Jeff Kerby of KNAC.com spoke with Soil bassist Tim King and asked him what his worst interview experience he’s ever had. King said, “The guy who was interviewing me started out going, “What’s it like being in a rock band now that rock’s dead and nobody is listening to rock music?” I said, “What are you talking about? Rock’s coming back bigger than ever right now, if anything, now is the best time to be in a rock band.” He’s like, “Really? Why do you say that?” Shawn’s kinda listening, and he’s like, “What’s this guy saying?” I kinda put my hand over the receiver and told him, “He’s saying that rock is dead.” Shawn goes, “Hang up on him.” You know, I didn’t end up hanging up on him, but I basically had to school him through Rock 101 of the year 2001. He knew nothing about our band. He knew nothing about rock. He didn’t even know who Staind, Drowning Pool or Disturbed were.” Read the entire transcript here.
