Interviews that Deserve a Standing O: Mumford and Joel


Unless you’re Oprah Winfrey or Barbara Walters, journalists’ interviews of interesting people generally suck.  Either the questions are as creative as a wet mop (how did you get started? who are your influences? blah blah yawn blah) or the artists being interviewed choose Fort Knox as their modus operandi.

I’d like to give a big fat  BRAVO to two interviewers this week.  Not only were their subjects highly coveted and revered artists but ultimately, they were deliciously satisfying.

After reviewing the sensational roots rock band Mumford & Sons, I’ve been embarrassingly obsessed with the band.  Kudos to Fuse TV’s Mark Hoppus for hosting a refreshingly fun interview with Mumford & Sons on music talk show, A Different Spin. The interview successfully captured M&S’ playful nature leaving Mark Hoppus stunned after some unconventional turns are initiated from the UK-based band.  Even more impressive, the few minutes on camera revealed some of the most unique musical mechanics that have Mumford & Sons multiplying their fans worldwide.    

Howard Stern also gave what critics are calling the best radio interview ever given to the legendary piano man, Billy Joel this week on his radio show broadcast on Sirius.  Bob Lefsetz, the popular music-ranter sang uncommonly high praises in his blog this week for the interview.  Woven throughout the conversation was Billy playing the piano and walking us through fascinating stories from his career and unlocking the real origins of where the music came from.  Revealing, raw, and so gripping, it was virtually impossible to get out of your car.    Here are links to the entire interview.

As someone who cares how well-crafted the questions interviewers ask, Mark Hoppus and Howard Stern were right on the money.  Both interviews gave me a deeper respect and admiration for not only the musicians, but the true craft of a good interview.  Bravo!

    Stern always manages to get awesome interviews outta people you might expect to not be so great. Stevie Wonder was another good one.
