Fri 03.14.08 – SXSW Day 8 – Mick Jones is a great live interview, very funny. Photo taken by Ms. Jen with a Nokia N82.
My thoughts on this Interview with Tony James and Mick Jones of Carbon/Silicon from my Twitter stream:
msjen: is wandering around Flatstock before the 2pm Mick Jones panel.
msjen: Amusingly, there was a line to get into the Mick Jones interview. Now that Joe Strummer is RIP, I guess Mick is the elder stateman.
msjen: Tony James on SXSW: “It is amazing, it is like they took Glastonbury and dropped it into a city.”
msjen: Tony James, still hot… Mick Jones has a beer with him.
msjen: Mick Jones on pubs: “They are all gastropubs. The no smoking thing has ruined it for everyone. It is a class thing.”
msjen: Mick Jones is on fire – cracking jokes & acting them out. “I don’t want to talk about anything.” Takes a pull on the beer.
msjen: Mick Jones on what he learned from the blues while growing up: “You have to live it before you can sing about it.”
msjen: Tony James to Mick: “Do you know your username?” Mick: “goingpostal?” Tony to audience: “Mick Jones, the man with no username.”
msjen: Mick Jones on mp3s vs. cds: “The problem is you can’t roll a joint on it or make a line.”
msjen: Mick Jones now is telling the audience Texas history. Tony, “How do you KNOW all this stuff?”
