State Radio's Chad Stokes Sits Down With Cesar Millan (Dog Whisperer) To Discuss The Sometimes Fourth Bandmember

State Radio frontman Chad Stokes sits down with the Cesar Millan (aka Dog Whisperer) for his publication “Cesar’s Way” to discuss his new four-legged sidekick, and sometimes fourth bandmember Lefty.

On Rabbit Inn Rebellion, the track "Desert Queen" is written about the Aussie/Coyote/Chow/Wolf friend who tagged along for the train-jumping adventures that inspired the album. The same way modern gutter punks and age-old hobos have traversed the country, Stokes and his brother rode from coast to coast stopping off in cities and towns, picking up stories...and a dog.

Fun fact: Lefty has rocker roots too; he’s descended from the Grateful Dead’s touring dog, Karma. “He was given to me by a Choctaw Indian man called Toothless Donny near Flagstaff, Arizona. We bonded right away.”

To catch State Radio and/or meet Lefty, see full dates below.
