  7. Ok I had to switch browsers to watch it >.> But it was good, I agree with everyone else. I think so far this is the best series out of the four interviews.

  8. This was great, I loved how you asked follow up questions and actually had a conversation with him rather than just asking question after question.

  10. damn Brandon, Fucking good job man. Best of the bunch by far. So far its really smooth and feels more like a interesting conversation rather than a blah blah blah interview. Can't wait for part two.

  11. Great job! Am I the only person who wants to go make a CD just so I can invite Jade to play on it? ;-)

  14. Best interview. This is what happens when a 10 year old fan interviews AFI.

  15. Pablo, I think you mean a fan of 10 years ;)

  16. Amazing interview, really informative and definitely the best out of the four. When the next album comes around you should look into interviewing the other three, you managed to get a lot of juicy information out of Jade and I'd love to see your interviewing magic applied to Hunter, Davey and Adam!

    I'm so excited for part two! Are you willing to drop any hints on what will be discussed? I know Blaqk Audio is one of the topics because of a previous comment you made, but I'm eager to know more haha.

  17. Wow thanks guys :) The next part we talk about the recording studio, the loss of Jerry Finn and lots of Blaqk Audio stuff.

  22. I would make a record just for him to be a guest guitar on it too :) But otherwise yeah great interview. What I want to know is will we ever hear Weight of Words or The View From Here? I'm curious to what those sound like, and I think it would be stellar just to get to hear those songs, and so curiousity will stop eating me from the inside out.

  23. We'll never hear Weight of Words. Possibly The View From Here but as time goes by it will be more unlikely.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Like Fainting Spells, I'm sure The View From Here will be a b-side on the next album. But I have no hope for Weight of Words :)

  25. Excellent interview, Brandon. You seem comfortable and professional. I love your focus on the songwriting process, over Jade's time with AFI. Insightful questions lead to thoughtful, non-reflexive answers. It's refreshing not to have to sit through questions that have been asked time and time again ... I'm sure Jade appreciated that, as well!

    Now to the fangirl thang: ZOMG! Jade has the most wonderful hands!

    In all seriousness ... BRAVO! I can't wait for Part 2.
