One of the things I love most about doing these shows is how spontaneous they are. John and I came into this Paul Laine interview with pages and pages of notes and questions. Yet some of the best moments were spur of the moment. Paul Laine is a music nerd just like us! But not just a music nerd — he loves Star Wars and history as well as rock and roll!
Tonight we learned all about his early years at Little Mountain sound. The perils of the music biz. Joining Danger Danger. Touring. Shugaazer. The Defiants. Darkhorse. Who his favourite captain on Star Trek is.
We also corrected some misinformation, touched on some emotional stories, and all around had a very enlightening night. We had a barrel of laughs!
Paul joins the broadcast at approximately the 0:21:00 mark. (Prior to this, I did some music onboxings.) Paul chatted for over two hours. Brew a hot coffee. Sit, get a comfortable chair, and watch the whole thing. It was solid gold from start to finish.
Best show ever? My mom thinks so. Thank you Paul for being such an engaging and entertaining guest, and thank you John for making this happen!
