Past Interview Subjects Nominated for 2016 Grammy Awards.
The 2016 Grammy nominations were announced today. Several of my past interview subjects received nominations this year. I choose most of my interview subjects. If I interview an artist, it is because I greatly respect their work. It is always a great honor to interview so many diverse, talented people.
