Watt, Really great interview in Bass Player. I thought it was one of the more interesting and intriguing interviews I've read in BP in a while. I've never really listened to the Minutemen to be honest (it just wasn't something I got exposed to) but when I was at a pretty critical point in my bass development I somehow got a copy of Flyin' the Flannel in my hands (unusual considering I was living in a tiny east Texas town with zero culture) and that definitely figured into the development of my voice. Anyway...mainly just wanted to compliment the interview. I appreciate your positive, open vibe and I'm always interested in what you have to say. brad cook ps - How's "the flipper" coming along?!
