Chuck Treece‘s versatility is the stuff of legend. He spent the ’80s as a pro-skateboard kid who fronted an underground punk band, then made a switch to become one of the most skilled, sought-after session musicians in the city of Philadelphia.
Though he’s pulled bass duties with Pearl Jam and Billy Joel (That bumpin’ low end in “River Of Dreams”? Yup, that’s him.), Treece’s first love remains McRad, the punky power trio he founded as a North Philly teenager in the 1980s. This weekend, Treece is bringing McRad to WXPN studios to record a Y-Rock Local Tracks Session. You can tune in on Sunday, August 29, during the 8:00 hour of Jake Rabid’s Philly Local show.
The band has a few songs that you can stream here.
