xx Daryl Stuermer Interview for Wisconsin Radio
« Thread started on: Mar 11th, 2015, 5:03pm »

(My first post in this forum!)

I work as a radio DJ in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, on a Classic Hits station called Bob FM 99.9, and we've been giving away tickets to the Mike + The Mechanics concert on the 19th in Milwaukee. So, knowing that Daryl Stuermer was the opening act, I thought I'd see if I could do an interview with him to promote the concert. Lo & behold, his tour manager agreed, and I ended up doing a nearly-43-minute interview over the phone yesterday morning. I gotta say, as a die-hard Genesis/Phil Collins fan, this was quite special.

We talked about how he got onto the tour as opening act, interacting with the others (and noting how he's on tour with Anthony Drennan, who had his role on the "Calling All Stations" tour), how the audience is reacting, his guitar style and comparing that to Mike Rutherford's, a background on writing and recording with Phil Collins (like how he first heard the demos on what was to be "Face Value", plus his songwriting), his use of chorusing effects and choice of guitars in-general (including why he and Mike were using Steinbergers in the mid-late 1980s), what his career would have been like had he not gotten the Genesis gig for the '78 tour, his involvement with "Rock Be Their Voice" and his upcoming solo album. All in all, really, really fascinating and informative, at least to me.

I posted it on my radio station's website; scroll down below "Morning Music Talk" and you'll see the entry. Again, it's almost 43-minutes-long, if you wanna give yourself some time to go through it. Here's the link:

Thanks, that was a really great interview! It was especially interesting to hear about Daryl's and Phil's joint songwriting.

You are obviously a fan of the music, which makes it a so much more interesting interview! (There are an awful lot of spoilt interview opportunities where interviewers have no real clue about the music or the band.)

Thanks for the sentiments! Yeah, getting to interview a musician who I've enjoyed for many, many years sure did lead me to step up my interview game -- especially since it's not often any of us get to ask many questions of our favorite musicians.
