I’ve gotten a great response from readers since announcing my Portraits of Punk interview series last night. I’ve received dozens of emails, tweets and facebook comments from people who want to be interviewed, or people nominating others to be interviewed. Yesterday was also the second-busiest day Journalator has ever seen, traffic-wise.
As a preview: I’ve got a lead on a guy who was tour manager for Anti-Flag and allegedly witnessed a near fistfight between Henry Rollins and Tim Armstrong. Another guy in Boston said he’s a 41-year-old nonprofit employee and self-described punk-rock lifer. An acquaintance of mine wants to talk about the intersection of radical queer culture and punk rock.
You guys are making it easy for me to stay pumped, which I’m sure will be important going forward. Thanks for your kind words, support and enthusiasm for this project, especially considering the first interview hasn’t even been posted yet.
Lastly, like I said yesterday, if you fit the bill and would like to be part of this series, let me know in the comments or email me at email@example.com.
