up-Doug_GillardI’ve been very fortunate to interview quite a number of musicians over these last few years. It’s a perk. Especially when the artist is someone you admire.

Doug Gillard is the quintessential indie rock veteran. He’s been integral to a ton of great bands, and in my eyes he stands out as one of those steady performers whose inclusion in a project lends an immediate credibility.

I recently had the opportunity to interview Doug to discuss his new album Parade On, his long and winding career in indie rock and his collaborations with Nada Surf and Guided By Voices. Click through here to read my interview on Bearded Magazine.
