Bacon’s Archive at Reverb.comPosted on October 24, 2017
I’ve started to publish some of my archive of interviews at Reverb.com.
These are full-length interview transcripts from some of the chats I’ve had over the years with musicians and instrument people. Mostly these were done for a particular book, and so I would use some of the quotes, selectively, in the book – usually leaving quite a bit that doesn’t get seen. It seemed about time to reveal more of these unpublished conversations.
Following the news of Tom Petty’s sudden and saddening death, and after some discussions with the people at Reverb about whether it was right to start with this one, we did indeed begin with my interview that I did with Tom back in 2009. More interviews are following, which I’ll detail below as they’re posted.
A Sgt Pepper special, with George Martin, Geoff Emerick, and Ken Townsend, who I interviewed in 1987 upon the first CD release of Pepper at the time of its 20th anniversary. Click here to read the interview at Reverb.
