I Interviewed Giorgio Moroder

I interviewed pop/dance god Giorgio Moroder, along with Debbie Harry and Chris Stein of Blondie, and Terri Nunn of Berlin, for an Idolator piece on Giorgio's 10 biggest music moments.

Go and check it out. But first, here's a leftover bit from Terri Nunn, about Giorgio being quite the ladies' man in his day:
"The guy was a full-on playboy. Man, he was a player. And the girls were lining up for this guy. Before he met [his wife] Francisca, he was like, how many girls can I date in a week? And that guy had them lined up. I can’t even tell you how many girls I saw that guy with. We stayed friends all this time, and I’d see him on and off throughout the years, and his life really changed, especially when he had his son, for the better. It’s fun to have the playboy years, but when you have the kind of love affair that happens when you have a kid, it’s a whole different world again. And he shifted 180 degrees when his son Alex was born. Then he was a family man and he was grounded.

"But when I first knew him, dude, that guy was like the quintessential Italian playboy, with the gold chains around his neck and the down-to-here unbuttoned shirt, and the girls. 'Oh, this is Wendy. This is Tifffany. This is Bridget. This is Wanda!'  It was just like parade! A bevy of beauties in and out of the guy’s house. I mean, good for him! He was a rock star and he played it. He enjoyed it to the hilt."
