Adam Ant

Wow, for the second time in 6 months....a conversation with pop culture/music icon Adam Ant! His new album "Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner's Daughter" has been released (in fact a double-vinyl edition came out just this week). He is currently on tour. He played Chicago back in October but in this conversation spills the beans about coming back! Listen to find out who Adam would like to play him in a movie about his life, how he suprised everyone (including himself) by moving to Tennessee, who he idolizes, if/when his documentaries (yes, there's TWO) will be released, if he'd get plastic surgery, and more. One very lucky fan, Sandy Maxx, even got to sit in on this interview. I must apologize for the poor sound of my mic (technical issues arose but I didn't want to cancel this interview!). Adam sounds fine, though! :)
