Blues Traveler tell Lorry about John Popper's motorcycle mishap and other rock 'n roll road stories just before their sold-old Irving Plaza show. Popper presented Lorry with one of his harmonicas, taken from his flak jacket of assorted instruments and weaponry.
Paw - the alt rockers from Kansas introduce their video "Couldn't Know" from backstage at Roseland. Paw's album, Dragline, also produced the hit "Jesse," as well.
The Poor gave NEON viewers a big Oii! to introduce their video for "More Wine Waiter Please." We shot this interview at their hotel room. As should have been expected with Australian rockers, this turned into more of a drinking party. Does this screen shot look out of focus?
TAD - the Heavy Metalists (and we do mean heavy) from Seattle get a little crazy when the camera starts rolling backstage. TAD's album featured the Headbanger's Ball hit "Greasebox."
Legs McNeil talks about starting up PUNK magazine with John Holmstrom and what it was like in the days when the Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads and all the others were street-level club bands. Of late, Legs has been seen as a music "expert" on VH1.
