtrack of the movie 50 First Dates starring: Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. I can go on and on, but you get the idea. Dryden and his band have since been touring the world performing for fans, and today we talk all about his career, but as always we dig a little deeper, and open fun conversations about life, family and so much more.
