Billy Childs - Britny FoxBilly Childs

Two days ago I had a blast interviewing Billy Childs for an upcoming Get the Led Out show at SOPAC in South Orange. We talked for 1.5 hours — the longest phone interview I ever did in my career!

Enjoy my full article here: http://thealternativepress.com/articles/get-the-led-out-will-perform-at-sopac-june-21

Interesting side note, Billy Childs recorded at House of Music in West Orange, New Jersey, with Britny Fox around the same time as my husband’s ’80s hair band Pharoah recorded there.

Their website, which you can find via my article has some cool videos so you can see them performing. They truly are an amazing band. I look forward to the show later this month!

  • Hey Maryanne! Just read your article and I’m jealous of what a fun job you have. Interviewing musicians and writing about them as well as writing about other stuff and getting paid for it. It sounds like a dream job to me! I do a lot of writing for my blog, but I don’t get paid for it. I guess my payment is the hope that I’m inspiring others to go vegan. I love your writing girlfriend!! Celeste šŸ™‚

  • Britny Fox were one of the bands I championed the most back in the day. I’ve been fortunate to have shared some great times with those guys (in the US and when they were in London opening up for Alice Cooper), Billy very much included. Good to know that Billy is still enjoying his music.

    • Ah, Billy spoke of that tour! I didn’t include that in the article because there was so much info to go by, I decided to condense and make it more about Get the Led Out.

  • It was nice to see your interview with Billy Childs. I had the pleasure of meeting him about 12 years ago. He is a true gentleman in an industry that does not promote such positive behavior. I was glad to see that he was still enjoying and playing music.

    • Thanks so much, Terri. He definitely was positive, I was just telling my husband last night he was one of my favorite people to interview because from the get go I felt like we knew each other all our lives. He’s so down to earth.

  • What do you think?
