Here's a link to an extended version of Falling James' interview with Manu Chao appears on L.A. Weekly's website this week.  They cover his first L.A. show playing with No Doubt in 1989, to his love of punk rock bands like the Ramones and MC5to the worries of turning into a rock star asshole.

Good stuff.
