Maybe too early to Covet?


This is the third time*, now, that I’ve had reason to talk about Joel McIver on this blog. It took me a long time to work up the nerve ’cause I really respect the guy’s work and his contacts, but now that the dam’s been broken and he and I have even e-mailed a time or two, I’m over myself.

Which means I’m fairly drooling over word that Glenn Hughes wasn’t McIver’s stopping point.

Nope, now comes word that he’s writing a book about someone I’ve actually interviewed. Hung out with, too, if memory serves (and if not, it was his brother Igor who came with us to record stores that day in New York, but I really do think it was Max).


Yes, you Sepultura and Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy fans. Max Cavalera.

McIver himself, in the interview, says it’s a big change for him, particularly to go from Deep Purple to Sepultura/Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy.

Regardless, I still fully expect it to be every bit as amazing as the rest of his body of work.

If I’m not careful, I’m going to work myself back into a state of awe and jealousy…

*You can read the first and second times I’ve mentioned Joel via these links. Have fun!
