Before we shoot interviews I like to grab some alone time with the artists to review the questions and make sure nothing is “off limits.” Considering the fine line I walk between being a total ass and the artist’s need to not alienate their fan base, I’d say I got away with more than I anticipated in this interview.
I’d been promising Sergio that I’d take him out to a vegan meal in Atlanta for years. That’s where we did the pre-interview. Unfortunately, my body isn’t good at handling vegan food. I had to go to the bathroom multiple times. Then, the audio screwed up. The fact we managed to pull off a final cut of this interview is nothing short of a miracle.
Also, Sergio was genuinely mad at me for the hamburger thing. I think it saved the day. – Alex
