    ...But I got into your music through the song "Corona" being used as the theme for MTV's Jackass. After I found out that the theme from that show was a minutemen song. I went out and bought a couple of albums which brought me up to date on what the hubbub around your fat Telecaster Bass tone and playing was all about.

    Now I was wondering that I would certainly not be the only one finding out about you and the minutemen through Jackass. Are there people coming up to you at gigs asking if you could play "Corona?"

    Well, Watt's been touring with a keyboard player lately, and that song has a very very distinctive guitar riff, so I don't think it's being performed live.

    There are a lot of live Minutemen videos here

    They did that song live a lot when D. Boon was still alive.

    Sure they played corona with the organ too.
    I saw the secondman's show in Florence.....Yes corona without guitar is really strange but still an icon.

    MP3s?


    Because that would be a trip to hear.
