PRODUCER BUTCH VIG TALKS ABOUT RECORDING NEW FOO FIGHTERS ALBUM

Here is an excerpt from Butch Vig’s new interview with HotPress.

A lot of people have picked up on ‘I Should Have Known’ as one of the rawest Foo Fighters songs in terms of subject matter.

You know, that was the most difficult song to record. We tracked it about halfway through the recording process. I loved the song and kind of obsessed on it a little bit, and I think Dave thought I was making it sound too pristine. He kept saying, “It’s too parted out”, which meant every section was very carefully arranged. And we went back and listened to a rehearsal that we did, which was a complete train wreck, because it was the first time Dave showed the band the chords and stuff, no one really knew what to do. Taylor was playing all these wild fills and Pat Smear was playing noise and feedback, but I remember listening to it going, “The vibe on that is really exciting.”

So we went and re-cut the song and left everything much rawer and looser. We set Dave up with a hand-held mic run into a guitar amp with tape echo, with a really thick distorted sound that bled into all the tracks. It definitely has that John Lennon solo album vibe, dirty and mucky, but really primal sounding. The end of that song is all from the first take he did. He was sitting about four feet away from me and when he finished it nobody said anything for a few seconds and I could see tears welling up in his eyes and he had sung so hard he couldn’t even catch his breath. He was channeling something there. It was real. No one knew what to say. To me that is sort of the cornerstone of the record. Dave won’t say that’s specifically about Kurt. He’s lost some friends to other illnesses and accidents too. It’s about dealing with things in the past, and Kurt is definitely a big part of that, trying to make peace with it and move forward in some way. Still when I hear that the hair on the back of my neck goes up.

PRODUCER ADAM KASPER TALKS ABOUT EDDIE VEDDER’S UKULELE SONGS

Read more: NYPost.com

“He doesn’t play a traditional ukulele style,” says Adam Kasper, who has produced several Pearl Jam albums, and co-produced this one with Vedder. “He plays it like a guitar. He’s not doing the touristy chunka-chunka thing. Imagine Pete Townshend playing the ukulele. That’s the approach.”

Vedder, who’s also releasing a live concert DVD called “Water on the Road” the same day, fell in love with the ukulele in the late ’90s. He’s been writing on the instrument ever since, and credits it with adding new dimensions to his songs.

“I learned so much about music by playing this miniature songwriting machine, especially about melody,” Vedder has said. “I was able to apply it to whatever I’m trying to write. It’s become part of songwriting for me.”

LISTEN TO SCOTT WEILAND’S INTERVIEW ON KEVIN & BEAN SHOW

Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland was on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean show last week and he sounded incredibly lucid. In many of Scott’s 2008-2010 interviews he stuttered constantly and can barely put a sentence together at some points, but he sounds completely normal here and talks very naturally and has a good sense of humor during this interview.  Good news for fans of Scott. CLICK HERE to listen to the interview, it starts 28:48 in. He opens it by saying he’s having, “coffee and cigarettes, a breakfast for champions.”

During the interview he said he changes some names in his book because he didn’t want to come off like he was name dropping to paint the picture of having some grandiose life. When talking about his relationship with his ex-wife Mary he said, “We talk about our love lives, and my minimal love life.”

The interviewer said that while he didn’t intend to disrespect Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots are meant to play together and there is a natural chemistry there that was there in the 90’s and is still there now. Scott said he agrees that STP are destined to be together.

Scott said alcohol is his next obstacle to get rid of. He says while he can drink and not be tempted to do drugs, that doesn’t mean his drinking is a good thing.

EDDIE VEDDER GIVES AN UPDATE ON PEARL JAM’S NEW ALBUM

From Eddie’s interview with the Seattle Times:

“We’re arranging the songs right now,” Vedder said. “It’s not my favorite part, not anybody’s favorite part. But when the work gets done, we can get excited about how we work together, the new plateaus of communication and understanding each other.”

Indeed, this summer, Pearl Jam will celebrate its 20th anniversary by headlining a two-day festival in Wisconsin and launching a Canadian tour. September will see the release of “Pearl Jam Twenty,” a documentary made by friend and director Cameron Crowe. The film will have an accompanying soundtrack album and book.

“We are each happily part of a gang,” Vedder said of the band. “Let’s plug in and play loud and fast and hard, and that will keep us from getting old and boring.”

COURTNEY LOVE CALLS LADY GAGA A ‘SEXLESS BARBIE DOLL SURROUNDED BY GAYS’

Credit: pinknews.co.uk

Courtney Love, one time rock-star and wife of the late Nirvana front-man Kurt Cobain has some choice words for Lady Gaga, warning against surrounding herself with gays as the Gaga posed on the cover of the Financial Times magazine with Stephen Fry.

Love, in an interview for The Fix said that Lady Gaga is “very young, and she’s very talented, but she doesn’t seem to have any female friends. Or any straight guy friends for that matter.” The Financial Times today published an interview of Lady Gaga by the gay actor, author and broadcaster Stephen Fry.

Love added:”She [Gaga] surrounds herself with this coterie of gay stylists and advisers who’ve turned her into this weird, sexless Barbie doll.”

“I was raised by gay guys myself,” adds Love. “I turned out all right in the end. But you know, you can only pull off this meat-dress act for so long. If she doesn’t watch out she’ll turn into a lonely drag queen. Straight guys just aren’t in to that kind of thing.”

COURTNEY LOVE IS BEING SUED OVER TWITTER REMARKS AGAIN

Credit: EOnline.com

According to one of her former lawyers, Love made libelous statements about the legal eagle on Twitter and in an interview, claiming the attorney took bribes while representing Love.

The complaint, filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by E! News, claims Love libeled San Diego-based Gordon & Holmes when she wrote on Twitter that one of the firm’s partners, Rhonda Holmes, sold Love out in a battle over money owed the estate of her late husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

According to court documents, Love didn’t like the firm’s handling of her affairs, particularly when Holmes requested Love desist from “any and all substance abuse” during the attorney-client relationship.

Love ended up firing Gordon & Holmes only to return several months later asking to represent her again. But when the firm refused, per the suit, that’s when Love went off publicly.

“I was f–king devastated when Rhonda J Holmes Esq of San Diego was bought off…,” Love stated in a tweet cited in court documents.

The firm also wasn’t too psyched about an interview Love gave to a website in July 2010 in which she again hinted at impropriety on Holmes’ part.

“I’ve been hiring and firing lawyers to help me with this,” Love said in the sit-down. The story says Love discussed “a female attorney who has since stopped taking her calls because ‘they got to her’ after [Love] mentioned something to Page 6 of the New York Post.”

“She’s disappeared,” the interview quotes Love as saying about Holmes.

Holmes claims such remarks have damaged her credibility and hurt her firm’s business. She is seeking unspecified damages.

Love’s attorney couldn’t be reached for comment.

But this isn’t the first the The People vs. Larry Flynt star has been sued over her big tweethole.

In March, Love paid clothing designer Dawn Simorangkir $430,000 to settle a suit over a vicious 2009 Twitter rampage in which Love called Simorangkir a “vile horrible lying bitch,” as well as cocaine dealer, embezzler, racist and homophobe, and even threatened her life.

KURT COBAIN WANTED TO BE FAMOUS, ALMOST ACTED IN ‘PULP FICTION’

This is from GQ’s new Nirvana article:

1. Kurt, at least at first, wanted to be insanely famous. Alan Mintz, Nirvana lawyer:

I was a music attorney, and they came up to my office. I asked them, “What’s our goal here? Is it to do another record for Sub Pop?” Kurt leaned forward and said, “Get me off this blankin’ label—I want to sell millions of records.” They left me a cassette of their demo. The next day I was walking down the street, singing to myself and racking my brain: “What is that song?” It hit me that it was the chorus to “In Bloom.” I called the band and said, “Let’s do this.”

Dave Grohl:

One day we went to some record company in New York. We took the elevator to the sixty-sixth floor, walked into the president’s office. He was sitting at his big glass desk with his big leather chair. He looks at us: “So what do you guys want?” Kurt says, “We want to be the biggest band in the world.” Krist [Novoselic] and I look at him: “We do?” We laughed hysterically, because that was not gonna happen.

3. Kurt was supposed to play Eric Stoltz’s part in Pulp Fiction. Courtney Love:

At the same time, boy, was he excited when the scripts started coming in. You ever wonder why he thanked Quentin [Tarantino] on the back of In Utero? Quentin asked him to play Eric Stoltz’s part in Pulp Fiction. You can ask Quentin that, because it’s true.
