20 QUESTIONS WITH…
SR-71 Singer Mitch Allan
For those of you who still bother to watch MTV, you might have seen SR-71′s video for "Right Now" in rotation over the last few months. They also had a shit load of airplay with the song. It was co-written by none other than Butch Walker from Marvelous 3 fame…or Southgang fame for you old schoolers. So we thought we’d take a week off of doing 20 Questions with guys who have receding hairlines and beer bellies and do something a little current. Plus these guys are going to be opening up for Bon Jovi’s Spring Tour.
Mitch is up on his rock, sent back his questions promptly, and even sent us a new photo to use!
Mitch & SR-71 Bass Player Jeff
|1. What are you currently up to? This is the only chance to plug your websites, tours, etc.
Our 2nd single, POLITICALLY CORRECT, has just been released and it was #2 most added behind Rage Against the Machine. After only 3 weeks it is already in the top 30 on the Mordern Rock chart. Also, We have just finished up what will be our third single, Non-Toxic and it ROCKS!!! As of now, we are back on the road again. Check our website www.SR-71.net for shows in your area.
2. What do you think about Metallica suing Napster?
I like Napster, for the time being. It has made people exited about music again. This is a new generation of music fans. When we were kids we would tell artists, "I recorded your song off the radio and liked it so much, I went out and bought the record." Today’s the same only the statement has changed; "I downloaded your song off Napster and liked it so much, I went and bought the CD." The idea being you purchase the WHOLE CD after hearing it on Napster, not to download it over the net. Napster only works when the entire CD is not available on it! I definately believe their should be a way to pay some sort of Royalty to the artists who created the music. That is key!
It never fails, each time there is some new technology, the industry screams that THIS WILL BE THE END OF THE RECORD BUSINESS! I don’t believe that to be the case. Very soon some brainiac will figure out a way to incript all mp3s and make both sides of this issue happy…. and himself a millionare.
On the flip side, I commend Metallica to have the balls to present a not-so-popular opinion and stick to it under heavy fire from critics and fans. Although I am a fan of Napster, I understand and agree with Metallica when they say their "choice to or not to participate" was refused. And for that they are completely justified in there lawsuit. No one should have to do something if they are not willing. The obvious copyright violations aside, Napster is still only in existence because of a technicallity, it has no central data base where the music is stored. Because of this, it will exist until a new law is passed to protect artists’ rights. Besides, MASTER OF PUPPETS is the most brilliant Metal record of all time, and for that alone can voice their opinion on anything, anytime, and I’ll listen…THEY ROCK!

We’ll have to give props out to Mitch for saying that he’d assassinate Sebitchian Bach. Can’t say we’ve ever gotten that answer before! That’s a good way to win over the Sludgeaholics! Plus he threw in a little jab about Slaughter fans, so you can never go wrong with that.
