Hi Robert, The interview will be up when you get back to me.
De De: Well Hello Music Genius, How are you?
De De What’s going on with your music?
Robert: Well, I’m working on some new material right now. I should preview the newer material online in a month or two.
De De: I heard your song “Wonderful Journey” is climbing the charts with a bullet.
Robert: Thank you very much.
De De:Will you please let me know when you are performing so I can let your fans know?
Robert: I certainly will. I don’t have any new gigs at the moment.
De De: I want to take this back to the beginning to say, I am so honored to be able to interview you. Do you know who you are? Robert Watson! OMG! I’m thrilled
Robert: Yes, I’m thrilled too. It’s been a long time.
De De: Robert, I have to ask you, how do you feel about all the free music downloads I’ve been hearing about? and, how do you stop it from happening to you?
Robert: Most of my songs are set for streaming at the moment. I did the whole “free downloading” thing for promotional reasons but then I decided to stop that because I want people to buy my music. I have a store on Reverbnation and my music is available on i-Tunes. There are some people to expect everything to be free and they don’t realize that it takes money, time, and talent for artists to promote their music. I blame the situation on Napster when people were downloading music illegally in the 1990’s.
De De: I know your mother is your manager therfore, your music career is in perfect hands. Please say “Hello” to your mother for me.
Robert: I certainly will do that.
De De: I’m not going to take up too much of your time because, I know you an extremely busy man, so, What would you like for your fans to know? This is my signature question.
Robert: I take my music very seriously. I want to take my fans on a musical journey where we all become one. Music should be enjoyed by everybody. I don’t care what color they are whether they are black, white, brown, yellow, purple or green. Music is music.
De De: Robert! I want you to know I am a HUGE fan of your music, you are a music genius. I want your fans to spread the word about your music, how sweet and down to earth you are.
Robert: Thank you very much for the compliments. That’s what I want from anyone who loves my music is to spread the word. Plain and simple.
De De: Thanks Robert! For allowing me to interview you. Not only are you my idol, I hope it’s safe to say you are my friend.
Robert: You’re welcome. I appreciate your time for interviewing me.
De De: It’s an honor and please keep up the superb work.
