I was lucky enough to be chatting online to Clifford Hoad, drummer with KINGS OF THE SUN and THE RICH AND FAMOUS recently. He very graciously agreed to answer a few questions I sent to him and to allow the “interview” to be posted on the ROCK RADIO NI website.

(AUGUST 2013 - UPDATE - New interview posted with Clifford following the release of the new album "Rock Til Ya Die" - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/interviews/1292-ni-rocks-interview-with-clifford-hoad-of-kings-of-the-sun.html )

OKAY - I've just about had enough I can take. I don't watch X-Factor, or any of the other so-called reality shows masquerading as entertainment.
