The Twilight Examiner Interviews Phil Taylor

The Twilight Examiner, Amanda Bell has an interview with Phil Taylor, Bobby Longs manager. They discuss his company, Up All Night Music & his clients among other things.

One of my favorite parts in where she asks Phil what it is about Marcus Foster, Robert Pattinson, Sam Bradley and Bobby Long that have made them so "well-balanced and cooperative" with co-authoring songs together like "Let Me Sign" and "Never Think" (both of which are featured on the "Twilight" soundtrack). Phil answers, "I think that Rob and Marcus had known each other a long time and enjoyed playing music together, and, as I say, they are both very good at it. Then they met Bobby and recognized that he is also a great musician and that he comes from a very similar musical background to them. Once introduced, they were bound to become friends. That's why I introduced them, I mean, that's how you create a scene. Also, people need to remember that those songs were not written for the film, or any film, but were written by a group of friends who write songs together and play them live at an open mic night each week. There was never a plan. They just love writing songs and playing them together."

Go HERE for the full interview. Amanda has been a very busy bee & has a lot of great articles so be sure to check out her other stories too.
