Interview With A Legend: Alan Parsons




What do you think about this video?

Sorin Fortiu: Thank You, Mr. Alan Parsons!

Bret B: In No particular order , the highest quality music ever made ,,, Moody Blues ,, Pink Floyd ,,Alan Parsons

zephyrquartz: My gosh Parsons is so humble. He's a fantastically talented genius. I have just discovered that he was at the bottom of sooooo many of the songs I absolutely loved while growing up. It's amazing. I had no idea till just now.

bones22j: I cannot grasp using only 4 tracks. Why not record another 4 onto that 4. And then take those 8 and you could have 16 tracks etc. eventually that's what happened anyway. I think The Beatles were the first ones to do anything like that.

Smigs Sat: Roger Waters wrote "By ignoring the boycott, you are turning your back on a beleaguered people who are desperately in need of your support. Even at this late hour, please reconsider, I wrote to try to persuade Alan to stand with me and Nick Mason and Brian Eno and Elvis Costello and Massive Attack and Stephen Hawking and thousands of other artists world-wide who support a cultural and academic boycott of Israel" Israel just killed 2300 people last summer including 500 children, it was created by nationalists who invade a country, must read SHLOMO SAND.freak alan parsons, he is not even a good artist! 

Panzer4F2: Excellent interview. Thanks for sharing this. Tales of Mystery and Imagination is a personal favourite, but all of his albums had their gems.  

Clyde Barrow: I thought Freedman did a great job interviewing Alan Parsons. Great questions and was he was professional and credible without all the "I am a fan" hype that some interviewers push on the interviewee.

Clyde Barrow: At 19:55 to 20:15 they're discussing something and I cannot understand what they're saying. I think it's about a record player? Something "On Deck?" Can anyone help?  Thanks,,

J Mac: 8 track tapes were the worst format ever, much worse than cassettes IMO.

G Warner: "What do you think of the MP3 format?"
"It sucks, quite frankly"

Best 30 minutes spent learning about a childhood idol

t0dd1971: my dad loved there music he passed in jan of this year God Bless for this upload rock on R.I.P pops

colliecandle: For me, Alan Parsons has been and remains a major influence.  When all the trash and garbage of modern 'music' (I use the word music very loosely in this context) has been forgotten and consigned to the land fill sites (where much of it literally ends up) Alan Parsons Project will still be around and still be vastly appreciated for what it is - REAL MUSIC with life of it's own because it has spirit of it's own !

Kenny Bradshaw: Fantastic.

D' ubserver: Alan you have been such an inspiration, great interview

Andrew Wainwright: The story of Alan Parsons' career (up till now).

Muttley: This man is a legend. Wow, what a great interview and he is so down-to-earth. Absolutely multi-talented. Loved his aside about cassettes lol. That takes me back to the early eighties when I was into electronics and made my own spectrum analyser and stuck it in my clapped-out Ford Escort. I was parked outside my workplace with a few friends and to show them the analyser working I played Eye in the Sky...on cassette ! Of course it opens with Sirius and they all wanted to know what the great music was. Such a great time.

Matt Drummond: modest as hell. Amazing man
