FIJM Interview: Billy Bang
July 5, 2008. Posted by Joshua Jackson.
Billy Bang is here in Montreal. He's part of the 25th Anniversary concert for Justin Time Records. Bang has released two recordings related to his experience in Vietnam - both the pain and the healing. Bang spoke with Michael Bourne about reconciliation, from the perspective of an artist and a former warrior. There are some memorable moments in this conversation, including this great line: "We live the music that we perform, and we perform the music we live. There's no separation."
