Daniel Leopold, leader of Leopold and His Fiction, may have moved away from his native Detroit years ago. But though he relocated to San Francisco and now Austin, he’ll be the first to tell you he’s a Detroiter at heart.
His band’s new album, Darling Destroyer, is pure gravelly rawk that would do native sons Iggy Pop and Jack White proud. Leopold talks here about his musical heroes, his hometown and how he keeps up his energy and discipline on the road.
