SHATTERED DESTINY – Vocalist Interviewed By Louis Theroux for BBC 2 Show


Popular British journalist Louis Theroux’s latest documentary is set to air on June 10th on BBC 2 in the UK. One of his guests will be Shattered Destiny main man JJ.

During his segment, JJ discusses the future of media in the digital downloading age, how that affects both the porn and music world and his work in Shattered Destiny.

When asked on his participation in the show, JJ had this to say:

“Louis called me and we were talking about things.. and how much has changed in the 15 years since we met. We talked about the drastic changes in media due to the digital age. I explained that music at least holds meaning to me. So even though the music industry is heading towards financial problems, at least I still have a passion for it.”
