TWS 30TH ANNIVERSARY INTERVIEWS # 28 & 27
Posted on March 16, 2012 by Mr. Pickles
Part two of Jason Dill’s and the latest entry to the Transworld interviews, the one and only Stevie Williams.
To be honest after I last posted these, mentioning I was more than happy to take over sharing this absolute gem of a series, I completely forgot about them. Lucky for me and those who love the wheels and wood as much as I do, I am a regular visitor to the home of Transworld magazine during my travels around the net.
Continuing where I left off last time, we have part two of the Jason Dill interview, accompanied by his buddy Anthony Van Engelen, flicking through mags and sharing some iconic shots in the history of skateboarding, Jason shares his thoughts, discussing his terror as a up and comer, skating with the likes of Matt Hensley.
Number 27 on the list is Philadelphia native Stevie Williams. I have never really seen any proper interviews with this guy and its great to see he is a lot more humble then I had expected. The most interesting part of both the Jason and Stevie interviews is that they both pretty much discuss the same thing. It would seem they both agree a huge influential part of their lives was the time skateboarding was developing at EMB (The Embarcadero plaza). Located in San Francisco, the famous red bricks were known for the likes of inspirational skaters such as Mike Carroll and Jovantae Turner as mentioned in the video, however like most legendary spots these days, is now long gone.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
RIP EMB & LOVE PARK.
