His Hero Is Gone interview by Dominik Gerszberg (RIP)

Steven DeCaprio from Embers sent me this…
Our close friend Dominik Gerszberg passed away 5 years ago this week. Recently I went through a bunch of old tapes to try to put my life in order and found many of Dominik’s old tapes. In those tapes I found an interview of His Hero is Gone from 1998 that Dominik never published.

I first met Todd and Paul from His Hero is Gone in 1995. My band Lesser of Two played a show with them in Little Rock, Arkansas. Over the years we crossed path’s sporadically. In 1998 Lesser of Two recorded our self-titled album at Polymorph Studios. Dan Rathbun informed us that His Hero is Gone would be coming in to record soon after us. Although Dominik did not play an instrument in Lesser of Two he made a huge contribution as an artist on our record covers, roadie on tour, and in this instance providing his opinions during our recording sessions. Dominik decided to take the opportunity to conduct this interview while HHIG went through the grueling task of recoding multiple guitar tracks creating the epic crust sound they were known for.

Dominik never found the time to transcribe this interview, and so now we offer it in an audio stream which would have been unheard of in ’98.
