It was a privilege to spend time with the one and only Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls today in an incredible hotel rooftop suite at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, recording a fairly long interview — over twenty minutes. Listen for some on HPR tomorrow, and see him rock the Pro Bowl later today. It was a very special conversation with a down-to-earth, charming songwriter/performer/musician whose touched audiences around the world and across radio formats, transcending genres while genuinely impacting fans through meaningful lyrics and songs. Hear about it and more in this special chat I look forward to sharing!

HEAR KORN – NEW SEPTEMBER CLASSIC INTERVIEW PLAYER ISSUE

In late July I had the pleasure of speaking with Korn’s front man and vocalist, Jonathan Davis. He was soft-spoken, very cool, easy to talk with, and I think you’ll really dig this interview. What a laid back, very nice cat.

You may recall checking out some of this interview via HPR, and the extended interview with Jonathan on-demand in my DL New Releases Blog. What’s cool about this month’s Classic Interview Player is it more than doubles the length of what you’ve heard so far, with a whole bunch more conversation. Nearly twenty minutes now, it’s a meaty feature that also includes lots of the Korn Live The Encounter videos from their historic crop-circle gig. It has a special live in-concert cover that’s relevant considering some of our… shall we say… Floyd-based discussion, too : ). Also check out some cool pics, links, background and more…

Hope you dig it!

It’s a brand new full-length interview you can hear on-demand all month with Korn’s Jonathan Davis, in the Classic Interview Player’s new September issue.
