Getting There - The Archive Opens Up

Only downside of having written so much about rock and metal in the late 1980s and 1990s is most of it is in print only, so no digital copies. I'm in the process of finding the old stories, scanning them, or just retyping them, so I can get them up here.

But here's a bit of a preview of what's coming up over the next few months (or year)

Faith No More In Sydney - Interviews, Show Reviews, Hanging Out (1990)

Skid Row In Sydney - Interviews, Show Reviews, Hanging Out (1990)

The Baby Animals - Year One and Getting Back Together In 2012

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page Interviews from the early 1990s

In The Studio With The Angels (early 1990s and 2012)

The Screaming Jets In Full Flight - Behind The Scenes Of Their Breakthrough Year

Lemmy Interview

Guns N Roses Down Under

Chrissy Amphlett/The Divinyls

Lengthy Interview With Slash (1994)

Rose Tattoo/Peter Wells

Bodycount/Ice-T Interviews

Metallica In Australia

Rage Against The Machine, Green Day, Sonic Youth, Hole, Nirvana, Nancy Vandal, Freedom Of Fire, Bad Religion, Sepultura, Cannibal Corpse, Fear Factory....

And plenty more.

One thing I did notice, reading these back, is many of these interviews are from bands' early days, before they bored with doing interviews, and there were much less restrictions then in how the interviews were conducted then these days. So lots of good info and great quotes.
