Dion shows how to give good interview - Signal vs. NoiseOn stories and narratives. . .
A lot of musician interviews wind up with a pulling-teeth vibe where you can sense the artist would rather just let the music do the talking. "Dion Pays Homage To Guitar-Rock Giants," an audio interview with the singer-songwriter on NPR, is the opposite of that. You can sense he can't wait to tell stories about his music and his peers.
It's a great lesson for anyone who's trying to promote something. If you just show up to plug something, it's easy to tune out. But if you give your audience a story they want to hear and/or teach them something interesting, they'll eagerly pay attention.
