Thoughtful conversations

Scott and Paul have a gift for teasing out compelling insights from songwriters, whether hugely famous or lesser known. And their pre-interview chats are always good for interesting analysis and laughs.

Best Duff interview

I’m a forever GNR fan and this is the best interview with Duff I’ve ever heard. Great job. Informative to hear his writing process and influences.
