Gaslight Anthem's Fallon Comes Clean

The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon Comes Clean” is my latest and most in-depth work with TGA frontman, Brian Fallon. The story also appears in the December issue of The Red Bulletin. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with this band since 2007. I got to do their first ever review for a glossy magazine for Sink or Swim and Ann Marie did one of their first photo shoots just as The ’59 Sound was releases, one photo of which appeared in Spin Magazine. I spent a few days with Fallon in the city this summer between his recording acoustic work, a few shows, and a new photo shoot. This particular feature is the result of a very candid talk over pizza in Chelsea. We got to chatting about how the Gaslight Anthem almost broke up, but found a way to move forward. And the story developed following their much talked about show at Chelsea Piers, while I was writing it. It was a pretty interesting time and I am grateful to Red Bull for the opportunity to tell the story.
