This week we bring you Anil Prasad’s Innerviews. The book features detailed interviews with twenty-four renowned musicians who share candid thoughts on the joy and pain of the creative process, their careers and aspirations, conflicts and collaborations, and the realities of today’s music business. Artists profiled in the book include Björk, Stanley Clarke, Ani DiFranco, Béla Fleck, Bill Laswell, John McLaughlin, Public Enemy, David Sylvian, and Tangerine Dream.
But these aren’t just your typical Rolling Stone interview that seem designed to make you question whether or not you should go boil linguine instead. This is a writer who truly loves music. Mr. Prasad’s interviews are thorough and thoughtful. His interview with Joe Zawinul, especially, is a thing of real beauty and will take you to places quite unexpected.
