Black Eyed Peas: Interview with Will.I.Am

In the world of popular culture, whether it be music, art, movies, fashion, pretty much anything you can think of where something is being created for the pleasure of the general public, there is nothing scarier than following-up your first smash success. They call it the sophomore curse, following up …

Anthrax: Interview with Scott Ian

Sometime in March I got an e-mail saying that I was invited to a press conference at the Sirius Headquarters in NYC on April 1.Ya know what day that is righty, April Fools Day. So when it detailed that the subject of this event was the reunion tour of Anthrax, …

Audioslave: Interview with Tom Morello

They surpassed falling into the pitfall of sounding like a mere hybrid of their previous historic outfits, Rage Against The Machine and Soundgarden. Hell, they didn’t even pull out classic crowd-pleasers like “Black Hole Sun” or “Bulls On Parade” while touring solely on their first self-titled record. Basically, that’s because …

Velvet Revolver: Interview with Duff McKagan

While Alan Greenspan wouldn’t release the exact figures at press time, professional estimates indicate that hard rockers Velvet Revolver now comprise no less than 27 percent of the United States’ GDP. This should surprise no one familiar with the band, which is comprised of former members of such relative unknowns …

The Bravery: Interview With Sam Endicott

By now you have heard of The Bravery. You have shaken it to their submissively catchy single, “Honest Mistake,” you have read one of the endless articles calling them the “Next Big Thing,” and you have tried at least once to duplicate singer, Sam Endicott’s greased-up hairdo.

After being together …

Dashboard Confessional: Interview with Chris Carrabba

The reuniting of Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carrabba with his original outfit, Further Seems Forever, is, without a doubt, the big story of this year’s Bamboozle. If you don’t think so, just flip the page over to that quotes feature. Even the bands playing want to see it! So, we …

.knuP: Interview With Brad Palkevich

Some people are willing to go through life and take things as they come. Others look at the world and see potential for turning things inside out. For this reason, I say to you that if there’s one underground band you don’t want to miss at this year’s Bamboozle, it’s …

Taking Back Sunday: Interview with Adam Lazzara

Although I’d say at this point the band doesn’t require an introduction from the likes of me, Taking Back Sunday have become the poster children for Long Island’s burgeoning (after half a decade—most of these bands are not new no matter what commercial radio says) emo scene.

Since their formation …

Midtown: Interview With Gabe Saporta

Three cheers for the hometown boys. After an extensive legal battle to extricate themselves from their former label home, Midtown disappeared out of sight and mind for a good long time, but came through holding their heads, and their new album, Forget What You Know, high.

Now on Columbia …

The Starting Line: Interview With Kenny Vasoli

I don’t think there’s any way young Kenny Vasoli, bassist and lead singer for The Starting Line, could have prophesized what was to come in the years following his early departure from high school.

Since signing to Drive-Thru Records, the foremost indie purveyors of pop punk and emo in the …
