Danny Pardoe of Concerts Captured recently conducted an interview with our cowboy talking about some wrestling but mostly music! You can read the beginning below, and read the continue reading to read the rest of the interview.
When you’ve been a wrestling fan for 20 years and you’re given a 10 minute interview with one of your favourite wrestlers, chances are you don’t spend 9 minutes talking about music. Unless you’re me.
Interviewing would be the wrong word to describe my candid chat with “The Cowboy” James Storm. He’s one of only two active TNA Wrestling Originals who has been with the company since it first debuted in 2002. Considering about 4000 miles separated the two of us, this could have easily been done in the local bar or pub (a word that I was surprised that James knew!)
I could talk for hours about music so trying to fit it all into 10 (well, 9) minutes was tricky. Still, hearing James talk fluently about his love for music and 80’s rock such as Skid Row, AC/DC and Motley Crue was a refreshing pleasure.
James has already starred in his first music video with country superstars Montgomery Gentry and his admittance in keeping his options open for “life after wrestling” were honest and sincere. When he was asked to “show up, have fun and drink beer” and then get paid for it then I can understand why he’s considering more in the future.
