Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

If you've read this week's music feature Sonny Long you may have a grasp on who he is (at least in his own mind). Is he the next thing in Arizona music or just another dreamer? Read on to find out.

While writing this week's cover story, witers Niki D'Andrea and Mike Meyer met with Long at the Kiwanis Park Recreation Center in Tempe to ask him a few questions about his upcoming jam and his attempt at NBA stardom. We'd like to present you with a few video clips from that interview to help flesh out this larger than life character. 

Check out the video interview and eight or so lines of an "exclusive" song Mr. Long may or may not be working on after the jump.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
