Ron DiSilvestro - RAHHHHHHHN as I like to call him - is one of my closest friends from the Philadelphia music scene in part because I have worked with him in several different capacities over the 20+ years I’ve known him. The man does so many things at a high level. He's a go-to record producer, engineer, mixer, session drummer. He's also an inspiring audio recording educator with his own music school and production company RDS Music and Media. I've played in numerous bands with him such as the Awesome Bros. and the Jane Anchor, which I had to fire him from, but that's water under the bridge 😜
Ron's current band, Superunknown, a Chris Cornell / Soundgarden / Audioslave / Temple of the Dog tribute band, recently signed with a major booking agency and has been touring all over the map in recent months and only stand to get bigger. I've had the pleasure of playing the Eddie Vedder role in their rendition of "Hunger Strike" onstage a couple times and it feels as close to the real deal as you're ever gonna get at this point.
Ron met up with me at the Moonlight Family Diner in Glenside, PA - just a short drive from Forge Recording, where Ron was the salaried house engineer for fourteen years before forming RDS Music and Media. By summer of 2022, Ron will base RDS out of legendary Studio Four in Conshohocken, PA.
I hope you enjoy our great conversation!
