VIDEO: My SXSW interview with Death


Thanks to Laina Dawes for alerting me that the SXSW team posted a portion of my sit-down Bobby Hackney, Dannis Hackney and Bobby Duncan. In this clip, they discuss the naming of the band, how they found their producer, and their near-meeting with Gladys Knight.

Thanks again to everyone who donated so that I could make the trip.

UPDATE: For those of you in/around NYC in July, Death will perform as part of Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors program, the 27th Annual Roots of American Music on July 31.  Check it here.

    Rob,

    You were really made for this – music curating, journalism, reviews, etc. You have an inherent gift for it.

    So glad that Death is getting some shine after a nearly 30 years of obscurity. It shows it’s never too late to pursue the dreams we all have.
