andrew is so cool, but who the hell is this fumbling goofball interviewing him? is this his first time doing this?
One of the best Andrew interviews I've seen! Thanks Mr. Scott!
great interview :)
This Paul Spence guy is the worst interviewer I have ever seen. What an idiot! I had to turn it off halfway through.
Why was he so bad? He actually had a normal conversation with his interviewee...complete with normal human awkwardness...as opposed to sounding all pre-fabricated as they too often do... Plus, Andrew's answers to the questions were interesting.
He's not nearly as bad as Rick the Temp. I remember Andrew taking the piss out of him on a Live at Much special.
Thanks once again, Mike for giving us this link. It was a great way to learn more about Andrew, but I have to admit that interviewer was pretty weak. And I couldn't help but note that he said he was a big fan, then he asked, "You play the drums, right?" Yeah, right. It just seemed that he didn't have a preset list of questions that pertained to the band, almost like random questions out of the blue.
But besides that, it was an enlightening, at least for me, interview with Andrew, who plays the drums I think. (Just kidding.) I learned more about his family, how long he's been married (or at least together with his wife), he has two children, his dad was an artist (I learned that his dad played golf on the DVD), and it being in a band was the best job in the world. And there were teases back at the other three guys. This does bring up a question I wonder about: are they close friends after all these years?
Anyway, it was interesting, and I enjoyed it. Sure wish the sound level was a little better though.
Wow. Andrew is cool, and a trooper for dealing with the dude, but man! He parades his lack of knowledge all over this interview. Rhiannon?? Rhiannon who? So he did FUBAR -- is this intentional? Is it funny?
"And I couldn't help but note that he said he was a big fan, then he asked, "You play the drums, right?" Yeah, right."
You don't have to know everything about a band to be a fan. For years I didn't know what anybody in Sloan's name was let alone what instrument they played and I still considered them one of my favorite bands.
And yeah, some of the questions were a little weird (is his daughter's art fueled by paint fumes??) but at least it produced an interview that was different and interesting rather than the stock stuff people usually come out with.
The bigger problem for me was that he kept holding the microphone too close to his own mouth so that everything came out distorted, and not close enough to Andrew. He'd keep pulling the mic away from Andrew just as he was saying something, and cutting him off. Unintentional I'm sure, but it gave the impression that he was trying to be the one who was important, rather than his interviewee.
"Andrew Scott on the drums! ALL RIGHT!!!" (that's kind of a giveaway that mr. scott is the drummer. but maybe not all fans committed the imminently worshipable live album's inter-song banter to memory.)
I liked the interview. Andrew is a class act.Thanks
I thought the interviewer did a poor job. It started out good - but he didn't ask anything about their new album, and he would non-sequitir into the ridiculous. He could have stayed more on focus about the festival, too. And most of his questions were generic. I was a bit apalled at his failed attempt of comedy re: Andrews's kids. Asking if his daughter gets high off the fumes in his art studio - and all that crap about leashing kids. Lame. Hell - he brought up Quadrophenia and couldn't remember that the Mods fought the rockers. And he didn't know Rhiannon was a Fleetwood Mac single??
Nonetheless - Andrew handled him and the questions rather well - informative and humorous too.
Good job Andrew - and thanks MN for posting a link.
what an odd interview.
the movie fubar is really awesome though. giver.
dude you fucking rule. Before I do, A side Wins, and Sinking Ships....some of my favorite songs ever. Respect.
