5 Van Interviews
1. Rock's Back Pages Library has a lot of reviews and interviews about Van. It's a fantastic site. No need to thank me if you've never heard of this site. Just enjoy all the Van stuff.
2, van-the-man.info site is Michael Hayward's old site preserved somewhere else. Looks like a few people cached the site to preserve it at various places around the internet. A number of great interviews exist here but all this stuff may go one day. Preserved sites like this often don't last. Already some of the links don't work and the whole thing only goes up to 2008 when it stopped.
3. The Los Angeles Times from October 31, 2008 included an interview mainly about the new interpretation of Astral Weeks. It was titled "Van Morrison's full Q&A on Astral Weeks". For the interview Van responded by e-mail to questions from Times staff writer Randy Lewis.
4. Paul du Noyer's site has several interviews of Van including the infamous Spike Milligan interview that appeared in Q magazine.
5. Cameron Crowe's interview appeared in the May 19, 1977 edition of Rolling Stone.
