Years ago, people asked Nick Cave questions at their peril. In 1988, one NME hack riled him so badly that Cave started swinging punches, tried to steal the interview tape, and screamed: "You're nothing but a shite-eater!" Today, though, you can ask him anything--literally--and he'll answer on his Red Hand Files website. How do I cope with losing someone I love? Should I bring children into this world's Boschian hellscape? Do you enjoy stage magic? Every warm, generous response makes Cave seem more like a kindly agony uncle instead of the larger-than-life construct of yore.
