BLEND // Interview // 19 Jan 2004

As their first album release, ‘Act One’ (EMI Records) hit the stores in December 2003, Lebanese rock band BLEND were invited to the studios of Radio Lebanon 96.2FM to discuss their musical itinerary, the making of the album, and the difficulties of making it solely as a musician in Lebanon’s unforgiving, commercial-oriented music business.

The various members of the band who were present in the studio that evening (singer Jad Souaid, guitarist Miran Gurunian, drummer Jad Aouad, and producer/manager Philippe Tohme), also presented a selection of some of their musical favorites.
