Adam Levy is co-founder of the Honeydogs, one of the greatest of all Minneapolis rock bands. A noted songwriter and musician, Adam is also a social worker, teacher and mentor to many younger Minnesotans. In June 2013, he sat with journalist Kevin Featherly for an extended Think Piece interview on the suicide of his son, Daniel, a promising young artist afflicted with mental illness. Adam talks about the affects of suicide and its aftermath on himself and his family, and how he has weathered his loss by reaching out to other families of suicide. He also shared his thoughts on the cultural and economic shifts that have left many young people feeling out of touch and alienated. This video is the first of four parts of their conversation.
