It just didnât work out this year. But I saw them in â91. âI Will Dareâ was the first song, and they played 2Â½ hours. I have âUnsatisfiedâ tattooed on my arm.
Probably my favorite band of all time. I also have a tattoo on my arm. Theyâre one of those bands Iâm just totally mesmerized by.
My Morning Jacket
I just love the band. It just didnât work out, but it wasnât for a lack of trying. Iâve always been a fan, and I think theyâre a special band.
The Jesus Lizard
The one that got away. The timing of their touring couldnât work out. It was a real bummer, but the band that ended up taking their place was really killer, which was Sunny Day Real Estate.
I got into him because I worked a show with Mike Watt, and he was playing him afterward, and I became really fascinated with him. Imagine Coltrane at Berbatiâs or the Crystal Ballroom. I mean, thatâd be taking it to a different level.
