THE MAIN MAN: A INTERVIEW WITH JOHN O’CALLAGHAN OF THE MAINE

interview by Michael McCarthy I’ve been a fan of The Maine since they started out. I caught one of their early shows on a bill that included Good Charlotte, Boys Like Girls and Metro Station. I believe it was 2008. The tour was cleverly entitled The Soundtrack of Your Summer Tour. The reason...

DEFRAGMENTING JASON WERBELOFF, AUTHOR: PART TWO

DEFRAGMENTING JASON WERBELOFF, AUTHOR: PART ONE

interview by Michael McCarthy I’m what you could call a book-aholic.  I’m addicted to books.  I’m so glad that Kindles came along when they did because I own so many hardcover books that I’ve long stopped counting.  I’ve filled over five bookcases with them.  Point being, I’ve literally run out of room.  So,...

THEY WILL NOT BE CURED: AN INTERVIEW WITH REX COX OF UNCURED

interview by Michael McCarthy Uncured is a fierce new band that blends technical death and progressive metal into a unique sound of their own that splits the difference between classic Opeth and vintage Dream Theater.
