LOL. Once again the King of ProjeKction weighs in with a witty comment and makes me laugh.

Thanks, Darren!

Cheers,

Bill

Next interview maybe?



Actually, I am seriously considering Jamie. I spent over an hour with Jamie on July 17, 1993, and was fascinated by his anecdotes and sense of humor. I'm listening to my interview again. I'll post Jamie (or, perhaps, Leslie Bradley) soon.

And it is special that the talking is presented as it was ... no polishing, editing or making up something..


Thank you. Journalism and feature story writing was how I broke into the professional world. I started as a journalist with a few newspapers. I've always thought I had a knack for putting people at ease and just letting them speak. I think it has to do with <i>listening</i> well, a gift that has served me nicely in my years in advertising and marketing.

You're absolutely right, though. I don't intend to write anything libelous. And anything I did write that I even suspected was questionable I'd run by Robert to get his commentary beforehand.


This shows how intelligent you are Bill. And professional..


Thank you. I appreciate the compliment.

In fact, I sent him an e-mail the other day asking him to comment on the posting of my interviews. The last thing I want to do is upset Robert. I greatly respect the man and his musical talent. So I'd like to head off any problems before they even start.


More professionalism. This also shows your credibilty in the journalism world.


Well, that happens to be one of my pet peeves. I dislike journalists who inject too much of themselves in their stories. Too much of journalism these days is false -- literally. Did you happen to see the recent story about the <i>L.A. Times</i>? They apparently picked up and quoted a false press release and ran a story on their front page without even checking it out first. I really hate that. It gets so you don't know what to believe any more.

But that's another story.

Me? I'd rather just let the Crims speak. They're quite articulate and can reveal their personalities without my help.

Hopefully, I'll hear from him soon.



Hopefully so. I am sure you will. He seems very good about corresponding about business matters.


True. But I know he's a busy guy. And this is suppposed to be a holiday between Christmas and New Year's. So I doubt he's poised at his computer waiting for an e-mail from Bill Murphy. According to his DGM Live! blog, the man gets hundreds of e-mails every day.

That said, I will say I recived a very nice reply from him just prior to Christmas. Say what you will about Robert Fripp. But I think he's a very cool guy. (Gee whiz. I have to be careful here. I may be sinking into dangerous hero-worship territory a la Sid...)

So, it may take him awhile. And he may not respond at all. If he doesn't, I'll take that as his "permission" to continue posting.

Just keep posting. And please do it as much as possible in case you "hear otherwise". :wink:


I intend to.

(Ignoring the Sid reference since they all come with an honorary invisible winking emoticon.) Don't worry about the "hero-worship". Even Darren had to admit that at a fansite it's entirely appropriate to share a fan's enthusiasm, but I suppose it helps to wield the pointed stick from time to time, lol.

BTW whatever you do don't send your interviews in an email to DGM:

To be an enthusiast is one thing, but to blindly hero-worship is another. I'll have none of that here. Remember folks, the only good hero is a dead one...
