Eric Gunderson From Love And Theft: If ‘Angel Eyes’ Goes Number One, “I Will Go Crazy”
“Old Man Strength.” Flying saucers landing on front lawns. And Sas-squirrels.
You never know where a conversation with Eric Gunderson from Love and Theft is going to go. However, we do know this: “Angel Eyes” is poised to go number one, and if it does, Eric says he “…I will go crazy. It’s the one thing I’ve kind of always dreamed of but never really expected it would happen, so I’m really nervous and I’ve been having panic attacks even though I don’t have any anxiety problems…so it’s really weird”.

Pat is out on vacation, so Eric talked to Tom and Julie. Tom asked Eric about a recent incident that occurred when Eric was doing community service in Nashville. It was his punishment for accidentally bringing a machete to the Nashville airport when he and Stephen were flying out to the Academy of Country Music awards. Two of the people on work detail with him tried to rob him, but Eric and – and a well-placed elbow – thwarted the thieves, who marveled later at Eric’s “old man strength”.
To find out what exactly “Old Man Strength” means, and to hear Eric explain the legend of “Sas-squirrel”, listen below:
