NYPL Brant Mewborn Rolling Stone Interviews

RtBE loves it when the day job and hobbies combine and they come pretty close with Lena Deresh's blog post regarding NYPL's collection of Brant Mewborn Rolling Stone Interviews.
Turns out there is a great collection of Brant Mewborn's interviews at the Library For the Performing Arts.  Here's hoping we can get there soon and listen to some of them, as people like Tom Wolfe, Ringo Starr and Madeline Khan must be great listens.

On a side note here is a nice time capsule film that video artist Nelson Sullivan recorded while visiting Brant in his Rolling Stone office back in 1985 as Brant was leaving the publication.

Really neat piece of history, and glad the NYPL is involved.
