(Mark Dean Interviews): Madness To Creation Podcast Ep. 14: DON MCLEAN

Contributor's Note:  This year marks the 50th anniversary release of the iconic song, American Pie. In celebration of this legendary song, Home Free and Don McLean teamed up for a special collaboration which will be released on Friday, January 29. This is also the first time Don has recorded the song since the original recording. An official music video was released on Wednesday, February 3rd, “the day the music died” -- the day Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. Richardson died tragically in an Iowa plane crash -- 62 years ago. I was very fortunate to be able to chat to the musical icon Don McLean himself for Madness To Creation.  Fans can find Don McLean at the following locations: www.facebook.com/DonMcLean www.donmclean.com Mark Dean: Okay. It's been a bit of a surreal...

DISCREPANCIES with DUB FLOW Converses with Madness To Creation on Mental Health Awareness, “Control”, and 2020!

Editor's Note:  As always, it was a tremendous conversation with the boys out of St. Louis known as Discrepancies for Madness To Creation.  They recently played a show at Spicoli's Reverb in Waterloo and it was a decent crowd for a cold winter night in Iowa, especially when the venue is not the most accessible venue to get to.  In this interview with Madness To Creation, Discrepancies discussed topics ranged from Nickelback to shooting the "Control" music video and mental health awareness,  Fans can find Discrepancies at the following locations: www.facebook.com/discrepancies www.discrepanciesmusic.com Madness To Creation:  Hey guys, it's been about a year since we last talked and now that you have a new drummer in tow, how has the sound changed or has the approach to the songwrit...

Canadian Indie-Pop artist RIOTRON Converses with Madness To Creation on “There For You” and Mental Health Awareness!

Editor's Note:  Recently, Canadian indie-pop artist Riotron conversed with Madness To Creation on his single "There For You" along with the importance of mental health awareness.  Riotron would describe his influences as a mix of the sci-fi film "Tron" along with the 80's musings of Duran Duran, while also drawing influences from Madonna and Phil Collins.  Fans can find Riotron at the following locations: www.facebook.com/RiotronMusic www.twitter.com/RiotronMusic www.instagram.com/RiotronMusic Madness To Creation:  Describe Riotron using a movie title. Riotron:  Well the easy answer here would be ‘Tron’ since the original film partly inspired the name ‘Riotron’ (the first part is from the Duran Duran song ‘Rio’) but I’m going to go with ‘The Last Starfighter’. It’s classic s...
