Slightly Stoopid is a reggae-ska-rock-punk-crossover band from California that has been going strong for over 17 years. Originally signed by Bradley Nowell of Sublime, the group has carved out their spot as one of the most influential reggae-rock bands in America. Their most recent studio album, Top of the World, stays true to their unique style and features reggae greats like Barrington Levy and Don Carlos. In this interview, I chatted with long-time band member and drummer Ryan Moran (a.k.a. “RyMo”) about tons of cool stuff—including the band’s history, songwriting, tour, favorite music, and favorite drink!
