The Best Drowning Pool Interview… Ever!


“We all love the salad dressing.” – Drowning Pool, on Paul Newman

By Blurt Staff

When Chunklet‘s Bob Shriner set out to interview Stevie from Drowning Pool for the “Philadelphia New Times,” (aka the Philadelphia Weekly), he didn’t necessarily have an agenda – but it’s safe to say he wasn’t exactly planning on asking the usual “how’s the tour going”-type questions, either.

From 9/11 to Beau Bridges, from lasagna meals to Paul Newman, from performing for U.S. troops overseas to pondering what female actresses should play Drowning Pool if an all-girl biopic was ever filmed (hint: the cancer victim from Beaches, or perhaps Demi Moore in G.I. Jane, could handle the bald dude’s role), it’s all comedy gold. Check out the audio tape of the interview at the PW site HERE.

Now we’ve got to get ahold of the tape of Ed Condron’s Kings of Leon interview that he conducted for BLURT last year, the one in which he feeds frontman Caleb Followill plenty of self-absorbtion rope and Followill proceeds to hang himself real good. It was priceless….
