Hopelandishly Devoted to You

By now, you’ve probably seen NPR’s disastrous interview with Sigur Rós, in which the immovable object of a reserved, possibly exhausted internationally famous arty band faces off with the irresistible force of vaguely worded but super-earnest questions. Say what you will about the morality of posting the video of the interview, but our guess is a majority of you have, at one time or another, been given the chance to interview someone who made music you loved — which means there have to be some amazing disaster stories out there. Ever been dismissed? With profanity? Thrown out the tape on your way back to the office? Thrown out the album when you got home?
