Reflections On Rock And Roll Life w/ Øystein Greni

I got the chance to sit down with one of Norway’s biggest rock legends, Øystein Greni from the band Big Bang, and record today’s awesome podcast (pre-COVID of course). We get into songwriting, where creativity comes from, how expectations can screw things up, and the touring lifestyle plus how skateboarding in his youth was a catalyst to his rock n roll future. All of this and more in today’s episode so buckle up, strap in and listen to the pearls of wisdom from this rock icon.

Who are your favorite musicians and where are they from? How have your expectations actually screwed things up? Where does your creativity come from? Send me an audio message or shoot me an email over at
