Jeremy Taggart On Our Lady Peace’s 1995 Touring With Van Halen, The “Taggart And Torrens” Podcast, Future Plans & More

Jeremy Taggart first found success in the early 1990s as drummer of the band Our Lady Peace. First joining OLP as a teenager, Taggart was part of the band for 20-something years, contributing that to the group’s first 8 studio albums; all 8 hit the Top 10 in Canada, also scoring a ton of gold and platinum-selling certifications. In turn, Taggart toured with many of rock’s all-time top performers, including Van Halen, Alanis Morissette and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.

These days, Jeremy Taggart is a popular musician, podcaster and author. He co-hosts the Taggart And Torrens podcast with fellow Canadian Jonathan Torrens. With over 4 million downloads (and counting), the success of Taggart and Torrens’ podcast led to them writing the book Canadianity, a best-seller published by Harper Collins — the audio version of the book went to #1 on the Audible charts in 2019 — and releasing an album via Dine Alone Records (Marilyn Manson, Jimmy Eat World, Swervedriver). “TnT” has toured coast to coast, playing shows in every major city in Canada. And perhaps the true sign of success is that their show’s fanbase (willingly) has a name of its own: “bahds.”

Back in December 2020, when I was interviewing prolific musician and songwriter Stacy Jones for The DLR Cast — believed to be the world’s most popular David Lee Roth podcast — Jones told me a story that had been told to him by Jeremy Taggart. Jones ultimately connected me with Taggart and we spoke on January 13, 2021 via Zoom, as embedded below. We not only talked about the Van Halen Balance tour, but about his multi-faceted career, life during COVID-19 and future plans in general.
