To be honest, my interview failed. Randy Stonehill, after a great set that totally rocked, went backstage and wasnt able to talk to me. In fact, he didnt even know I was there. But my interview with him will be blogged anyway, and in the genre of Chris Farley.
Tallskinnykiwi: Randy, you rock! That was excellent. You really WAIL on that guitar. Was that really YOU out there??????
Randy Stonehill: Ahhhhh .. . yeah.
Tallskinnykiwi: Aaah . . shoot. That was a dumb question! Randy, your song “American Fast Food [what a stupid way to die]” was soooooo 20 years before SuperSize Me! I wish you would have sung it today. And “Turning Thirty” was my theme song when I turned 30. And “Shut De Do” is so classic – i used to think it was an old gospel song. But you wrote that in 1983, while driving down a street in Hollywood. Ummm . .. didnt you? Did you REALLY write all those songs?
Randy Stonehill: Ahhhhh . .. yes. Thats correct, Tallskinnykiwi.
Tallskinnykiwi: Coooool!!!!! Wooooowwwww!!!!! That’s AWESOME!
Randy Stonehill: Yeah it is!
Tallskinnykiwi: Totally AWESOME!!!
Randy Stonehill: . . . .
Tallskinnykiwi: Hey – times up and i have to go. Thanks for a GREAT interview!
Randy Stonehill: Ahhhhhh . . . .
Tallskinnykiwi: Ok, thats it. PEACE OUT everyone!!!!!!!
[Disclaimer – this interview never happened because Randy walked out the back. But I came closer to Randy Stonehill than ever before. The previous time was 1985 in Sydney when Randy was playing a concert and I was right outside that venue on the same night. Didnt have enough money to go in, of course, but I saw the people who went in. Saw them up close too.
But tonight . . . I got close enough to RANDY STONEHILL to take that photo on my phone.]
