Woo! I finally found a local one! I was surprised (in a good way!) that Adrian actually called into our local alternative station here in Seattle, The End 107.7 a couple days ago to talk about the upcoming tour stop in our home town at White River.
It seems as if the DJ has been obsessed with them since she was young, check out the blog she wrote on the radio station’s website.
Yesterday I got an email from harms that said Weds at 12:50 I would be interviewing ADRIAN YOUNG the drummer for NO DOUBTâ€¦â€¦ I AM SO NERVOUSâ€¦
I mean, itâ€™s a phone interview, thankfully that gets rid of a little bit of nerves, but not really.
We do so many things with amazing bands. Weezer comes and does a concert where you can also be on stage and play with them, we do endsessions and meet and greets with bands all the time, and I am always like, â€˜oh man this is so coolâ€™ but my excitement is never at the â€˜passing outâ€™ levelâ€¦
This may be the â€˜Passing Outâ€ levelâ€¦ OMG! I used to have pictures of NO DOUBT all over my wall! I had 13 copies of TRAGIC KINGDOM (Iâ€™m going to lie and say 7) when I interview Adrian cos I donâ€™t want him to think that I am psychoâ€¦.. I was â€œgwen stefaniâ€ for halloween for years and yearsâ€¦..I named one of my bands â€œThe Gwen-A-Beeâ€™sâ€â€¦.. (oh come on i was 12) and No Doubtâ€™s music is totally one of the biggest influences on what shaped me into who I am todayâ€¦â€¦
and to be able to talk to Adrian, is making me so nervous!! I didnâ€™t sleep very much last night, and my stomach is in KNOTS.. Iâ€™ve met Tom Delong, Travis Barker, Tom Morrello, Paramore, Nicole Ritchie, The Dudes from Goldfinger ect. ect. ect. but this is killllllllliiiinnnnggggggg mmmyyyy nervveessssâ€¦
I posted â€œI am interviewing Adrian from No Doubtâ€ on my facebook, and a friend I went to high school with wrote me back â€œdonâ€™t be nervous, youâ€™ve been waiting your WHOLE LIFE to talk to him!â€
Thatâ€™s just what makes me nervousâ€¦.Iâ€™ve been waiting my whole life to talk to them!!!
Iâ€™ll post the interview ASAP!!
I can’t seem to get the interview to play for me…someone want to try and let us know what he says? Thanks in advance! Thanks Rosie!
Adrian mentioned how the tour is a great way for the band to reconnect. He confirmed that Steve and Gabe will be on the tour,as well,saying the tour would not work without them.About Paramore being the opening act, he said he had heard some of their songs on the radio and liked them,and that he thought they would be a â€perfect fitâ€ for ND. When asked which songs wouldnâ€™t be played on the tour,he metioned that since the concert will be about an hour and a half long, obviously some of their catalogue wouldnâ€™t be played. The DJ was a huge fan and when she admitted she had 13 copies of Tragic Kingdom,Adrian laughed and said he had about 45 copies of it in his closet,lol. The DJ asked if his hair would undergo any chnages for the tour,and he said probably not,and that decisions like that were â€gametimeâ€ ones. He mentioned again that he will be talking to Mason about his wardrobe(or lack thereof) for the tour.
