Recorded a new interview with Incubus vocalist Brandon Boyd!

Hear it soon on HPR. Brandon generously spent 33 minutes recording a meaningful conversation touching on a variety of relevant topics: a lyrical run through of several key Incubus songs, his advice on bringing good things into your life, personal connections to Hawai`i and experiences here, the new album “If Not Now, When?” (out July 12), using his passion as a visual artist to help raise awareness about plastic litter in the oceans and much more.

Incubus is performing in Honolulu at Kaka`ako Waterfront Park on August 5th.For more information on the show, visit bampproject.com‘s page for the concert.

Have you heard the new Incubus song? Here’s the video:

“Adolescents” from “If Not Now, When?” out July 12th.

Hear the April Classic Interview Player issue w/my guest BB King!

What an incredible celebration as the King rolls through Hawaii for his first time since 2002.

Relive this moment in time, with a rarely heard segment from our lengthy backstage session that fateful night in November 2002 when BB King played the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, and was my guest for the second of two interviews that month.

For nearly a half hour, BB and I shared rock stories and memories. It was the follow-up to a phoner to promote the show, and a small portion of sound clips was used through the years. Once, a long-form extract based on those same sound clips was presented. It was nearly half of the material recorded that evening. Now, for the first time in over five years, hear that long-form extract, as heard previously on a single broadcast. It’s a fitting way for our April Classic Interview Player issue to honor BB as he returns to the Blaisdell April 27 in Honolulu.

Accompanying the interview, see a cool through the years slide show, including vintage BB pics from his early years that aren’t often seen.

Perhaps best of all, catch 10 live videos, featuring not only fun and classic BB TV appearances, but also BB sharing the stage with Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Ray Charles, Little Richard, Billy Preston, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, James Brown, U2, and many others. It’s a video tribute well-worth digging into.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by. Be sure to add me on Facebook. Mahalo.

NEW INTERVIEW: MICK FLEETWOOD

Mick joins a cast of celebrities like Tom Arnold, Cheech Marin, William Shatner and others for the Maui Celebrity Series December 30th concert in Lahaina.

Over the years living here, this call from the Valley Isle makes interview number six, equally divided between phoners and in-person. The first time was an April 2007 phoner to promote the Crater Festival 2007. He performed with the Island Rumours Band at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel Monarch Room in May for a media event connected to the crater thing, and we did a live phone interview, plus recorded a separate one that day. In September 2007, he performed at my five year anniversary concert and did another set of interviews on the phone and at the venue. This latest conversation talked up the show, explored his new position on the Maui Memorial Foundation Board, life in the islands, and more. Listen for it soon on HPR, and get an extended interview of it afterward on their site and here.
