Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Mike East:

@glenn - I was just thinking the same thing (with one less "T")
Avatar 12:30pm Cheri Pi:

Fred let me take a look, one moment please.
Avatar 12:31pm andymorphic:


does he feel limited playing in the stooges? he is usually such a virtuoso and althought the stooges are amazing they are pretty straight ahead?
Avatar 12:31pm glenn:

dear watt: is it difficult to be so fucking awesome?
  12:31pm common:

very excited. I wondered if Mr. Watt remembers a show in philly in 1998 (ish). My band opened for him and Trans Am at the TLA theater. Mike came up to me as I was setting up my drums and talked to me about the beach boys. Good times!
Avatar 12:32pm glenn:

really? i think the stooges stuff is pretty out there, actually.

Avatar 1:16pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

God that's a beautiful bass.
  1:17pm PJ:

With the new Stooges songs, were you presented with completed bass parts by Ron or James, or did they just show you the chords and let you work out your parts?
  1:17pm delve:

Watt..I wanna hear your Jandek tales.
  1:19pm PJ:

Another one for Watt: Your last several solo albums have been concept albums, if not operas. Do you find it easier to write songs if they are centered around certain themes?
Avatar 1:22pm stinkbug:

I think it's ten thirty, we're calling from Providence, Rhode Island. Did you find your shit? You gotta watch the motin' Thurston, your fuckin' memory just goes out tha window.
