Three Questions for Sparks

"Our goal is always to do something fresh within the confines of what pop music is and to keep challenging ourselves and our audience. We feel that there’s a lack of that adventurous spirit in what we hear now. But, you know, we can’t moan about that if we’re not attempting to fill that void that we feel is out there today."

Sparks: Two Hands, One Mouth, All Genius

Can you imagine if you weren’t born into a family with Ron, do you think that you would have still pursued music?

"I don’t know, probably not, because of the motivation thing, having both of us it works really good, the two of us feeding off of each other. So, probably not."

Glam-rock pioneers Sparks still pushing boundaries FROM GLAM ROCK TO DANCE TO CHAMBER POP

"But on this tour, we wanted to get to places where we had never been. This is probably the biggest venture that Sparks has done."

"It's kind of schizophrenic - we're rehearsing for this tour and working on a new project. We're working non-stop [laughs]. The public doesn't see the work that goes into it, but then when it comes out they say, "Oh hey, they have something new." They don't see the year or two buildup before we're actually happy and ready to release something."
