Joel Gausten – Unified and Alive: Michael Sweet on George Lynch, Healthy Choices and Life After Tim Gaines

Here is a sample of the interview conducted by James Wood. You consistently release great new music. How important is it for you to keep creating? It’s everything to me. Many artists seem to lose their drive and passion for doing it as they get older. They’ll say things like it’s not really worth it to make new albums.
