Looking Back on 10 Years of SP with Chuck Comeau

  • Looking Back on 10 Years of SP with Chuck Comeau
    March 26, 2012

    Alter The Press sat down with drummer Chuck Comeau, to take a retrospective look back from the start of the band's career, for our latest "Ten Years On" feature.

    ATP: It's been ten years since the release of "No Pads, No Helmets...Just Balls". What comes to mind when you look back in retrospect?

    Chuck Comeau (drums):
    First of all, it's unbelievable that it's been ten years; it really does fly by. I'm just grateful that we're still here, we're still relevant and we have four albums out. Most bands don't get past two and are only hot for one minute. In some ways, I wouldn't say we're proving people wrong, but I remember looking back in 2002-2003 and people were saying, "They'll be gone next week!" and "They're a one hit wonder!" and that we would never last.

    I think you take a lot of pride and satisfaction in still being around. We have hardcore fans who still follow us. I think the greatest thing for us, is that it's the same line-up; it's the same five guys. I think that as a band, we're still together and we still enjoy what we do. I think, more than ever, we appreciate what we have and how lucky and privileged we are because most people are not in that position. And because of that, we try not to fuck it up and not to loose what we have.
