Sharing Is Caring? Taylor Swift and Other Celebs Who Dated Their Close Friends' Exes
And on this one, he just wrote. A note to self? And we joke about people being self-absorbed, but of course we want them to be that way, because who the fuck else is going to write songs for us, paint paintings, and sacrifice the rest of their lives to examining their own navels, so that everybody else can be entertained?
Movies about artists are always about that shit, bland critiques of them not always being the best people. Who gives a fuck?
Lots of people who are far less interesting than Mozart have bad home lives. But nobody ever explores, why would you paint a painting, or write a song? So I write a bunch of songs, and hope it somehow sinks into somebody.
But the freedom and the insane liberation of it does. People wearing drag, topless women. What he looked like was a genius who had these amazing songs, but it was unclear whether he would ever get his head together enough to start a band. So Adam had to change who he was, to become an actual bandleader, and CEO of our small business, and that was hard for him.
Or you can chicken out and fuck up.
We apologize for the inconvenience...
But we never did. Then, when Van Morrison refused to play at his Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inauguration inRobertson suggested his unknown new acquaintances fill in. More turns for the bizarre followed. At the show, I was the first person of my generation to see Cream play, with Danny my guitar-player on one side of me, and George Clinton on the other.
When we played that night, we sang the shit out of that song. And I walk off the stage and I am gassed, gone like I always am.
He was responsible for us now. Being famous really understates what actually happened to him. I remember what it took to do this, which was not to have any security, and to do a job with no promise of success whatsoever for ten years.
A lot of my friends did it at the same time, and never had success with it, but they still did it. The truth is, everyone can be in a rock band.
But I did it. And a couple of the songs on August And Everything After are incredibly prescient about what happened next. Mr Jones in particular - like, wow, good guess! So the second album seemed fairly simple: We already had songs like Goodnight Elisabeth. Really, it was the first album that was hard. Before it, we sounded like late-model Roxy Music, and there was an artificial sheen on what we were doing.
And then took away Steve. It was kind of brutal, and I still think that record has a sheen on it, that is probably what makes it so popular with other people.
But it was not as raw as I wanted it to be. I was excited at the kind of record we were going to make. Duritz went home early from the August And Everything After tour, suffering from what was diagnosed as depersonalisation disorder, which makes people and events seem detached, unreal and often terrifying.
He quit his Berkeley home for Los Angeles, where his new landlady showed how much his life had changed. He even started tending bar there. Was that an attempt to get back to normality? It was great, crazy creative people. But the staff there were the only friends I had when I moved to LA, and one day the bartender Shannon said she had to go to the bathroom, could I tend the bar?
I made enormous tips for her, so I started doing it every day. It was just a place to be with my friends, where I was comfortable. I heard in another interview that you said you have been writing new music. Can you talk a little about what the new songs are like compared to your other albums and is there a chance new songs may be played at these upcoming shows? I have pieces and ideas and things and chords.
I want to put that record out right away. The last record we did was my favorite record we have ever done. Capitol Records was diligent. They did all kinds of stuff for us.
And it kind of barely touched the culture still. I just want to figure out how to do the next one. I was really proud of that last record, but I want it to make more of an impression that that one did. We got to figure out different things, talk to different people, and try to explore some other ways to do it. Some of the artists performing are Art Alexakis of Everclear and Boom Forest who recently confirmed he will also be the support act on the 25 and Counting Tour.
I know you have had a big interest in indie music with all the Outlaw Roadshow events you have had in the past. You also even cover some indie artists on your Underwater Sunshine covers album. Some of them played on some past Outlaw Roadshows. Some of them are bands we just used to cover. You stumble upon this to that. I was looking around and I stumbled upon this section by Mikaela Davis, her band.
And she was incredible. She was singing and her guitar player was like bowing his electric guitar like the thing rocks. I realize it was like 4 years ago. And I contacted her and she was making new music too and I was floored at how great her new record is. It was so good.
You just have to take the time and look for stuff. On the other hand Sean Barna is playing it. He has played 2 or 3 Outlaw Roadshows in the past and I always thought he was really good. He knocked me out. He is one of my best friends but still he really surprised me this record. I always thought he was good and his stuff is on a whole other level. Art actually had to drop out a couple of days ago.
He missed it and it was written on the day of his show. So he had to drop out, but my friend Stephen Kellogg is replacing him. He comes from the Sixers. He had a band called Colorfinger and I think one of my first jobs for Dave Bryson was singing background on a Colorfinger record. Way back in likesomething like that you know.
But I love Stephen and I would have asked Stephen at the beginning anyway. But I forgot to get him at the beginning. So the Underwater Sunshine is like total pleasure. When you start out in the music business you have to hear it.
Your friends play in bands. You all play int he clubs, open for each other. Your part of like a group of friends you know of music. And then you kind of get signed and it takes off like us. Your kind of part of that peer group. I was never really interested in that. I made a bunch of friends who do what I do.
I come from a college radio background with college and indie bands. And I like that whole geeking out about music kind of people.
Talking to people about music. Like the same things we do on the podcast and an extension of what we will do on the festival. You want to talk about the Underwater Podcast? Yeah sure that works ADAM: The podcast is my like my favorite thing. I remember you mentioning something that you have been wanting to do something related to UnderWater Sunshine.
How did this come about with James and was this one of those things you have been wanting to do for a while? You know we had never really thought about it. And one year he said to me I got way too much material that I could use for these articles. We should write a book sometime or something if you want to. So about two or three years ago we started working on a book. We talked for at least 4 or 5 hours. Talking about music or whatever, anything really. I think I got the same thought about the book that he had for the articles.
I called him up at the end of the year last year when I got back from tour. We should do a podcast. It will be great. I think these conversations we have, I think people would love this stuff. And I was really enjoying it.
As much as I loved the idea of writing the book together and we still should do that. People digest this kind of information everyday in different ways. The podcast might be a better way of doing it and anyway we can still do both, so why not? Sometimes I do tons of research. Like when we did the four week series on punk. I had pages and pages of stories. Other times we just talk about shit. It could be any kind of thing.
