14. Interview with Shae Haley @ Ruisrock, Turku, Finland - 8th July 2018
So, Shae blessed me with an interview this weekend while we were all in Turku, Finland, for Ruisrock (a yearly Finnish summer festival). For those that follow N*E*R*D, you'll know that Shae doesn't really do much press, so this really was a surprise.
I'll keep the details here brief as we'll talk about this on an up-coming podcast, but Shae was happy to chat about pretty much anything - to the point where we went long, and when he heard we didn't have AAA passes for the show, he promptly made sure they were sorted out for myself, my son and my girlfriend - a legend and a gentleman!
This led to Brent showing us around backstage, us getting to hang out, and Shae and Pharrell coming to say hello and talk to us. And, yes, I nearly choked up when telling Pharrell how much this all meant to me!
Below is the audio of the interview. I'll publish a link to a photo album at a later date.
Also, a huge thank you to Brent, again, Shae, Alex, Cori, Mike, Pharrell, Chad, and all of the i am OTHER staff/dancers/band who were so friendly and made us all feel so welcome!
