We ran a competition, in association with Dragon, to interview and have brunch with Sunset Sons when they were in Newquay for the Boardmasters last week (they also got to see the guys live and got Dragon swag (you can win some too, comp at bottom of post)).
The winners, George (sat next to Skindog in the vid) and Meg (on end of sofa with Pete) dined at the Headland Hotel with the boys, Ben Skinner and us.
After various combinations of bacon, egg, sauce, coffee and juices were consumed we sat down for possibly the most tangential, wide ranging “interview” ever. The publishable highlights are below.
There are some deep insights on tattoos, lyrics, the pressing issue of what duvets are measured in. Not to mention getting the low down on Rob’s bad ass rock star behaviour towards his equipment and Rory’s previously unknown ninja tambourine skills. Also we learn that Jed can multitask, unlike most men, and Pete is all but doomed if he ever shaved his moustache of power…
Huge thanks to the guys for being total stars and the Headland Hotel for tolerating a raucous breakfast shift, made that bit sweeter by a bonus singing of happy birthday by the guys for a young girl at the next table with her family. Oh and in case you’re wondering the grom at the start is one of the mini-Skindogs 🙂
The interview starts after the two minute mark but the duvet talk at the start was too good to bin. Being warm in a tent at a British festival being a very important topic after all.
