Exclusive interview with Rick Sazon. Great Rock Artist

⁸1. Rick Sazon I understand that you're from British Columbia, Can you tell me what's it like in your hometown?

Well, it's a nice place to the summer.

If that seems terse, it's only because I've been strongly advised by my lawyers not to mention the rampant chickenporn that goes on around here. 

Wouldn't wanna ruin the family-friendly rep this ol' town has, now would I?

2.Would you say that Canada has a strong influence on your style of choice?

I wish I could say that 'cause it would warm the hearts of them regular, God-fearin' folk back home but I can't  because the bands that I like to think influenced me the most are british, but I do like the Band though, and weren't most of the members Canadian? 

3. So what's your musical genre and are you active in the local scene?

 Rock, for better or worse. I've been active in sending my songs out to independent radio stations for airplay and have had some success but no, I haven't been active in the local scene.  Even before this pandemic.  

4.  So what's your musical genre and are you active in the local scene?

That would be the Beatles, the Stones, and the Who. And a bunch of assorted classic acts here and there.  Are PJ Harvey and Green Day considered classic rock? Either way, they're influences, I like to think.

Lyric-wise, there's Shakespeare,  Patricia  A. McKillip, and Tolkien, and George R.R. Martin.  If that sounds pretentious,  it's cause I am.

5. So tell us about your latest project

  My latest project is actually doing this interview. 

6. Do you currently have musicians that you work with on the regular?

Yes, that would be Chris King , one of the best guitarists in the region ( he plays lead guitar on most of my songs, most notably "WAR" and "Unconquered") and Zoe Pelton, a really talented singer - she sang lead on "Riddles" and "The Unmaiden's Dream ".

7. Besides music, what are some of your other hobbies?

 Drawing chickenporn.

8. Do you plan on touring anytime soon?

  No...unless hitting a karaoke bar next time I'm in Vancouver counts.

9. Any last remarks?

 Final words? I haven't even begun to babble.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
