Thus - as a writer myself - I cannot comment on whether

- Chuck Klosterman

To me, every interview, even if you love the artist,
needs to be somewhat adversarial.

get information that has not been written about before.
- Chuck Klosterman

You wouldn't be hurt by that,
you'd just think it's weird.
- Chuck Klosterman

by committee, and a lot of them are,
were,
or think of themselves as writers.
Part of that is because magazines worry about their voice.

To me, book writing is fun, and I basically just write
about things that are entertaining to myself.

the writer's main motivation is to become friends with the band.

- Chuck Klosterman

You can't swear, you have to use short paragraphs,

It could all change though.
In five years, I could be back at some daily newspaper,
which wouldn't be so bad.
- Chuck Klosterman

they have a pretty successful story.
- Chuck Klosterman
