Sitting in Sasquatch's media tent, it's relatively easy (and very fun) to eavesdrop on *real* music writers interviewing bands about their music. I readily admit I'm not a *real* music writer—it didn't occur to me that I could line up interviews with bands. (Politicians, yes. Bands? No.)
But even so, I bet I (or anyone with a mouth) could come up with better questions than these few I overheard over the course of two days:
"Can you describe your sound?" "If your music were a man, what would he say?" "What do you think fans would be most interested in knowing about you?"
Man oh man, if that isn't delightfully lazy journalism, I don't know what is.
