New Interview

Recommended Posts

Cool, thanks for the link. 

That debate he had with Gene Simmons, what year was that? Is there any info on it?  Sounds like that would be quite the event.

I don't know if it was actually public. It was in 2002 and both of them were keynote speakers at New Music West. At some point during the speech Matt references himself and Gene speaking back stage and how they had different perspectives regarding the goal that new artists should have when it comes to choosing goals. Sounded like it was a friendly and amicable conversation from what I remember 

Chad has the entire thing up on his site here: http://mattgood.plastic-soldier.com/downloads/audio/misc/newmusicwestspeech.mp3
Probably one of the best talks he's ever done. 

And there's a 5 and half minute clip of him playing and speaking at NMW that year here:

Oh man, that youtube clip is great. I've never seen/heard a live version of Under the Influence, nor did I know that there was an alternate verse (bridge?).

I love KISS, but Matt is right on with his thoughts there.

The interview was a great watch; I'm glad to see him so comfortable with himself these days, especially considering the 'bright-light' morning show that the interview took place in.
