After receiving some requests from you listeners out there, I’m reposting my two-part interview with legendary singer-songwriter, Crowded House frontman and Twitter star Neil Finn, as one combined bonus episode. Regular programming resumes on Tuesday.
The first Kiwi on the podcast waxes lyrical on four of the most influential albums in his record collection.
Neil and host Jeremy Dylan delve into The Beatles’ “Beatles for Sale” and Neil Young’s “After the Goldrush” and along the way talk about their shared memories of a bizarre Crowded House gig in Hyde Park, covering the Beatles with Paul Kelly, the Finn family record collection circa 1964, Neil’s planned first name-based supergroup, singing in falsetto and why he’s a self-described “perverse bastard”.
They delve in to David Bowie’s “Hunky Dory” and Radiohead’s “In Rainbows”, try to resolve the Bowie vs. Bowie debate, why Bowie is as important to Neil as the Beatles, what Radiohead’s favorite card game is, the time and place to be methodical in rock'n'roll and Neil reveals his next musical project.
