Yes, the <INTERFERENCE> tactic does not occur often but when it does, it is -devastating-.

29 ♖b5-b6! <BLOCKS> the line of life-giving force from the Black a6-queen to the <LOOSE> Black c6-knight and (equally important) the <LOOSE> c6-checking focal point.

Sep-10-07  notyetagm: <INTERFERENCE> is based on the principle that I like to call <"-I- BLOCK it, you take it, -YOU- BLOCK it">.

With 29 ♖b5-b6! White <BLOCKS> the line/corridor from the Black a6-queen to the <LOOSE> Black c6-knight / c6-checking focal point.

If Black captures this <BLOCKING> White b6-rook with 29 ...c7xb6, then -he- (that is, -Black-) <BLOCKS> the line/corridor from a6 to c6.

See, this is the whole point of <INTERFERENCE>: White does not care one bit whether there is a -White- piece on b6 <BLOCKING> the line a6-c6 at b6 (White b6-rook) or a -Black- piece on b6 <BLOCKING> the line a6-c6 at b6 (Black b6-pawn) <as long as there is -some- piece blocking the corridor/line from a6 to c6 at b6, cutting off the line of life-giving force from the Black a6-queen>.
