MADISON DALEY: Rock Star in the Making
Madison Daley (age 18) is the daughter of Michael Daley, a.k.a. the “Grim Weeper” of the band Weep With the Willows (W3), and critically acclaimed actress Jessica “Jacie” Redinger. For the first seventeen years of her life, the connection between Jacie and Madison was unknown, and Madison was commonly referred to as the “Basket Baby” because she was left in a basket on her father’s doorstep as an infant. Now that the secrets are out, Madison is determined to blaze her own path as an up and coming rock musician. Her band, which is yet to be named, is currently in production of their first original album.
Madison, thank you for joining us at UR Teen Magazine again.
Thank you for having me!
We’re sorry your sister isn’t able to make it at this time. Can you tell us a little bit about the recent drama that separated you?
I’d rather not get into it. Let’s just say our previous “bond” might not be everything we claimed it was.
Understandable. After all, you only just met a few months ago.
Before we talk about your new music venture, we’d like to know how your relationship with your mother is progressing since the last time we talked.
Unfortunately, her cancer is progressing faster than our relationship is. I don’t think I have much time left with her.
So sorry to hear that.
How are you adjusting to the thought of losing your mother so soon after finding her?
It’s hard, but at least I know she’s sorry for what she did. It would be much harder had I not found her until she was gone. My mission to find her at all costs paid off in the end.
Well, that’s good to hear. Now, tell us more about this band of yours. What sort of music are you currently producing?
Our music is a mixture of metal and punk. Think punk vocals with metal guitar riffs and drum solos. It’s actually very cool.
That sounds great! Who is your biggest inspiration for your music?
Well, my dad, obviously, but after him I’d have to say Avenged Sevenfold. I’m obsessed with their music and know how to play a ton of their songs.
Avenged Sevenfold is a great band. Do you have any other music influences?
Evanescence, Green Day, Three Days Grace, Seether, Disturbed, and Breaking Benjamin just to name a few.
Excellent. We look forward to seeing where you go from here. Any comment on the recent scandals you’ve been involved in?
Not on your [expletive deleted] life.
We didn’t think so. That’s all the time we have for today. Where can we follow you for the latest news?
I’m sure the paparazzi will hunt me down wherever I go.
