From the Vault – One on One with Mike Patton
If you only know Mike Patton from the influential alt rock band Faith No More, or even from his days in Mr. Bungle, then you don’t really know Mike Patton. Since seeing Faith No More disband in 1998, Patton has had an eclectic career with a number of projects and bands such as Tomahawk, Lovage, Fantomas and Peeping Tom.
In 2007, Patton took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to us about his life, his career and what it feels like to be in a video game. If you missed it then, here’s a second chance to enjoy it.
