Wes Strick interview on the meaning of Adam Lambert
By Juneau, co-author of the book On the Meaning of Adam Lambert
My voyage to see the final Glam Nation concerts in L.A. in December was amazing at so many levels (I apologize for not having written it up yet – my mind was blown to smithereens and I’m still gathering up the pieces). I particularly cherished sharing the experience with Wes Strick and his vivacious wife Marla (aka “Vernon and Gladys”). They are Adam enthusiasts and got right into the spirit. We had a hilarious glamming up session before the Music Box concert, and Marla captured some fantastic photos and videos which I have shared in my Glam Nation Finale post. I interviewed Wes about his reaction to our book and to Adam’s music. I was interested in his thoughts because he is a serious devotee of music, a former rock journalist for Rolling Stone, and terrific writer of screenplays (for Martin Scorcese, Tim Burton, Mike Nichols among others), winner of a 2010 People’s Choice Award for best horror film screenplay, and two novels (most recently Whirlybird).
