I spoke with System of a Down lead singer Serj Tankian backstage at Slim’s in San Francisco. A liberal-minded, Armenian Genocide activist, he was genuinely excited to speak with someone from Mother Jones Magazine, and told me he was a big fan of our publication.
Folks from Mayor Gavin Newsom’s office showed up after my interview to give Serj a proclamation, announcing October 28, 2007 “Serj Tankian Day” in San Francisco. He was pleased. Check out my motherjones.com interview with Serj HERE.
