    Exclusive: Reel Big Fish Interview

    Reel Big Fish was another band that eluded my interviewing grasp for quite some time.  Big tuna, Aaron Barrett wasn’t available for press, but drummer Ryland Steen was.  After a few moments of heartily mocking Crocodile Rock, we launched into it and he was incredibly easy to talk to.
