    Great interview! Thanks! (So, is Bruce Spence next! 😉 ) After watching Craig for so long and now hearing him “au natural” – he does a really good American accent!

    “Oh we are TRYING very hard to get Bruce to chat with us… TRUST ME! I want to ask him all about Mad Max!!! ;)”

    Springsteen was in Mad Max??? I need to go back and watch that. Totally missed him.

    Oh you mean that other guy…….never mind.
