October 09 – Interview HEXX – A Talk With DAN WATSON (Guitar) – Questionnaire by Stefan

Dan founded Hexx in 1983, hailing from SF California he didn’t have an easy time keeping his formation on the rails, nevertheless, he has managed to keep Hexx alive and kicking to this day. They have recently released a new album “Entangled In Sin” for which I have written a review with great appreciation and pleasure. Respect and dignity for Hexx are completely on my side, I won’t let the opportunity to have a conversation with this skill loaded musician pass me by. I am looking forward to his story so let’s get started right away …

Stefan: Greetings Dan, welcome here at the Metal To Infinity headquarters! First I want to take you to the very beginning of Hexx, you as the founder of the band, with what ambitions did you start this mission.

Dan: Hello Stefan, first of all, I want to thank you for your glowing review of our new album and the opportunity for this interview. For me, it all started when I was a very young boy around the age of six or seven when I went to my very first concert. I got to see my favorite group the Monkeeys perform at the Oakland Coliseum in 1968. Then shortly after that, I talked my parents into taking me to see the Beatles movie, A “Hard Days Night” at our local drive in theater. I knew at that young age what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to play guitar and be in a band. We were very poor but my parents managed to scrape up the extra money for me to start taking guitar lessons at the age of nine. I was able to take a lesson every week for two years until my father left us and I could no longer afford the luxury of lessons. I learned on my own and from my uncle Joe from that point on. I eventually put a band together with my good friend Bill Peterson in the mid-1970s. READ MORE…
