Post-hardcore icon Ian Svenonius (who has played in the Washington, D.C.-based bands Nation of Ulysses, Make-Up and, currently, Chain & the Gang) landed some impressive interviews for his latest book, Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock‘n’Roll Group. He spoke to Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Kingsmen frontman Richard Berry, and Paul McCartney. They’re all dead, of course (except, perhaps, McCartney), so the author claims they all spoke to him from the beyond. Mary Wells communicated by twisting spaghetti into letters and words. Buddy Holly traces his comments in salt and pepper scattered on the floor.
