Coming off the release of his Red-Headed Stepchild EP, Kutt Calhoun has been having quite an eventful week.
As he headed to the 12th Annual Gathering Of The Juggalos on August 13, Kutt would unexpectedly find himself face to face with the very man that inspired the smash single, “Charlie Sheen”. We caught up with the Kansas City Chief to discuss his fateful meeting with one of Hollywood’s most controversial stars and how he feels connected to him.
As it turns out, Kutt was not aware of Charlie Sheen’s presence at The Gathering until the night before. Obviously excited about meeting the star, Kutt explained how the first meeting went and what it meant to him:
“I didn’t know that he was hosting it until the night before. Somebody said it on Twitter, I was like, ‘Get the fuck outta here, are you kidding?’ So I heard about it on Twitter. I tweeted him and everything. I certainly told him who I was, what label I was on. He was going to be hosting and I wanted to meet him, told him I had a song about him. After he got done announcing us, he was right there on the side stage and I just took my pictures right there. Before we even went on and he even stayed up there for two or three more songs, watching our show blew his mind away. It makes me feel good. Somebody of Charlie Sheen’s caliber. Regardless of the shit that he’s went through, I think that it made him even bigger. He was Hollywood’s Red-Headed Stepchild here for a minute. The connection was there.”
Knowing a thing or two about being an outcast, Kutt’s feelings on the whole matter came through on Red-Headed Stepchild. Charlie Sheen’s past had no effect on Kutt’s perception of him, and in fact, Kutt managed to find similarites between them:
“I didn’t have a predetermined way of how he was going to be. I’ve been watching Charlie Sheen since I was a young dude. All of his movies or whatever, just to be around him was exciting. He’s a funny dude. I been watching the Two And Half Men and all that. When I met him, I took it for what it was. He was a cool down to earth dude that loved what he’d seen on stage. He was blown away. He was down to earth . Kind of the way that fans feel about me when I’m walking down to the crowd and I’m just talking to them. I felt that same way, like he’s too cool to be Charlie Sheen. Made me feel good.”
Due to timing and unforseen circumstances, Kutt was not able to physically hand Charlie Sheen a copy of Red-Headed Stepchild during their chance encounter. However, Charlie Sheen was excited to hear about a track he inspired and Kutt intends on following up with the star:
“I’ll be giving his Assistant Manager a call in the next day or two and confirm it. When I told him about it, he was like ‘Charlie Sheen?!’ He was like, ‘What?! Charlie Sheen? I’m on that! That’s me!’ I’m like, ‘Yeah man, you inspired the track.’ He was like, ‘You gotta get that to me!’ When he definitely hears it for himself, he should be like yeah, this is my shit. I’m going to have him tweet it and all that.”
With a clear connection between the two, it’s only a matter of time before Charlie Sheen finds himself enjoying his own theme song by the way of Red-Headed Stepchild. Stay tuned for more from Kutt Calhoun, as he looks to link up with the man behind Tiger Blood once again.
