In the interim, actor John Mahoney (“Say Anything,” “Frasier,” Steppenwolf) talks to me about his craft and career on my most recent podcast. John will be hosting the 125th Gala Celebration of the Auditorium Theatre on December 9.

Listen to my off-the-cuff interview with Macy Gray. We talk funky spaghetti, her life as an artist and accepting her distinctive voice.

In the interim, enjoy my interview with Smashing Pumpkins Frontman, Billy Corgan. In a candid and warm conversation, we discuss the decline of Rock ‘n’ Roll, what it takes for an artist to get their work out in public, counter culture’s perception of him and, of course, wrestling.
