Backstage Pass.

Between 1984 and 1991, Jeff Sewald earned a portion of his living writing interview profiles and reviews of major musical artists, and is currently at work on a memoir about his time covering the music scene. Fortunately, audio cassettes of Mr. Sewald’s interviews have survived several relocations and have been digitized for posterity. He plans to share excerpts from some of these interviews on this web site for the enjoyment of music aficionados. The list of artists interviewed includes the following, among others:

Frank Zappa, Graham Nash, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Tony Bennett, Huey Lewis, Henry Rollins, Ann Wilson (Heart), Roland Orzabal (Tears for Fears), Dee Snyder (Twisted Sister), Mac Davis, John Denver, Tom Jones, Adrian Belew (King Crimson), Gregg Allman (Allman Brothers Band), Gloria Estefan, David Sanborn, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Warren Zevon, Joe Walsh (The Eagles), John Waite, Anthony Keidis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Donovan, Liza Minnelli, and Ted Nugent.
