A few weeks ago I had the tremendous pleasure of meeting Alan Schmidt, a new best friend I’ll never meet. We enjoyed our conversation so much that we’ve kept it going, and the more we chat the more fascinating I find him.
Our Man Schmidt is as funny as they come, and his behind the scenes stories of album covers both legendary and not are treasures.
The Boomtown Rats thought so, too, or at least they thought enough of our ramblings regarding the Mondo Bongo and Fine Art of Surfacing sleeves to pick up the interview that we put together for them.
Check it out for yourself. It’s a fun one: http://www.boomtownrats.co.uk/the-boomtown-rats/interviews/181-alan-schmidt.html
