Andy Macdonald Interview
January 31, 1998
Interview recorded at the Warped Tour 1998, Hawaii.
50-50 : Where did the flyaway helmet go?
Andy Macdonald : Oh that got old, i threw it away, though i used to be sponsored by them i used to get flyaways for free.
50-50 : your sponsored by powerbar, what's that like? Do you eat those things?
AM : I don't have to eat them, but i do.
50-50 : Do they cover the dental bills as well?
AM : Powerbar... nah, but powell does . Now that's a real skateboard company.
50-50 : Are you a jinx around the industry because every little company you ride for has gone bust?
AM : Well that's just what happens when i leave companies, you see i leave then they fold. If you think about it though 'who' had a pretty sick team, Donny Barley, Dan Drehobel, Matt Pailes, Jamal Williams, myself. It's so hard to make money making skateboards especially if your an east coast company.
50-50 : I saw this thing on the internet called the Andy Mac Newsletter, what was that all about?
AM : What...! I don't know anything about that, was it about me? or was it just some Andy Mac guy? I don't even go on the internet, i just write my e-mail... Don't believe everything you read.
