Speaking as someone who has been a fan of Chiodos (and the Chiodos bros.) for a few years now, I can say that this interview was very nicely done.
It shows craig as being intelligent, he knows his shit. I hope people will see this interview and become greatly interested in buying the records & seeing the live shows, because they do put out an AMAZING live show.
Ive seen them all but twice that they've been to California. Their performances are so packed with energy and they have an amazing fans, that you actually WANNA go to every show. Its something different every time.
I mean, have you ever been to a live show where the singer and band mates just seem so unexcited to be there, like they could be out spending money and sexing up groupies or something? Yeah, they suck,......BUT Chiodos....they are all over the stage.
I remember last year at Warped Tour when they played the smart punk stage, a small stage around other small stages, Everyone heard their music start and just ran over.....Craig jumped onto a stand in the middle of the crowd and the crowd just lost it.
Great interview. Like everyone said, it's obvious Craig knows his stuff, which is really impressive. The interview in AP magazine was also very great. Very pleased about the new CD, as well as the older one. I get the opportunity to see them in Tempe, Arizona in November.
I agree with shanen.
since their first record, all they have been is a progression of actual good music.
craig isn't dumb, so whoever said that, is the ignorant one.
don't judge chiodos without actually knowing about them or listening to their music.
i've been a fan since i can remember, a chiodos bros. fan even.
and not once did i doubt they would be this huge.
they make you haters look like fools when you trash talk about them.
they deserve every ounce of gratitude that they get.
i love this interview, because Craig just showed how NOT stupid he is.
he knows what he is talking about.
he can back up anything he says obviously.
so yeah, suck on that.
