I’ve been a huge fan of The Living End for what it feels like my crucial years of youth and growth so it was an honour and achievement to interview them in lead up of the Soundwave tour.
this morning I did an interview with legendary rocker John Garcia.
It was my first interview with John, I had previously had one scheduled but it fell through.
admittedly i’ve been aware of John and his importance to rock music for sometime, but only really given him the attention.
i hadn’t done a phone interview for months now and i’ve been trying to fit them back into my busy schedule.
For me phone interviews are more important than in person, you have the distance, sometimes a delay, accents.. so many barriers you need to overcome to get that personal connection with the talent and it doesn’t always happen, but it’s so rewarded to me when it does.
John is a chatty person by nature, but I could have talked to him and he to me for hours it seemed. He was so open about his emotions, history and personal life and seeming it was his last interview after a day of press it was lovely to have such enthusiasm from him.
