Interpol's Sam Fogarino: "Miami Is Where I Learned How to Do What I Do"

Before Sam Forgarino provided the beat for Interpol, one of the biggest (and best) indie-rock bands of the past decade, he was a fixture of our city's punk scene.

As a member of one of the area's most underrated bands ever, the Holy Terrors, Fogarino has deep musical roots in Miami. His local experiences were transformative, and the man credits some specific South Florida relationships for his success.

We here at Crossfade spoke with the drummer and songwriter about how the Holy Terrors' Rob Elba, Rat Bastard, Churchill's Pub, and Miami "showed me the way."
