US3 Interview

Any 90’s music fanatic will remember the song “Cantaloop” by Us3 for its infectious jazz grooves mixed with hip hop. But did you know that Us3 mastermind Geoff Wilkinson got the rights to sample the Blue Note Records catalog for that and other songs only AFTER thinking he was getting sued? And did you know that he later visited the Birdland Music Club in New York City, only to discover it was now a strip club?!? Dave O recently SKYPED with Wilkinson to discuss these things, as well as Us3’s new record, the future of the group and much, much more.

Tony! Toni! Tone! Interview

Tony! Toni! Tone!… For starters… where in the heck did the Bay area group come up with that name? And were they really as cool, funny and generally bad ass as they seemed? Dave O found out the answer to these questions (by the way, they ARE bad ass and HILARIOUS) and many more from recently catching up with D’Wayne Wiggins from Tony! Toni! Tone! via SKYPE. Besides talking about the old days of “If I Had No Loot,” “Anniversary,” “It Feels Good” and “Lay Your Head On My Pillow,” Dave O and D’Wayne also discussed “The House of Music,” which is D’Wayne’s recording studio.

Jennifer Paige Interview

Back in 1998, a true “southern belle” hit the top of the pop charts all across the world, when “Crush” from Jennifer Paige was released. In the United States, the song hit #3 on the charts, but around the globe, it was #1 in four countries. Since then, Jennifer Paige has released several more albums (all of which are great, by the way) and worked with a number of other artists, including Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, on the single, “Beautiful Lie.” Paige recently SKYPED with Dave O to discuss her early childhood obsession with the Atlanta Braves, how she got into music, the Read More …

Londonbeat Interview

Londonbeat exploded onto the United States pop scene in 1991 with the smash hit “I’ve Been Thinking About You,” a song that spent 14 weeks on the pop charts and made it all the way to number one.

Barenaked Ladies Interview

The Barenaked Ladies have won multiple Juno and Billboard Music Awards, as well as being nominated for a Grammy. Barenaked Ladies, from the beautiful country of Canada, are best known for their 1990’s hit “One Week,” but have had a stack of other giant hits, too. Dave O recently SKYPED with group co-founder Ed Robertson to talk about Barenaked Ladies both in the mid-90’s, 2012 and everything in between. Listen to the interview here!

All-4-One Interview

Delious Kennedy of All-4-One is who Dave O calls “the Chuck Norris of music.” That’s because it seems like he’s done EVERYTHING, from helping All-4-One achieve a Grammy and sell 22 million records, to professional photography, to dabbling in the film industry, to writing and doing songs for both his own and others. Dave O recently SKYPED with Delious to discuss these topics, as well as the ones that all 90’s diehards want to know – how did the group All-4-One form, how did “I Swear” come about and what was it like performing with Whitney Houston? A great interview for any music fan to Read More …

C&C Music Factory Interview

When C&C Music Factory is brought up, most people immediately remember smash hits like “Gonna Make You Sweat,” “Here We Go” and “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…” Songs like these helped C&C Music Factory earn more than 35 music industry awards, including VMA’s, AMA’s and Billboard Awards. However, what most people don’t realize is that Robert Clivilles and the late David Cole (hence the C&C) were also HUGE producers/songwriters in the music industry, working with artists like Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and many more. Dave O recently SKYPED with Robert Clivilles to talk about both the C&C days and the days producing Read More …

Everclear Interview

Most know the band Everclear because of lead singer Art Alexakis, who recently sat down with Dave O. Within this interview, you’ll hear Alexakis talk about a variety of subjects, from how many unreleased Everclear songs there are in the vault to the meanings of several of the bands hits. Sprinkled in is advice for anyone going through a tough point in their life, as Alexakis has always been known to share his innermost feelings and struggles with his fans. A must listen for any 90’s music junkie (or anyone who wants to hear from a very inspirational man!).

Divine Interview

Perhaps the most obscure and “lost” 90’s group to have a #1 hit was Divine, which hit the top of the charts in 1998 with “Lately.” Dave O recently SKYPED with both Kia and Nikki from the group, who explained in detail why the trail went so cold on Divine so quickly. By listening to this interview, you will hear one of the more unfair situations of the entire decade, as the ladies had no idea they were being sued by another group already called “Divine” and that they wouldn’t make hardly a penny off of the project. The good news? Well, you’ll just have Read More …

Eve 6 Interview

It was 1998 when Eve 6 became a household name with the release of their self titled album and the single “Inside Out.” The La Crescenta, California band parlayed that success into a tour with Third Eye Blind (“The Bonfire Tour”) and an insane amount of talk show and TV appearances. Following the album, Eve 6 released three more albums which spawned singles such as “Here’s To The Night,” “Promise” and “Think Twice.” Dave O recently was joined in studio by Eve 6 front man Max Collins, who talked about the entire journey, from being signed to being at the top of the charts, from Read More …
