Longtime “Extra” TV producer and music correspondent Adam Weissler has interviewed every musician and band imaginable. (He’s chatting with Depeche Mode lead singer Dave Gahan in the photo above.) And he was nice enough to take time out of his busy schedule to discuss his career and his lifelong love of music on this week’s Breakfast All Day A La Carte. Adam talks about growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the ’80s, how he started his career in journalism at a young age attending concerts and contacting record labels to write about bands, navigating the world of celebrities and publicists and his early discovery of important artists including Fiona Apple, Katy Perry and Norah Jones. He shares lots of fun stories about interviews he’s conducted over the years and we swap tales about our toughest interviews. Plus we do a sort of lightning round: first concert, best concert, who he’s seen the most, the best place to see a show in Los Angeles and his favorite LA bands. This one was so fun — hope you enjoy.
