Danny Trejo Is An Enigma, Covered In Blood, With A Heart Of Gold- An Interview.

June 29, 2018

October 15th, 2010. How does one write an introduction about spending an hour of his life interviewing Danny Trejo? I definitely don’t want to blow up Danny’s spot, but underneath the rugged exterior, he is an extremely compassionate person. Besides being on of the most feared bad guys in cinema history, he is also a humanitarian, dedicating countless hours to speaking with people (especially youth) about drug, alcohol or criminal problems. In his documentary Champion, Danny says he hopes to be remembered as somebody who helped, and after spending the time that I did with him, and seeing his sincereity first hand, I have no doubt in my mind that he will. But enough of the sappy shit. Danny would have probably cut me by now if I was saying this to his face. So without further ado…

This Place Is Death- An Interview With Chino Moreno of The Deftones

June 13, 2018

12:30pm, Tuesday March 15th. I lay in bed with a nasty fever as I receive a call from the Deftones publicist letting me know Chino would be available for an interview at 3:30 that day. I knew I had an upcoming interview with him, but no idea it would be that soon, so needless to say, I was not completely prepared. Luckily, I, along with some close friends (who also love the Deftones) were able to come up with a quick interview in the short time we had! My gratitude goes out to them as well as Chino Moreno for taking the time to do the interview!

Walking Each Other Home

It is such an honor to have been asked to write an endorsement for Ram Dass’s final book (co-authored with the amazing Mirabai Bush)! Click HERE to pre-order!!!

“In their poetic and captivating dialogue, Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush reflect on what it means to be human: to live and love; to experience joy, heartbreak, and the fear and freedom that laying it all aside brings as we awaken to our true Self. Walking Each Other Home is a deep and genuine transmission of the heart—a gift for us all.” — Chris Grosso, author of Indie Spiritualist, Everything Mind, and Dead Set on Living

The Gospel of Jourgensen- A Look Into The Mind Of Ministry Via Interview.

123
June 3, 2018

Everything Ministry has created since its inception has been an evolution. Al Jourgensen, the architect of Ministry, succeeded by remaking the mainstream in his own image and forging a new style of music.
Jourgensen morphed Ministry from a lightweight synth-pop band in the early ’80s to a musical juggernaut with many side projects (Revolting Cocks, 1000 Homo DJs, Pailhead, Lard) on legendary Chicago-based Wax Trax! Records.

Moving to Sire Records in the mid-’80s Ministry released albums showcasing an ever-evolving style. The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste and The Land of Rape and Honey both went Gold as people searched beyond bland MTV conformity.

Psalm 69, featuring “N.W.O.”, “Just One Fix” and “Jesus Built My Hotrod”, went Platinum in 1992 and forever changed music with its heavily aggressive content. Subsequently in 1993, Ministry received a Grammy nod for Best Metal Performance for “New World Order.”

After a handful of releases since Psalm 69, Ministry is back with Relapse, which  Jourgensen affectionately calls his  “Psalm 70.” In this writers opinion it’s agressive, it’s relevant, it’s necessary and most of all, it’s a fitting way for Al Jourgensen and Ministry to say goodbye…at least for now.

The following interview was conducted via phone on 1/30/12.
