Its hard to call
O.A.R. the next big thing since it has been years in the making.
The band has done it on their terms, first conquering the live
audience, the Internet, and now radio and the rest of the world.
I had the chance to speak with Richard On recently before O.A.R.
sets back out on the road. Listen* as Richard
talks about touring with Matt Nathanson & Robert Randolph,
the new single "Right on Time," & becoming Slash.
1. Are we going to be treated with new music on the upcoming
2. You are going to be doing a co-headlining tour with Robert
Randolph & The Family Band, how is that going to work out?
3. How did "Right on Time" become the second single
from In Between Now & Then?
4. Is there going to be a video for "Right on Time"?
5. You included a mini DVD with In Between Now & Then.
Is there ever going to be a full length O.A.R. DVD?
6. Is that something you are going to be following along with,
a studio CD then a live CD and so on?
7. You encourage fans to tape shows in line with the Grateful
Dead and Dave Matthews Band. How important has that been towards
8. How do you come up with the different teases and covers that
you play during the show?
9. You recently dressed up as Guns N' Roses for a Halloween show,
how was it stepping into Slash's shoes?
10. Who were some of the guys that made you want to play guitar?
11. If you had the chance to play promoter and put together the
ultimate show, who would be on the bill with O.A.R.?
12. How was the Jeep Outside World Festival a few years back,
playing with the likes of Train, Sheryl Crow and EmpyreLounge.com
13. Some bands stray away from the jam band label...what do you
think about it?
I want to thank Richard for taking the time to talk with me.
Keep your eye up for when O.A.R. comes to your town, and be sure
to purchase In
Between Now and Then.
