Jackie And Metal Head Ned Interview Pop Evil

Here it is! You remember a few months ago when Metal Head Ned and I interviewed Pop Evil? Well the video is here, thanks to our video guy/promotions assistant, Mike Corn. We had a great time hanging on the bus with the band, and they even convinced Ned it was a good idea to drink like 10 shots in 10 minutes... it wasn't a good idea.

Pop Evil Gets Interviewed by Children [Video]

Our boys of Pop Evil had a big interview recently.

They really struck it big when they were featured on the Columbus, Ohio-based web show "Kids Interview Bands."

You have to see this awesome interview to understand, but the premise is these two girls -- seventh-graders Olivia and Connie -- interview rock bands. The girls claim, on their website, that their favorite interviews to date include Neon Trees, Imagine Dragons, Phillip Phillips, Walk the Moon, Tegan & Sara and Matt & Kim.

The best part is watching Pop Evil's Matt Dirito and Chachi Riot try not to swear while talking to children!

Last night Asking Alexandria played at the Orbit Room but before they headed over there they hung out with me in the studio! We kind of covered everything, from the bands first time in Grand Rapids, where lead singer Danny had a random hook up outside the Intersection, to talk of their new song "Death Of Me," and even some acoustics thrown in the mix! Check it out, and if you want to skip my useless chatter fast foward the interview to about 1:45, that's when the band chimes in!

Ned’s Exclusive Interview with NOBUO UEMATSU (Composer of Final Fantasy) and Earthbound Papas!

During your lifetime, really RARE moments will occur to you. I have been playing the Final Fantasy game series for over 15 years and have been hearing the familiar music from Final Fantasy in that time. Heck...even my ringtone on my phone is from Final Fantasy. Then I got an email asking, "Hey, I see your a fan of Nobuo Uematsu, would you like to interview him and his new group Earthbound Papas?" My mouth dropped to the floor...Gamers? This is for you!
