So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio? 


I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in  Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.  I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock.


When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?  


When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)  It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.  To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and  I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.  I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood. 



Being a Singer and songwriter what are some of the creative routes you take to make the ideal song? 


When I write the song the only thing I think about is expressing the feeling. Most of the time I do not even know where the lyrics come from. "She thinks I'm Crazy" was not even meant to be on the Album but one songs did not work so at the last minute I need one more song. The song was written dacades ago and would be dead and gone but for some reason It's still alive. It felt right at that moment so it found it's way on the Album.  


Could tell us about the band Vein?


By chance my first band was a punk band and after I had played in a few bands it was becoming clear that I probably sing as well or better than any of the singers we could find. I was also writing the songs so the guys I had been playing with for several years reformed and we called our new band "VEIN" with me as the Lead Singer.  It was the mid 90s and alternative music was big. We fit right in. At the time if your an all original alternative band, unsigned with no support and you last 5 years and record 3 albums you did well. 


Could you tell us about your latest project?  


Today I have finished my latest Album which is just going into post production. it will not be released for several months but this is where I use the Violins and Saxsaphone and Piano. The new material has an 1980 like synthiziers sound as well.  I do not rely on my guitar playing so much like I use to.  It is by far the best Album I have ever made and I hope to let everyone hear it soon.

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
