You all know Dave Hartley as The War On Drugs’ bass player and for his solo endeavor, Nightlands, but today, we refer to him as the great interviewer. Dave’s a bit of a basketball enthusiast and his love for and knowledge of the game has led to his Death Dunk column in Impose Magazine. His most recent installment includes an interview with the ever-animated Paul Shirley, a former NBA pro. With a tag-line of “The NBA bench-warmer and author can’t get fired again from ESPN, but tries in our interview,” Dave never falters from asking the hard questions.
In their lengthy chat, Dave and Paul swap questions concerning both basketball and music. Paul reveals himself to be somewhat of a rarity in the NBA, sharing his feelings of isolation that led him to seek out music. Read the full interview HERE.
