Pantera, Courtney Love, and more!

Apparently it’s been over a year since I’ve updated this blog, so I’m posting a roundup of my recent writings on the web. (Also, check recent issues of Revolver for interviews I’ve done with Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, Kiss’ Gene Simmons, Metallica, Anthrax, and much, much more.)
I interviewed the surviving members of Pantera (and remixer JG Thirlwell) about their classic song “Walk.” We talked about everything from writing it to hearing it in football stadiums and strip clubs, from Phil Anselmo playing it at the Metal Masters show in LA this past April to the last time drummer Vinnie Paul got to  play the song with his brother, Dimebag Darrell.
  120504-courtney-1 I reviewed Courtney Love’s current art exhibition in New York.
I interviewed Lamb of God’s frontman, Randy Blythe, about his life advice, including how to ride freight trains.
I interviewed Mastodon about the time they met Barney.

I reviewed what may be Sonic Youth’s last-ever New York show.
I reviewed a recent Death Cab for Cutie show in Brooklyn.

 I interviewed Alice Cooper for the Broward-Palm Beach New Times, discussing what he was like as a child, his new band, and more.
And last but not least, I interviewed Marianne Faithfull about her critics, voice, and the Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones.
