SKF NOTE: I don’t have much to add to my written introduction to Artimus Pyle’s Modern Drummer interview in April 1983 – which is available here.
Paul T. Riddle as co-interviewer was great. His friendship and history with Artimus were invaluable. I’m sure Paul’s presence helped Art feel more relaxed. And Paul could ask questions on topics only Paul would know.
I remember the three of us were sitting outdoors on a sunny day at a small circular table, but I don’t remember exactly where we were. Probably somewhere in New Jersey at either Artimus’s hotel or at a nearby restaurant.
Artimus’s is the predominant voice here. Paul T. is a bit off mic, but still audible. And mine is the third voice.
