A behind the scenes look...
On this week's special Thursday "not so Live" Lesson, Aldrine breaks down his crowing musical achievement: the Bandito Tyler Album. He unmasks the bandit and reveals the origins of the character. For the first time ever, Aldrine shares the meaning of each song as well as the inspiration behind them. He also discusses his writing process, recording choices, and plans for the future of the bandit, or shall we say "Bandits". To top it all off, the guys wrap things up by giving away one of the few remaining available physical copies of the album.
