Mikey Doling and John “Tumor” Fahnestock of Snot sat down with National Rock Review on the 16th anniversary of the untimely passing of Snot’s original singer, Lynn Strait.

An influential part of the nu-metal movement, Snot released their critically acclaimed debut album, Get Some, in 1997 and disbanded in 1998 after a tragic automobile accident took singer Lynn Strait’s life on December 11, 1998.

Exactly sixteen years to the date, after this tragic loss, the remaining members of Snot made their first ever appearance at The Machine Shop in Flint, MI to play the Get Some album in its entirety.

Shortly before the band took the stage, guitarist Mikey Doling and bassist John “Tumor” Fahnestock sat down with Erik Heemsoth of National Rock Review, where they spoke about the legacy of the band, how influential their Get Some album was on the nu-metal movement, touring, new singer Carl Bensley, both Doling’s and Tumor’s other musical outlets, hobbies and future plans, and much more.
