In addition to great interviews, she said she’s also conducted some unsuccessful ones. Fortunately, her “favorite awful interview” with Goo Goo Doll lead singer, Johnny Rzeznik, wasn’t live. To her relief, it was over-the-phone.
“It was when ‘Dizzy Up the Girl’ came out and they were on tour,” Wilson said. “I’d been waiting in the studio for his call to come in and the band had problems crossing Canada getting back into the United States.”
When Rzeznik called, he was an hour-and-a-half late. He was exhausted, but still willing to do the interview.
“I was excited about asking him a question about co-writing a song with Paul Westerberg of The Replacements and come to find out, Westerberg was one of his big influences,” said Wilson. “All of a sudden, I hear, ‘whoop’ and then muttering in the background. He’s gets back on the phone and said he fell off the bed while he was talking to me. The entire interview went straight into the gutter.”
