Hands down an awesome interview.
I’m sure that your modesty is appreciated by all, however, it is incredibly misplaced. You may claim that your are nothing more than a scribe but those who have met you understand that there is so much more involved than that.
I certainly admit that it is an incredible statement about the character of Twisted themselves that the band relishes one of their fans so much that they give you the access that they do. On the other hand I feel that only a certain personality would be so agreeable that such a situation come to fruition. In other words, it is only because you are such a sincere and dedicated person that an interview of this quality could be obtained. It is only because you have carried such a fire in your heart about this for so long that the members of TS genuinely consider you a friend and therefore you were able to achieve the honesty so apparent in your interview. I hold no illusions that any other person could not have accomplished this.
You may very well have been as nervous as you intimate, but if Jay Jay did not value your contribution to this band’s history so much the words you recorded would have never been spoken.
There is no one who could have done this better. It is phenomenal that the S.M.F’s have a great connection with those like Danny Stanton who is not only Twisted’s manager but also a fan and who strives to present all of the latest official information. However, I argue that only such honesty could be shared with and from someone who’s interest is so organizationally free of any other motive of the band’s path that it could singly be shared with you.
I thank you that your commitment is not only to the band, but to sharing the innermost working of the band with the other fans who share your interest.
I have no doubts that your next interview will be every bit as much, if not more so, groundbreaking.
