I don't get it. :Cameron is a decent drummer

Not that I’m sold on this but i have to argue Cameron is a pretty talented musician and much more than a decent drummer...the early wellwater conspiracy stuff was good

No one here even has an idea of how this will turn out, hopefully it will be excellent music, not as much of a publicity stunt.

Something like this should have already happened 20 years ago even, but people were too scared to approach the Melvins fearing it would be detrimental to their careers presumably...Something like that...it's all about money.


Melvins couldn't get a slice of pie before it was gone, now guess what? They're running the fuckin' bakery!

 My bad :oops:. I was thinking of the other guy that drummed w/ Pearl Jam, Jack Irons. Soundgarden's drummer was always the VIP of that band. I was a casual Soundgarden fan, lost interest after Superunknown.
 I'm sure this will be decent, we could all be pleasantly surprised. I know nothing about Hawkins, other than the two high-profile artists he's drummed for. He might be the coolest fucking guy in the world to hang out & jam with, but he always came off as a surfer-bro Spicoli type to me.

 The big question about all this is: who plays what? Is Dale retiring from drums to play bass, or will Hawkins play bass and we get a new Crover/Cameron dual-drum lineup. Will they play all new material, or rework Melvins classics or both? Questions, questions...

))))((((

So many questions!

Personally i hope whatever this is, that it still falls under the Melvins moniker. I don't want to see another "side" project. I wonder whether part of doing this may be because the Crystal Fairy thing didn't work out too. That they just really want to do a side band.

Not to mention Killing Joke. That pretty much redeems him for Foo Fighters in my eyes.

Well you gotta look at the audience too. I'm guessing you aren't in the Pearl Jam and Soundgarden groups on FB to gauge their interest. Plus Crystal Fairy had more interaction by the members as far as interviews and whatnot. PLUS I'm guessing it's super early into whatever this thing is, if it's a group or if they're just going to get together and record a song or two or what.
Hail, not fail.
PS:  fuck him.

In a way I hope that all goes over like water under the fridge between those two, I don't think all the money in the world is going to fix that though...it would take some kind of miracle.

I have friends like that who don't talk to me or want to deal with me, even though I was close enough to them to be at their wedding...it's sad but sometimes people just want to cut themselves loose and drift apart from you and hope you pick up the vibe, and there's Nothing you can do but take the hint and fuck off.

I think we can all relate.

I don't know him personally, but I think Buzz isn't someone you want to piss off...I will say that much.  :buzz:

Reminds me of the Broken Bat project with Ty Segall, Dale & Steven (just before Steven officially joined the Melvins).
If I had to guess Buzz put the kaibosh on that real quick  :lol:

I don't think it was Buzz. I seem to remember a Dale or Steven interview where they essentially said "Ty lost interest." I could be wrong.
