Why Charlie left and returned to Goldfinger

Goldfinger's Charlie Paulson told me people keep asking why he left Goldfinger and has now returned. If you are one of those people then I guess you didn't buy Black Velvet 49 yet.

My interview with Charlie has that info - and more. You really need to buy issue 49 of Black Velvet zine if you wanna know his Goldfinger story.

A couple of quotes from the interview:

'The day I actually called John and quit the band, Darrin had jumped over his drumkit in rehearsal and started choking Kelly'.

'About two years ago I tried to kill myself. I wasn't in the band at the time but they all showed up. They came to visit me in the hospital.'

(And back in the band, playing Give it A Name fest:) ' I think there were 15,000 kids at one and 21,000 kids at the other... And they knew all the words to all the songs. It blew my fucking mind, really. I thought 'you boys have been busy in my absence!''

Order Black Velvet 49 from one of the online stores that stock Black Velvet. Or visit for more info & the links.
