A New Interview with Bill Mallonee

I haven’t read anything about the lead singer for Vigilantes of Love for a while. I met him at Cornerstone in 2003, and recorded an extensive interview. But my opportunity to publish it fell through, and it remains the best interview I’ve never published. Someday, I’ll get around to transcribing it.

I was deeply impressed by Mallonee’s insight into the plight of the artist in a culture that prefers entertainment. And his stories about his own journey were both troubling (for what he’s suffered along the way) and inspiring (for his artistic vision).

Thus, I was delighted this morning to find Part One of Brent Thomas’s new, in-depth interview with Mallonee, here at Colossians Three Sixteen.
