    Default Musicians who give entertaining interviews

    What musicians do you find give very entertaining interviews?

    If you have links to videos, post them...

    Here's Rivers Cuomo, being really pissed off during an entire interview on some Australian talk show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5nWi7JPMso

    Here's Maynard James Keenan, being annoyed by an interviewer who is a complete tool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ucBFavtHAY

    "It looks so emotionally draining for you when you perform...is it like therapy for you?"
    "Yeah sure. Therapy."


    Maynard was bothered by that because she sort of was putting words into his mouth and acting like he should give this typical misunderstood rocker answer.lol.

    Here's Henry Rollins being a dick/trying to intimidate a younger kid who is interviewing him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-xMkHgan0Y

    The kid is just a bit of a tool, but the way Rollins acts is unwarranted.

    I like that you can hear RATM playing in the background of Maynard's interview.

    FUcked up had really good interviews back when they were just getting started (or still do depending on who it is). Half the shit they answered with was complete bullshit, and for a looong time people thought that the band literally hated each other.
    Beastie Boys are great interviewees.

    Yo dawg, Tom Waits.

    Seriously.

    Every interview with him is an absolute riot. He just lies directly to the interviewer or otherwise reinvents the truth to be funnier or more interesting. Don't believe a word, but believe all of the words. For sure.

    Ted Leo is probably my favorite musician to listen to/read interviews by. He's a smart guy with a really great sense of humor. Not much more to it than that.

    It's funny you should say that. I've always refused to give Fucked Up a chance for two main reasons: 1) They gave an interview one time on http://www.punkradiocast.com/ and were really annoyingly pretentious. They were really over-intellectualizing everything, talking about their tendencies in tour life as if analyzing characters in a novel. 2) A guy I don't like listens to Fucked Up. He's an Army man, and in his FB he has this quote "the nation that makes a great distinction between it's scholars and warriors will having it's thinking done by cowards and it's fighting done by fools". Stupid, stupid quote. I'm sort of kidding about these reasons, but I'm almost not.

    Yeah, he seems like a cool guy and I didn't know he was from New Jersey. I like people that make good points without sounding like they're trying to hard, or are really proud of themselves for what they've said.

    Yeah I dunno. Maybe I'll give Fucked Up a chance at some point. If there was a band called "The Fuck Ups" that would sound more punk than hardcore...for some reason.

    Propagandhi, specifically Chris Hannah, give good interviews. I'm a fan of the way Chris Hannah explains things. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxYPxgpvvjg
