This was recorded in December in Portland. I wish I could’ve been there. It’s a great listen.
“The guy at the back”…“rock bands are like donkeys and they need an ass hole with a whip to stand right behind them…and unfortunately, you can only guess who the guy with the whip was…”
It is a great listen!
Yeah, that was really cool. I liked how reverentially he talked about his R.E.M. band mates. It’s not something that always comes across (maybe due to his donkey-whipper persona?!) but you could hear his love and pride for R.E.M. throughout the interview.
Loved the bit at the end about Bill Rieflin too.
That was excellent.
