"And all the blood—your blood—and a broken arm and five broken ribs later. And the host still died.

Of course they did. Of course they did.

Because the host dies anyway. The host always dies anyway. And if you try to take the host, the beast will take you.

You think this as quickly as possible. You think this whole scenario now in one second, or two, because you’ve trained yourself not to hesitate. You don’t hesitate. You barrel ahead. You can’t not barrel ahead. So you consolidate all these thoughts into one—one moment. One second. Or two.

But you still think it."

Rosemary was honored recently to step in as guest-interviewer for the UK / US music website Louder Than War, and speak with with musician and engineer, the remarkable Stephen Linsely. An RIAA gold and platinum award-winner for album production, Stephen has worked with Doom, Public Enemy, Michael Lockwood, and many more. But he is probably best known as the powerhouse bassist of the groundbreaking musical group, The Jim Carroll Band.

In part one of this informative interview, Stephen talks candidly about recording methods and his newest project, his time in The Jim Carroll Band, his friendship with Jim, and the drugs that plagued the music scene during his performing years:

"Basajaun may be a tale about a girl and her rabbit, but beneath the beautiful prose it is a book about the acceptance of death, the importance of all creatures, and the endurance of nature."
