ASK ME YESTERDAY: AN INTERVIEW WITH TOM KEIFER (OF CINDERELLA FAME)

interview by Michael McCarthy Sometimes you wait a long time for one of your favorite artists to release a new album. Sometimes you wait a really, really long time. In the case of Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, I waited roughly 23 years. You see, the last studio album by Cinderella, the criminally-underrated Still Climbing,...

STREAM, STREAM AWAY: AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MEGAN DAVIES

interview by Michael McCarthy Several years ago, Megan Davies opened a Youtube account and posted a video of herself doing an experimental, classical guitar piece. It didn’t get many streams, but she kept the account open and eventually started posting other things. Those things being actual songs. Most of them were covers. Some...

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...

KAYFOZZY: AN INTERVIEW WITH CHRIS JERICHO OF FOZZY AND THE WWE

FLYING SOLO: AN INTERVIEW WITH KELE OKEREKE OF BLOC PARTY

interview by Michael McCarthy I first became aware of Kele Okereke when I read about Bloc Party, the band he’s fronted for roughly a dozen years now, in the British magazine Q in 2005. Immediately after reading about them, I hunted down their debut album, Silent Alarm, and knew I liked it before...

DEFRAGMENTING JASON WERBELOFF, AUTHOR: PART TWO

interview by Michael McCarthy On Monday we published part one of our two-part interview with Jason Werbeloff, one of the most exciting sci-fi authors to emerge during recent years.  His series Defragmenting Daniel had me binge reading, immediately going from one book to the next, and I’m normally a slow reader.  So, that...

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,...
