Tuesday Timewarp: The Lost Lester Bangs Interview

Lester Bangs, perhaps the greatest rock scribe to ever put pen to paper, died in 1982 and didn't leave much in the way of taped conversations when he passed. That's why this recently uncovered 1980 interview is so important. Here is an hour and a half of Lester expounding on New Wave music, Rolling Stone magazine, modern sound equipment, the music industry, touring oldies acts and much more. Insightful, visionary, never boring-- this is the Professor giving you a Masters-level thesis. So sit back, grab a beer, and click HERE to check out The Lost Lester Bangs Interview. (hosted at

  1. This is so cool. Thank you for posting the link to this interview. I've read both collections of his writings that are out there, but I don't think I've ever actually heard his voice. What a treat to listen to!
