Fast Times Honor Roll

Comments Off

Cameron discusses the Fast Times pedigree of Oscar winners with the San Diego Union – Tribune (the latest member of the Oscar club is now Forest Whitaker).

Saluting The Honors Class at Ridgemont High

He had just landed his first part in a movie, and as Forest Whitaker headed back to his car after the audition, the film’s director glanced out a window to see the actor “skipping and sort of jumping up in the air” as he crossed the Universal Studios lot.

Cameron talks with Chris Marlowe of the wonderful UK music magazine, Mojo. This interview is from the August, 1995 issue. I’m not sure what Cameron was doing in the UK at that time (since this was between the release of Singles and Jerry Maguire). He talks about the early days, Fast Times, Singles and his love of music. It’s the only Crowe interview I’ve located for 1995.

Rita Coolidge Breaks Out

Comments Off

anytimeanywhere

Cameron talks with singer Rita Coolidge about her career and marriage to musician/actor Kris Kristofferson in this Rolling Stone interview from June, 1977. The album mentioned in this interview (Anytime…Anywhere) was a break out smash for Coolidge. Coolidge and Kristofferson were one of the big power couples of the ’70s. Coolidge and Kristofferson released one final duet album, Natural Act, in 1979, but their marriage was on the rocks, and they separated by the end of the year.

Coolidge never repeated the pop success of Anytime…Anywhere, but she did continue to land hits on the adult contemporary charts through the early ’80s.

Interview Magazine – Thom and Nicolette Mount

Comments Off

interviewsept1985

Cameron sat down with independent movie producers Thom and Nicolette Mount for Interview magazine back in September 1985. Thom had supervised such films as Car Wash, Animal House and Crowe’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High. It’s interesting to look back now at some of their comments nearly 20 years later. Topics include the studio system, money hits vs. cultural impact and how cable television is the future. Thom’s comments about cable television and MTV are particularly insightful and even foreshadow the Internet. Thom has stayed busy working on such projects as Natural Born Killers, Bull Durham and Night Falls on Manhattan.

Poco – The Next Big Thing

Comments Off

poco

To welcome in the new year, I thought you might want to read Cameron’s first full article for Rolling Stone. His profile of rock & roll band Poco chronicles their four year since being dubbed “The Next Big Thing”. Although never making it big, Poco has maintained a devout following over the years and continued to make albums with a revolving door of musicians. They even released a new album late in 2002 on their official site.

Michelle Phillips

Singer/actress Michelle Phillips (the Mamas and the Papas) was profiled by Cameron in the February 23rd, 1978 issue of Rolling Stone right before the release of her (one and only) solo album Victim of Romance. After the solo album, Michelle focused primarily on her acting and continued to appear on TV shows throughout the ’90s.

Johnny Nash – Zoo World

Comments Off

Cameron wrote for a publication called Zoo World in the early ’70s. I’ve managed to track down an April, 1973 interview he did with musician/actor Johnny Nash. You might remember Johnny from his big 1972 hit “I Can See Clearly Now”.  Although his popularity in the U.S. dimmed, Nash returned to the UK charts in 1975 with his number one cover of the Little Anthony classic “Tears on My Pillow,” followed a year later by another Sam Cooke cover, “(What a) Wonderful World.” He gradually retired from performing during the coming years. “I Can See Clearly Now” has been covered many times, including versions by Jimmy Cliff and (one of my personal favorites) Neil Finn.
