In the vein of Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, and T. Rex, Free Energy will make you want to cut off the sleeves of your t-shirts, soup up your Chevy Camaro, and cruise for babes. We caught up with Paul Sprangers on the road somewhere in the wilds of Arizona to talk about his debut album. Here is some of what was said.
