Conor Oberst is featured on the cover of Spin magazine with an accompanying interview. During his interview Oberst is questioned about band, career and personal life.
My public life and my career and all the music that I’ve made: You can find it all,” he says. “It’s out there in the world. I’m not a Mickey Mouse Club star that got to rebrand myself. For better or worse, my stuff is all out in the open. And if you have any interest in what I do, or my songs, or the records I make, you can follow the whole trail. I absolutely don’t recommend that you do.
Beck is featured on the cover of Spin magazine with an interview inside the issue. During the interview Beck is questioned on the pressure to make hit singles and his collaboration with producer Danger Mouse.
Well, in ’98 I was gonna work with the Neptunes. I’d just recorded Midnite Venturesand was listening to the first stuff they were doing. But I took a few years off, and by the time I came back, they’d become the producers, and for that reasons I thought our musical collaboration wouldn’t be pure. When [Danger Mouse’s multiplatinum] Gorillaz record came out, I thought, “Maybe it’s the same thing, again.” But after he and I met and hung out, I decided I wasn’t gonna second-guess it.
Manson is featured on the cover of Spin Magazine, with a interview inside the issue. During the interview Manson is questioned on his divorce.
But then I realized that what’s wrong about me is right. To play devil’s advocate – but that doesn’t really work, since I’m the devil – people would say that drugs and alcohol wrecked my marriage. But buyer beware. She said she had tolerated the lifestyle because she hoped I would change and threatened to leave if I didn’t. I was sleeping on the couch in my own home. I was no longer supposed to be a rock star. I was someone who had to be apologized for. I wasn’t prepared to be alone. I came out of this naked, a featherless bird. I needed to get my wings back by making this record.
Beck is featured on the cover of Spin magazine with an interview inside the issue. During the issue Beck is questioned on career and the kind of music he wants to make.
I would love to come out with something that doesn’t sound like anything that ever happened before. But to do that you’d need to surrender all earthly pleasures and weaknesses. How can you not be seduced by an AC/DC guitar riff? Or a fat beat from a Gap Band song? These are musical hamburgers. These are pleasures we can’t deny ourselves.
Manson is featured on the cover of Spin magazine with an interview inside the issue. Mason is questioned about his career, friendships and his autobiography Running With The Devil.
I though it would be earlier now than later in life to explain how I grew up and the transformation that’s taken place over the past 27 years. I tried to do that on Antichrist Superstar, but it was much more esoteric and metaphorical, and I don’t think a lot of people understood it. Now people will know the facts, not a version skewed by magazine editors.
Beck is featured on the cover of Spin magazine with an interview inside the issue. During the interview Beck is questioned on his tour, stage presence and plans for his next album.
I think I want to do some stuff with more instrumentation, expand that a little. I don’t know, it’s all about getting in there and getting a rhythm and letting it come. Definitely the hip-hop stuff just keeps growing. I though it was just “Loser” and “Beercan.” That stuff on the first album, those were just experiments. They weren’t premeditated at all. With this album, I really found myself in this place where I knew the song was a hip-hop song. For me it’s the most challenging thing, so of course it’s the most interesting. And the deeper I get into it, the more addictive it is. The form is really conducive to experimentation. There’s only so much you can do with a country song or a hard-rock song. So I guess I’ll just be looking for more possibilities.
