If You Could Read His Mind...

Posted: Updated:

Maybe you remember the old Gordon Lightfoot song, If You Could Read My Mind… it continues, "…what a tale my thoughts could tell…" That should be Brad Carter's theme song. I just wrapped up interviewing Brad on Studio 11 @studio11LA where the musician and actor talked about recovering from brain surgery.

But it wasn't your routine neurosurgery (is there such a thing?). Brad played the guitar the entire time surgeons were probing his brain, trying to steady the tremor in his right hand. He told me he never wants to go through it again but is so thankful that the tremor has been almost completely removed.

Carter is not only a very cool musician but an actor you may have seen on shows like Dexter, House, CSI and now on True Detective—HBO's gritty new series starring Mathew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Not sure why he always plays the heavy—the demented criminal or backwoods crazy because in person he's a light-hearted son of a southern preacher. Must be the talent. Anyway, check out the interview and marvel at what UCLA neurosurgeons have done to give more of us a chance to see and hear Brad Carter.
