TEN WEEKS! This week is a cool one for me - Adam Morgan had always just been “the old drummer from hopesfall” to me, having played on ‘The Frailty of Words’, ‘No Wings to Speak Of’ and of course ‘The Satellite Years’ however after a few facebook messages back and forth, we had arranged to meet up at The Milestone in Charlotte, NC when I filled in on tour for a band called Fifteen Dead. We hung out, drank $1.50 PBR tallboys and geeked out on vinyl and hopesfall trivia. As such, he was one of my first choices for this interview series, and so here is his interview!!!
1. State your name/what you do & a little known fact about you.
Adam Morgan. Former drummer for hopesfall. Current vinyl enthusiast

I think our guitarist, Ryan Parrish came up with it. It sounded cool, I guess.
