Maximum Ink: What was it like growing up in Georgia? What are your fondest memories from back then? Do you get back to Georgia very much?
Marla Maples: Life was simple in many ways but very full of adventure and friendships. I recall climbing trees, wading through streams, chasing cattle through the pastures and being bucked off a few old paint horses. It was a very healthy and earthy lifestyle. Sports, family, and church were the center of my life in Georgia. I had a musical father who had a band in high school. He went on to do Opera and musical theater in Atlanta. I recall going with my mom to see him perform as the lead in an opera of King Arthur, and I was awe struck. He then became musical director at our Baptist church and chose a different path so he wouldn’t have to be away from me and my beautiful mother. I still have a lot of the same friends I had in school. I just love to visit my 92 year old granddad, my little sister Danielle, my dad, aunts, uncles and a lot of cute cousins in Georgia.

Seether

An Interview with vocalist Shaun Morgan
by Aaron Manogue
May 2011

The melodic, heavy rock ‘n’ rollers who are Seether are back on the road promoting their latest album Holding onto Strings Better Left to Fray. We caught up with lead man Shaun Morgan to talk about their latest number one single “Country Song,” the upcoming record, working with renowned producer Brendan O’Brien, and more.

Maximum Ink: Tell me about your upcoming album Holding onto Strings Better Left to Fray.
Shaun Morgan: It’s basically a culmination of three years worth of writing that represents the best of the 35-40 songs we ended up writing for this album. It started out as a 10 track album, which grew to a 12 track album, and it’s something we’re really proud of.

Black Label Society

an interview with Zakk Wylde
by Angela Villand
May 2011

We caught up with Zakk Wylde while he was in Southern California, hanging out with family, getting ready for the upcoming Uranium Tour that kicks off this month. The Armageddon of Black, as he affectionately calls it, fires up the Black Label “Armada” on the fourth of this month and lands at the Majestic Theater in Madison on May 27 in support of the new Black Label Society album “The Song Remains Not The Same,” out on May 10, 2011.

MAXIMUM INK:
Recently, on your Twitter, you shared a photo of the Misfits Skull with the Bieber hair, with the caption “I’ve got Beiber Fever! And the only thing that will cure it…is More Cowbell!”  I lost it, when it saw that; couldn’t stop laughing.
ZAKK WYLDE:
A buddy of mine sent that, and I was laughing my ass off. Dan Cantor, who is the guitar player with Justin Bieber, actually has a Zakk Wylde Les Paul, so we kept in touch with Dan, and stuff like that. It’s hysterical, we just keep cracking up laughing, because the whole point of it is – you know, Dan’s playing the guitar, and when all the Justin Bieber fans see me, they go “Look at that guy, he must be a fan, he’s playing a Dan Cantor guitar!” (Laughs) It’s awesome, man.  But it’s cool, Dan’s good people, and he’s out there kicking ass with Justin Bieber.  It’s hysterical.

Taproot

Taproot

An interview with bassist Phil Lipscomb
by Aaron Manogue
May 2011

Fourteen years, seven albums, and hundreds and thousands of tour miles traveled, they are a band of many fortunes; Bad fortunes such as lineup changes and losing record labels, and good fortunes including touring with Deftones, Incubus, Mudvayne, as well as having multiple Top 20 singles off of various albums. Resilience is key when considering Taproot. Bassist Phil Lipscomb tells Maximum Ink a little about where he came from musically, and what sets Taproot and their fans apart.

Maximum Ink: Where did you get your start with music?
Phil Lipscomb: For me personally, my start was with my brother. I got my first bass off of him, and he had been playing guitar for years. I just going from there.

MI: You have been touring a lot in the past year or two. What do you do to stay sane when you’re on the road for months at a time?
PL: Well, my dad was in the Air Force, and I’ve moved around all my life, so I really enjoy traveling. I love being on the road. Two or three months is a long time to be on the road. By the end of the tour, I get that, “I need to be home, and I need to be able to relax for a little bit,” feeling. For the most part, we’re all friends, we’ve been friends for years and we get along pretty well. That helps tremendously.

Cake

An Interview with Trumpeter/Keyboardist Vince DiFiore
by Angela Villand
May 2011

Unequivocal success, that’s possibly the most accurate way to summarize what’s happened to CAKE since they began 20 years ago. Their eccentric, almost quirky approach to writing music and lyrics has won fans over across the globe. After a seven year stretch between albums, we’re finding Showroom of Compassion to be nothing short of amazing, which is no surprise, given the three years the band poured into its completion in their own home studio. Vince DiFiore, Cake trumpeter and keyboardist set aside some time to share his thoughts with us on his simplistic gear preferences, the new CD, artwork, and the overall triumph of two decades making music.

MAXIMUM INK:  How is the current tour is going so far.
VINCE DIFIORE:  It’s going great. It’s a good time of year; really nice crowds are out, people are happy to be going to the shows. One comment I’ve heard from people that have been to the shows is that they’re really impressed by the crowd that’s there, and they meet a lot of nice people at the show. Springtime is a good time.

Plain White T’s

An interview with Plain White T's frontman, Tom Higgenson
by Mike Huberty
May 2011

Plain White T’s started in the Chicago area in 1997 when vocalist and guitarist Tom Higgenson, who had been a drummer previously in local high school bands, decided to get out from behind the drum set and take the foreground as a front man and songwriter. After spending years developing their following in the underground scene, they exploded with their 2007 Grammy-nominated Number One single, “Hey There, Delilah.” This winter, they released their latest record, Wonders of the Younger, and have been touring on it since. They’re headlining a free music festival, The Journeys Backyard Barbecue, in Minneapolis over Memorial Day Weekend. We talked to Higgenson about the new record and the tour.
