The Biff Rose Musical Interview, conducted by Steve Espinola

A few months ago, songwriter / pianist Steve Espinola asked me if I'd be intersted in taping a show with Biff Rose. Espinola explained that it would be kind of a concept show, in the form of interviewing Rose at a piano and having him play songs as well.. Steve would bring his own keyboard and punctuate the interview with it. Having been a fan for some time, I was aware of Biff's great songs and storytelling abilities so I said, "Sure!" Biff Rose can be kind of a wild card interview-- literally anything that comes to mind just rolls off his tongue. Here is "The Biff Rose Musical Interview, conducted by Steve Espinola" in its entirety, with just a few edits for coherence sake.

Among the featured songs:




*Steve Espinola "Famous Famous" (demo)
David Bowie "Fill Your Heart" Hunky Dory
*Mark Eitzel "Proclaim Your Joy" The Invisible Man
*Ramones "Don't Come Close" Road to Ruin
Apples in Stereo "Heroes and Villains" (live) Let's Go! EP

*The Schramms "Deny You"  
*Peter Blegvad "Scarred for Life"  
*Lucinda Williams "Out of Touch" Essence
