[Danny Canak] How did you get your start in the music industry?

I started off by writing live and CD reviews for Inpress Magazine in Melbourne while I was studying at Uni. I was doing interviews before too long and I got my job at Roadrunner by answering an ad in Beat Magazine. So I guess you could say I got my start from street press - it's essential reading if you want to keep up with what's happening in the local industry.

[Danny Canak] Best part of the job:

Hayley Wilson Being able to work creatively with music and artists and meeting great people with 1000 stories to tell about their experiences. It's a great feeling to go to work every day and love it.

[Danny Canak] Worst part of the job:

Hayley Wilson It's difficult to keep your work and social life separate with so many events and festivals happening so I guess the worst part is when people try to be over familiar because they think they will be able to get free CDs, tickets or access to artists by being your friend. I don't mind doing a few favours for people but it's pretty obvious when someone just wants a freebie.

[Danny Canak] Any interesting experiences you can share?

Hayley Wilson I guess running a magazine (OUTSIDER Magazine) was a pretty interesting experience I've had. Being able to see things from both sides of the fence simultaneously really helped to gain some perspective on what objectives different areas of the industry have.

[Danny Canak] Favourite CD of all time and why:

Hayley Wilson Probably Led Zeppelin 2 or Physical Graffiti. Why? Because Zeppelin are the masters. Even though they were making music before I was even born, they never get stale or dated. You won't find a decent musician this side of Mars that hasn't been influenced either directly or indirectly by Zep!

[Danny Canak] Tell us about the best live show that you ever saw?

Hayley Wilson There's been a few. It would have to be a toss up between The Cult and Soundgarden side shows from the Big Day Out in the '90s or Slipknot at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney in 2000. Favourite bars/clubs/pubs to hang out in?

Hayley Wilson Cherry Bar (Melb) Ding Dong (Melb), Iguana Bar (Syd).

[Danny Canak] In the current climate, what advice would you give to someone looking at getting involved in the music industry?

Hayley Wilson Just do your research. Keep an eye on industry columns in your local street press and pick up the odd copy of Music Network and see what's going on so you are informed and up with everything when the opportunity comes your way.
