Video: The Heard hits up Reverend Horton Heat about live shows, time travel, and Guitar Hero

As you may have noticed, Wayward is proud to be hosting videos from Lawrence’s the Heard. The latest is the collective’s interview with Reverend Horton Heat. Here’s what the Heard’s interviewer, Nicholas Stahl, has to say about the band.

Every once in a while, I interview a musician before ever seeing them perform in person. With Reverend Horton Heat, it was hard to put two and two together. A musician’s persona on- and off-stage are obviously related, but usually a bit different. I have been ever so fortunate with really great interviews thus far. Everyone has been incredible. When Jim sat down, I felt like he was just another super-sweet dude who has been in Lawrence forever; a bit eccentric, yet extremely kindhearted and humble. However, when Jim took the stage in the psycho-rockabilly outfit, Reverend Horton Heat, he transformed into a super-charged, sharp-dressed, guitar-shredding gentleman.I really hate to stereotype or limit a musician by their appearance, but needless to say, I was blown away by the energy of Reverend Horton Heat.
