OTS 170: Failure is a Great Lesson - David Frangioni

Today’s guest has dedicated his life to the idea that escapism is one of the single most important elements of what makes us human.

As an award-winning veteran of the music industry, his expertise ranges from being a drummer and producer to an artist development and label founder. In his ground-breaking music tech consulting business, he worked with Aerosmith, the Stones, Ringo Starr, Elton John, and Sting.

He is the author of three books, the Founder of Audio One, and the CEO of Frangioni Media and All Access IDA. He recently became the Publisher of Modern Drummer Magazine, the world’s number one drumming publication.

Please join me in welcoming David Frangioni.  


In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “The definition of leadership is taking charge, taking responsibility for all of the steps and being what you want to see in the rest of the team.”
  • how having supportive, giving, and hard-working parents helped him not only go through some traumatic experiences but also inspired him into success.
  • his journey into building Audio One, which began with him learning how to drum at 8 years old.
  • his methods for staying in touch with people through a myriad of ways, but always focusing on serving others.
  • where his business is now, including mentoring people.
  • how he has taken over as publisher for Modern Drumming and what he expects to accomplish over the next year.
