    So many of y'all probably read the discussion about member interviews in X's thread. Meatball suggested that we do member interviews, and suggested a great list of questions there, which I'll quote at the bottom of this OP.

    I wasn't able to record video this time, so it's audio only. But setting up and doing this was so much fun -- getting to know Staffan was easy as you could ask for, and I sure enjoyed the hell out of it. He's a great guy, one hell of a player, and if this first interview is any indication, these interviews will amply serve their purpose of bringing the membership together.

    Anyway, here's the interview. It's about 35 minutes and I did my best to keep language SFW:

    And here are some of those questions:


    And Heartstring added these:



    And just a reminder, Dave made a pointed mention of courtesy and civility being required in these sorts of threads. Let's all please abide by it!

    Only on a music forum does the interviewer mess up the recording. Lol.

    The accents are hilarious.

    lmao I was telling Staffan before we started that even tube amps have been known to outsmart me ... much less video software!

    Outstanding. I can only see this getting better and more refined as we go along.

    I'll be doing some written Q n' A interviews as well. I'm currently working up some questions for Luth's Corner icon Freddy G.

    I think Wednesday's difficulties actually worked to our advantage, because the unrecorded conversation that day was so comfortable that today it helped keep this from sounding too stiff or formal.

    Glad we could talk and we'll definitely do some more. :thumbs:

    YEEEHHAAWW !!!!! I just listened to the whole thing ,,, Who was the handsome devil that suggested we do this ??? Mr. Humble himself ,,,,,,,,,,,ME !!!
    Uh ,,, Thump,,, do I get royalties from every interview ?? A tee shirt ? A worn down Pick from a street busker ?

    I loved that one comment that Lagg made that you really cant pinpoint one single member of MLP .. Thump , I liked your illustration of the fact its a personality "Stew " ,,, so I wonder ,, does that make me the hunk of fat in the stew ???

    Man I am so looking forward to my interview ,,, Do I have to be on my best behavior ??
