Cloverleaf Radio's host The Host with the Most Jimmy Falcon welcomes back Author, Drummer, and Survivor of the 1993 Waco Siege, David Thibodeau, appearing @ 2019 DHHC!
David Thibodeau was a drummer living in Los Angeles back in the ’90s after graduating from music school. His career was not going great. One day, he went to Guitar Center where he met Steven Schneider and David Koresh. They were looking at a drum set and asked Thibodeau to play it.They eventually started playing music and spending time together. This is how he ended up joining David Koresh’s cult. Thibodeau documented his experience in the book, Waco: A Survivor’s Story. He lost his wife, Michele and their daughter, Serenity in the raid. Talking about the book, Thibodeau said, “Writing the book was my therapy. I had to tell the story. ”The Branch Davidians is still active under new leadership, but Thibodeau is not a part of the group anymore. His book was adapted to make the miniseries, Waco, for which he also served as a consultant. His experience helped design the set and wardrobe.
