It's percussive; it's kind of interesting, kind of circular. But in terms of other songs, one of my favorite's is called "Tonight's The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel," from . ER: There's a huge number of people who have grown with us. But we've been fortunate in that we've continued to grow our fans through the years.There are people now that are into the band that don't know anything about our early nineties career.
Your whole march to the stage is basically, "Every iconic and influential artist ever has played this building and had one of their favorite shows." It's such a magical place. I think at a place like Red Rocks we all go way overboard to make sure it's awesome. And again, it's like, "Holy s**t, I'm playing Red Rock, singing a Men At Work song with Colin Hay! Then he came out later in the show and joined us on "Pinch Me" as well. We played together in Memphis, so Brian and his wife Varuni came to our hotel after the show and we hung out to the wee ours.
The synergy on that tour, with Violent Femmes and Colin Hay... It's a bit surreal for me that I'm friends with the Violent Femmes guys now, because I wore a groove into that record [ER: Yeah, and I would say, actually, more than ever.
The track listing includes The Bee Gees, The Temptations, Kiss, Kool & The Gang, Earth, Wind & Fire and many more.
The package also includes a nude 3D centerfold, 3D glasses, MR: Yes, you certainly have! I want the song to work, I want the emotional center of the song to be clear, and I totally love that process.
By the time we actually went into a studio and recorded a four-song demo, we had already done five hundred shows. I think I'm a little bit of an anomaly among artists that I talk to though.
I meet lots of people who kind of resent their hits because maybe they drew attention away from the songs that are closer to their heart, that resonate more with them or are more personal to them.
You were being reverent to Neil Young, but you've got millennials who know and discovered your material not just through your iconic hits, but also because you supplied the theme to has been huge for us. That's the moment in the show when I look out at forty thousand people or however many we're in front of, and all the phones come out when we start [the song] "Big Bang Theory." Everybody wants to get a recording of that. That's something I wrote in my shower at the cottage. "I've been asked to write a theme song for a science-y sitcom." Who thought that was going to be a bit hit.
But it was a great experience to write it and working with Bill and Chuck on the song was great. That comes from our relationship with Adam Gardner from Guster, who we've known for twenty five years now.
