Grunge Summit 2008: Part II

4466

Here is the second installment of the results from Grunge Summit 2008. I thought Tad Doyle (of TAD) and Chad Channing (of Nirvana’s early days) would be a good pair since I’m doing this in twos. Tadchad!

What Tad Doyle Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?*
    I am a bookkeper for Flux, Inc. I occupy space and displace air or water depending on where I am.
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    Yes they do. Sometimes they know who I am.
  3. * What do you think of the current state of music?*
    Love it. There is always plenty of fresh new bands to keep a guy like me busy and listening for a lifetime.
  4. * Name five albums you’ve been listening to lately.*
    1. Middian Age Eternal
    2. YOB The Unreal Never Lived
    3. Christ Punchers Psalms For A New Dark Age
    4. Celtic Frost Monotheist
  5. * When you meet new people, do you find that all they want to do is talk with you about grunge? Are you tired of talking about grunge?*
    I usually direct the conversation to other subjects.

What Chad Channing Had To Say

  1. * What is your current occupation?*
    musician/dad/landscaper 2 days a week
  2. * Do people ever come up to you and ask for your autograph?*
    yup
  3. * What do you think of the current state of music?*
    I think some of the best music being made will never get heard. Big labels buying out the little guys is killing music. Something has to give…just hope I’m around to hear/see it. Not sure what I think anymore.
  4. * Name five albums you’ve been listening to lately.*
    1. Portishead P3
    2. Amon Amarth Odin At Our Side
    3. MIA’s second record
    4. TATU’s second record
    5. Ween (anything)
  5. * When you meet new people, do you find that all they want to do is talk with you about grunge? Are you tired of talking about grunge?*
    Not really. Breifly if anything. Sometimes.
