Interviews

Why So Serious, Tracy Morgan?

Tracy Morgan is no stranger to live television, having been a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” from 1996 to 2003. But since 2006, Morgan has safely plied his trade on NBC’s critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning "30 Rock," a far less... how shall we say... unpredictable, pre-taped environment?

Amy Ray: An Indigo Girl gone solo — but only temporarily

If you listen to enough Indigo Girls music, you know that it's not all frilly harmonies and plaintive contemplations. Fans of the 27-year-old duo know that each of the singers, brunette Amy Ray and blond Emily Saliers, bring vastly different sensibilities to the mix — and that is perhaps the reason for their continued popularity.

The Reverb Interview: Ween

The genre-shredding duo of Gene and Dean Ween has never been a general audience rock act. Outside of Colorado, anyway. Despite the reams of press the band gets, and a brief dalliance with the mainstream after the left-field MTV joke-rock hit "Push Th' Little Daisies" in 1993, the kind of love that Colorado shows Ween remains unique.

Why So Serious, Moshe Kasher?

Here's the thing about Moshe Kasher: He transcends time and culture, taste and religion. He is, in the words of the almighty Moses, the only comedian we've ever needed -- and the only one we'll ever want.

The Reverb Interview: Gavin Rossdale of Bush

Alt-rock band Bush kicked off its reunion tour on Tuesday in San Diego, and as frontman Gavin Rossdale wound his way through a career-spanning set that included the '90s hits that made him famous — "Comedown," "Glycerine" and "Machinehead" included — he noticed something unexpected in the packed crowd below him.

The Reverb Interview: John Butler of the John Butler Trio

In the John Butler Trio's new "Live at Red Rocks" CD/DVD set, there's a beat that sets frontman Butler apart from the roots-dub-jam pack. A noted Australian environmentalist, Butler took the time in front of his biggest-ever headlining audience in the U.S. last June to thank American Indians, some of whom helped open his Morrison show as a part of the Denver March Powwow Dancers.
