This was the second interview I had with Rivermaya. The first was about two years ago at Dish where I had a long chat with former frontman Rico Blanco. I was actually prepping a story on the band's Atenean members -- Blanco and guitarist Mike Elgar -- when Blanco left. So the story changed to "where are we now?" The story should be out soon now that a new member has been announced. Congratulations to Jayson Fernandez.
Thanks to the band (Mark Escueta and Mike Elgar had a lot of excellent insights that should turn up great for the story) and to their manager Liza Nakpil for this.
