Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit

Frightened Rabbit (Scott Hutchison, Grant Hutchison, Billy Kennedy, Andy Monaghan and Gordon Skenehas) had a whirlwind year touring heavily in the US and the UK, promoting their third and most recent album, The Winter of Mixed Drinks.  If you haven’t heard of these guys yet you’re behind the times: they’re well-accustomed at this point to playing sold-out shows, and this coming Friday’s concert at The Paradise in Boston is no exception. 

Their twangy, catchy, upbeat folk vibe, combined with their earnest nature, electrify crowds to create a memorable and extremely personal show.  After being so impressed by their authentic performance last April, I was lucky enough for this second leg to land an interview with frontman and lyricist Scott Hutchison to discuss the current US tour, the creative process behind this most recent album, and the power of coffee & Emergen-C.

Corey Feldman

October 27, 2010 by  
Filed under Interviews

In 1987 Corey Feldman became immortalized on film as one of the beloved Frog Brothers in the cult classic The Lost Boys. Two decades later The Frog Brothers return for the follow up The Lost Boys: The Thirst. Capitalizing on that first bite Feldman is taking the show on the road with a short run of Lost Boys Balls which will feature a screening of the original movie, a sneak peak of the new film, and a live performance from his band Truth Movement followed by a fan Q&A session.

While Feldman’s career exploded in the 80s portraying some of our all time favorite characters from Stand By Me’s Teddy DuChamp to Mouth from The Goonies, it wasn’t always smooth sailing for Feldman. In his own words “it’s been the ultimate of highs, and the ultimate of lows, I’ve had both; sometimes, on a day by day basis.” But throughout his career he’s managed to come out the other side and now everything seems to be falling in to place for him whether it’s with his passion for music and his band Truth Movement or his drive to act.

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Corey before The Lost Boys Ball kick off in Las Vegas. He talked to us about his vision for the event, the highs and lows of his career and his most prized role in life – being a father.
