[Audio quality is a shocker, due to tape-bleed from the only remaining copy of the interview. As for the line of questioning - like Jeremy at the time - the interviewer was just a teen finding their feet on how to interview International pop stars in 15 minute windows]. Tomorrow - at time of release - the artist who would later star next to Drew Barrymore (in Never Been Kissed) and other film roles they dreamed to be part of turns 49.
