A throwback Thursday does not get any better than this. Props BMX uploaded their Colin Winkelmann interview from issue 40, which is by far one of my favorite video interviews of all time. It was a favorite then and still is to this day. Featuring Leigh Ramsdell as the talk show host Larry Ramsley and Eugene and the Midnight Band (Ramsdell & Hal Brindley). Be sure to make some time to sit down and give it a watch. You'll be happy you did. RIP Colin.
