Sound Opinion co-hosts, Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot were invited to appear on Conan the day after the Grammy Awards were given out. The late night TV program has given exposure to many an up-and-coming band. But Kot and DeRogatis were asked about what happens when bands aren’t too happy with their criticism. Kot had a funny story about a phone call from Bono after a particular review.
They also bantered about bands they don’t ‘get.’ We all have them. The guests were pretty on target with my own tastes – I’ve wondered why Dave Matthews is a draw.
Kot shares the video segment along with what they talked about during commercial in his Chicago Tribune column, Turn It Up. Great job, Greg!
