Not sure if it's been posted, no time to research it. One of the best interviews in recent memory.

That is a good interview. Thanks for sharing.

There's an ongoing debate here about our Confederate statues. Some people want them torn down, others want more context or more diverse statues put up.

I think you should tear them all down and put up 90-foot high statues of Malcolm X. and Ice Cube. I'm totally fine with that. I'm in. Or a hologram of Tupac that's constantly turned on.

Im intrigued by the fact he keeps mentioning 'Reflections In A Golden Eye' as a John Huston title they could have used. I know he's saying that as an example but it does make me wonder if they really are going to use it for an album (or song) soon.

Wow, I know Steven is a serious motherfucker on the bass and it is great to hear Buzz talk him up like that. It is also great to hear Buzz acknowledge that EVERY single bass player was a badass and contributed in a way that no other could have. Steven is a keeper. He will see this thing through the end.

It would be cool to see a bassist remain in the position for a good length of time. Not that some of the others haven't of course, but just to see how things progress. It would be weird to think ONE person could now stay with the band indefinitely until the wheels fall off. I know Buzz said it's not a case of a revolving door policy, but personally having got used to that occurrence, i'd possibly like to see another new bassist perhaps after at least another 3 or so Steve albums. Basically im in no rush to see him leave which is a good thing i guess.

It was a good interview I'm just a bit disappointed it doesn't seem like BB will be rejoining the Melvins anytime soon.

I feel that has run it's course now. No disrespect intended but i don't want them back in Melvins. Well, not in a recording sense anyway. I want the band to move on with Steven and see what that brings. Although i do think it would be cool for just Coady to appear onstage with them occasionally.

Melvins as a three-piece with Steve, is a force live and is also a charismatic, intelligent and friendly fella. I believe those three has little or nor friction on tour, just good fun.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Off! decide to tour more. I think they are currently writing a new record. Perhaps Pinkus will take over on bass for a while if they don't do a Melvins and Off! tour.

Yeah I know it's pretty much done when it was said Jared was taking maternity leave from the Melvins I knew it was over. Only just listened to that The Bulls & The Bees again last week it kills me, greatness on that EP.

I always thought the last time BB played as part of the Melvins was the Australian tour with Helmet in late 2013, the one I regrettably missed?

I would absolutely loooove a Melvins/OFF tour. I wish I had flown out to those Redd Kross/OFF/Melvins shows for new years.

Even better- how about Melvins and OFF recording together! With the Melvins productivity and willingness to collaborate, it's a real possibility.

Sure. I'd like to see that. Although the live shows of such a pairing could be interesting. Buzz not wanting to disrupt the sets "art performance" with chatter, while Keith Morris goes off on 20 minute monologues between songs!

The new year's eve show at Pappy & Harriet's was amazing!!  Really highlighted Steven's versatility seeing him play in three very distinct sounding bands all in a row.

It didn't hurt that we were lucky enough to share a table with Mario and his wife at dinner beforehand  with the entire McDonald clan at a long table just in front of us.   :shock:

Took the words out of my mouth. The ski masks the Melvins wore the whole show were an awesome idea!

I highly doubt OFF! would do a whole tour w/ Melvins. A few dates somewhere on the west coast, or meet up in the east? - yes. A 20+ date run of shows with all the grind of travelling? - no. Keith has stated recently in his great autobio "My Damage" that he's not into extensive touring, it's too hard with being diabetic. OFF! tours have never been long runs besides. I'm glad we get what we get with Keith. Saw OFF! twice, with both drummers. 8)
