“And We Dropped Our Young To A Ragtime Feel”

by | Sep 30, 2006

I interviewed Oliver Crowe of The Stills Thursday night. We sat on cushioned benches atop the outdoor patio at In The Venue in downtown Salt Lake City. I said, jokingly, “You don’t have a Canadian accent.” He said emphatically, “I’m French!”

One of the interesting things Crowe said is “rock was shameful during the Clinton years. Whenever we start bombing people, rock comes back.” I see his point, as all artists have more to say when the country/world loses its way.
