Interview with Michael Cartellone Part One now up

Postby Rockwriter » Thu Oct 15, 2009 9:17 am


Part One of my new interview with Michael cartellone is now up at We Will Rock You ... -part-one/

In Part One we discuss Lynyrd Skynyrd’s current live dates in support of the 'God and Guns' album; choosing which new songs to play with such a large back catalogue; how to integrate new songs into a set of classics without alienating fans; fan reaction to the new songs, especially “Still Unbroken”; the recent deaths of Billy Powell and Ean Evans, and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s history of overcoming adversity and moving on; the process of replacing members and how that affects the music; whether a band that replaces members can still be seen as that band; Michael’s own entry into Lynyrd Skynyrd, and how he found his place in the band despite being a “Damn Yankee” joining a Southern Rock band.

Please stay tuned for other segments where we have a long discussion about Damn Yankees, Michael shares some great stories from that era and talks about whether there will ever really be a reunion.
