    hey vik, thanks for posting the link, the interview is a great read :)
    good to read that this interview went better than many others with J talking so detailed about things he’s interested in.
    I especially liked J’s description of playing the guitar like a drummer

    Quote:
    It seemed so wimpy at first when I started to play [guitar]. So I started playing loud with lots of effects just to try to mimic the dynamic [of the drums]. Drums seemed a lot more expressive. Trying to emulate the feeling of playing the drums on the guitar – I guess that’s why I played it so loud."

    this might be J’s approach to playing the guitar the unique way he plays it.

    I believe Robert Crumb did this cartoon featured on this album cover:

    cool, great interview … i hope you don’t mind, but i copied the text here as well, so that when that webpage finally expires, we’ll still have a copy of the interview here …

    Thanks for the kind words (everyone!).

    The web-page won’t be expiring – we’re a busy site with 3/4 million monthly visitors – but hey…

    Why? Because I think I’ve been living for almost as many years having loved Dinosaur Jr as I did when I didn’t know who they were! It was too good an opportunity to turn down.

    this may be a silly question, but did you get a chance to see the show the other night ?

    It’s not a silly question. I didn’t go – I already had tix to see Velvet Revolver (!). I sent a reviewer – I posted that review on the other thread. Hopefully next time!
