Chris Connelly

Hazy Eye Music Media is proud to announce the second interview in a series of interviews I’m currently conducting with some of my favorite artists. I’m stepping outside of my comfort zone and have begun picking the brains of some phenomenal musicians.

This time I, Andy Jillson, was fortunate enough to interview Chris Connelly. Chris Connelly is a Scottish-born musician and author who is widely known for his work with Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface, and a other highly influence electro-industrial bands during the mid 1980’s and early 1990’s. He has since released established himself as respected solo artist and singer-songwriter. To this day, Connelly continues to write new material and has released several poignant solo albums.

In 2008, Connelly published a memoir of his early years in the music industry titled, Concrete, Bulletproof, Invisible, and Fried: My Life As A Revolting Cock. The book is “superbly written, funny, irreverent, and a downright scary memoir” at times. I highly suggest you buy the book and take the trip. Chris Connelly is a unique artist with an interesting career/life. I have been listening to his music since I was about 13. Anyway, check it out!
