A career-spanning interview with Giulio Bordin for the Italian site Live Rock.
On the House of Blues site. A 12-minute interview (which performs pretty well on dial-up connections) that, while focusing on the tour they were then currently doing with Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Horsnby, et.al, covers some other territory as well. Well worth watching for the moment when David describes the proudest moment in his musical life.

Discography with capsule album reviews by Richie Unterberger & others. Helpful to anyone new to the band, but someone ought to point out to reviewer James Chrispell that Kaleidoscope hardly came out of the "San Francisco scene."
