"A lot of these episodes feel like standalone movies which is itself pro. Anything better right. I mean pine barrens or any number of them. You could put it in a associated about buying bayer. Well we can name any any number of them. The point is that they don't. This was another thing that was different. Was that not every episode connected to directly to something that would come in the next step so ones but exactly we're stand. Yeah and i think it was just consistent with trading. The audience with more respect than tv had done to that point. I mean not everything needed to be spelled out for people. Not everything needs to be neatly resolved. You want said there was only one rule on the show in terms of work. What was that. It was the camera during therapy scenes. camera was not allowed to move. We wouldn't do any dali push ins on somebody's faces they're really getting into what they really mean is not. That's just not the way therapy is. You're not hold when it's getting important. Your you know flailing your way through it and so in. I also had a rule of not no overhead shot. That was a different thing money. So as the show progressed it became such a phenomenon. You've you we've just mentioned a little bit that gandolfini as we'll often happen on shows the star temperamental or demanding. Sometimes the there's clashes things are gonna happen at the stakes grow higher right but he never behaved he never. It was never star issues When i worked on northern exposure for example there were two stars on that show. They can go nameless. I took over. And i went up to seattle. It was a first assistant not there with a big long tape measure and he was measuring the distance from each of their trailers to look to the door because if one was longer than the other problem and that that's the kind of stuff a lot of people are into just star tripping right so that was now what was happening here but just.

"We've got our antonio would have been frankie avalon because yeah you've said you think if it was picked up by fox how what. What sort of. Maybe you were being a little joking about this. But what do you think they would have done with tony. Well i said that. I said he would have to be helping. The government fight terrorism. Spare time by night night. So what's strange is it's sort of happened toward the end but what it wasn't like that it on your own terms. Yes but i didn't even realize it until so with the hbo pilot where you're getting a second shot at doing this for tv. You got to cast the main guy. Tony soprano you'd already. I guess see vans who was from issue ban with somebody you had on your radar michael holy couple of people that you were very seriously considering well i was seriously consider i was i was seriously considering stevie and i was seriously considering jim michael c at a network if you said i want jim gandolfini they said no you have to bring in five people here i look at them so i brought these guys besides jim and besides stevie steve ages said come on noses millions of dollars guys never acted and we all could see during that it was june yes but didn't he he may have had the hardest time because didn't he initially comes in for an audition that went very off the rails. He came in for his audition and he was doing the scene and he stopped in the middle and said this is not doing good. I'm leaving and he left so what we'd seen was really good and He was supposed to come back on. Friday and friday came and he we got worried. I swear this is what happened yet. I can't believe he would have done this. But he I got word that his mother had died. We got any couldn't come. But if i found out later mother bed for seven or eight years so And then so that didn't happen but we kept pursuing kept pursuing it and i come back to la and he came to my house and auditioned in the garage. And i taped it and it was great. I showed him the tape. And that was that and it's if anyone's wondering what he had done before. I guess he was a maniac in true romance. He'd done theater but he was not somebody's he'd done get shorty. Yes yes yes. And then in terms of ed falco she came from oz mentioned. Tom fontana came over from there. A lot of people came from goodfellas grand bracco. Mike when parolee. Frank vincent tony rico vincent. Pest story that was just. You would love that movie. Well yeah i. Yeah i did. I did love that movie. But that's not the reason why like for example. If you had told me this guy tony areco was in goodfellas..

"Find easier like a good neighbor state farm is there. It's an honor to be joined by david chase. David how are you. i'm good. how are you. I'm hanging in there david. I i want to start by talking about not the minnie's of newark but your other film because that is what i thought of. When i watched the many scenes of newark i'm talking about not fade away and i'm fascinated by the idea of you returning to late sixties new jersey in particular. Do you see a correlation a connection between these two movies. Let's talk about that movie before that. You said how an line and i just entered in a road convoy but charlie watts died today. That's very sad and disturbing so rating and he's the movie. So that was about was about. Charlie watson is associates. Yeah very much. So the rolling stones obviously echo throughout not fade away. Did you think about that film at all as a as a kind of cousin in any way to the many saints. No i did not one. I thought was if i get to do another. We had to get out of the sixties and get out of new jersey. How.

"As i mentioned you'd want to be a filmmaker for many years and has this kind of fraught relationship tv. Not fade away. Did not get a massive release. And was you know there were. There were some critical admiration but it was not a big hit at the box office. But it happens at a kind of a similar time as this story in the sopranos story set in the sixties. It's a coming of age story. It's about people realizing what their destinies are whether that be in a life of crime or as a musician whether that be in staying in new jersey of the rest of your life perhaps entering to the west coast to california. D- are you. Are you not fade away fan. You see relationship between these two projects. It's been a while. So i've seen it. I saw it when it came out. I didn't manage to sneak that. In in the middle of my. I did enjoy the movie. But i did. I did feel like this was kind of a piece of that. Because part of the reason chase wanted to tell the story i believe. And i'm just gleaning this from interviews. Was that this was the error that he grew up in and he just he felt a need to go back and tell a story set in this era and not fade away. Is you know also set around the same time. So i mean i did see a connection there and i do think that this is probably a little more of chasing the storytelling. Let's talk a little bit about the characters that we spend a lot of time within many saints so alessandra evola quite a good actor and who hasn't maybe not had as high profile role as this in a long. Long time plays dicky mouth. Asante dickey moult asante. I think for many sopranos fans is one of the more mythic figures he someone that we hear about and we hear about how he may or may not have died. We hear stories about him. Obviously he is live looms large. Christopher asante story what did you think about positioning him at the center of the movie. Would you think about novel. How did you feel about how they handled dickey. Altogether i thought was great. I think he was one of the two best performances per three best performances but I think he worked as a center. I think that the choice to go with him was smart. Because it was kind of going with the blank canvas in some ways We only knew. Small things about dickey. Mold santi and those came from christopher antonis miles and i would argue that if we take the movie as like the canonical texts for dickey dishonesty santi. Some of the things that were said about him in the series are not actually true But i thought it was a smart decision. I thought he did a great job. I did think at times. The character didn't necessarily.

"This is easy for a white person to say yeah started after. We were finished principal. Photography. george floyd. That happened after they were done. Yeah and we were fighting with this movie. Which wasn't really working for. Why just could have been better. I don't know it was When you were shooting no outright when you're finished shooting. Oh finish shooting during the editing process. Okay and a lot of people found it confusing test audience. Sure and they didn't know they didn't know whether they're supposed to be picking out. Oh that's silvio or there. Yeah so. That was confusing. They couldn't follow the story because of that And anyway so we did another fifteen pages. Aft after george floyd and we didn't change any of that yeah. None of the racial stuff was changed now. There was a thing but the sopranos where and it seemed like for a long time. Maybe the whole now. I know there were some bad episodes and some good episodes but even the bad ones i feel are pretty good. Yeah but we couldn't put a foot wrong for some reason. I don't know what that means. And it's not about my talent or anybody's talent. something. I know this sounds weird. Something was guiding something. Yeah and it became so successful at the same time we would put things in the show and then it would happen two weeks later in the real world. That happened again with the movie high. We made a movie. We'd made a movie about racial tension and yeah And anti-black feelings. Yeah and we shut down and lo and behold everybody says how'd you this was right. You wrote this after after georgia line. We say yeah so. That happened all the time with the show. I don't. I'm not taking any credit for it. I never understood it but he had happened.

"Hbo said to me two years out said you better think about ending the show and how you want it to end or never because television never there was never ending tv series of the time it was canceled. And you just had a 401 together exactly. Yeah so we never got to do anything right. God was right. I mean roger never had an ending. Yeah y- that's true it so in here. You were in this position. You'd created this amazing thing that changed the face of television and you actually had control over the ending two years ahead of the time you know you eventually. We can't have this go on forever. Because anita sitcoms yeah i mean i had. I wanted to get out and do movies now. I'm hot now. I can do movies. That didn't work out that well and It's amazing because all i will say this. Yeah that show made that network it did and it made them a huge amount of money but they want it. I think chris wanted of that. And what i need to keep this requesting money. I need to keep some money for research and development. For what's gonna come. After and i think on some level he was probably always thinking to himself or dreaming at night or waking up with. What's going to come after the. What are we gonna do after that and On some level he probably wanted to get to that. Yeah let's face that demon right. What are we gonna do post surprised yet. We're going to do with the whole. The mob left so so the think about it. Yeah i did. I probably shouldn't take in years to think that. But i'm kidding you just knew you. Just new journey was the answer. Is that a journey was the you know. The journey journey was in production. There was going to be a song at the end. Yeah who's gonna play with the jukebox. Yeah and i. I was in the scout van with All the department heads. Yeah production design. We're looking for locations right. And i never done this before. I said listen Talk about three songs. That i want thinking about for ending the show and they were like he's asking us. Yeah right one of them. Was al green who have in happiness unhappiness. Yeah exactly okay. The second the second one. I don't remember and the journey song right. Don't stop believing. Jesus christ no. Don't do that right. Oh fuck and i said. I guess that's it. That's the one i wasn't. I wasn't saying that because just to throw it in their face. Yeah i thought that was kind of my favorite. And i just thought that. Got a reaction of some kind. So i can make this song lovable right which it was. You know it had been Anyway did you direct that last episode. Yeah so you're aware of you created attention there knowing you know that the the end which is going to be them eating so yeah. Yeah the parking. The car was just so it was fun. It was ver- you know knowing doing it knowing where you're going. Yeah yeah. I've been when i say it was fun. I don't know i haven't aversion. I think a lot of people do in the movie business to saying it was really fun. Yeah it has to seem deeper than that but it was really fun. The whole thing that the whole thing. Yeah i mean. There's some bad times but the whole thing and that episode particularly yeah In the course of it when you look back on it and having not known where it was all going to go really you know. What are you proud of about. I in in in that in terms of creatively. Like is it the way that Was that guy's name. Frank vincent is at franklin. Was it the way he died. That's you gotta be pretty proud of that. I was i. I was pretty proud of that. Now that you mention it yeah. I was pretty proud of that. So was that so seriously Creating shit where people are going to only. Is that my my my whole impulse. I don't think so. No no i i but i do think like i did like right and and the little kids bounced up and down. I must say you're gonna. You're making me brag about it and relive it. It was it was fucking great. Couldn't believe that it was fucking great. No i don't think it was a. I don't think that's your whole thing to shock. People i think that you know it isn't really is of course. Now i mean i would never assume that because you never thought like this guy's just doing this to you know to blow our minds. Would shock bullshit was just like you. You humanize these guys who did horrible things. And that's that yes. I i mean i you know. There were four or five other writers in the room. We yeah who would not of let that be just a shock. No in fact some of them. I had to talk out of that. Don't you know. I remember chris. Albrecht again me when we started. We did the pilot and we had the bottom being topless dancers. Which you're against the law in new jersey. And he said let's not do something because we just because we can thought that's pretty smart I mean i never heard a network guy. Be that intelligent right why i mean he was. You know it was hbo. Yeah but i mean that was. i always had. That's a really good way to go about it. Yeah yeah and then. We worked out beautifully. Now d- so you still seem a little mad that you didn't do more movies. Yeah yeah and you knew what this movie now what you were supposed to direct it. I was yeah what happened illnesses in the family Sorry but you were there. The whole time Ninety percent what when when you really thought about making race in element was that as a some sort of reaction to the times we're living in our was that always part of the story for you.

"And some italian guy james marine hours. Yeah and it ended up with a gunfight. How couple of hells angels in a gunfight. And they'll cheat and the chief villain had to give up because he had to take shit and he shouldn't his pants and ran into the house. So despite all this the people the executives universal kept having faith that was part of the universal view. but okay. so you're beating yourself up and all this but you sort of. Obviously you know how to do the work. You know how to get a script on you know how to you know how to produce a show at this point right man so by the time you do. The sopranos was the did you when you started to work on the sopranos. Did you finally at least say to yourself. I'm doing something now that i'm proud of and it's not for the bread. Well i'm trying to explain this as asa wasn't all for for the I was married. And then i had a kid. And so you know yeah What was your question. The question is by the time you created the sopranos. Did you feel like you had control and you were happy about it. Yeah i wasn't happy. When they said they were binding it. Yeah when i mean we made the pilot and it took about a year before they made a decision on it. They tested it. And we're all you know. Everybody was waiting around right when they said they were going to buy it. I thought off the end of my life. What seriously. I mean. I look at your age. You're finished ms another. tv show. yeah and So wait so was the thing that was hanging over. You was that you know you still hadn't done movies. Yeah okay yeah right. I was going to the movies. And i was watching all kinds of movies. And and so. When i sold sopranos i decided okay. Well that's going to be like the movies that i go to see right but i thought well i was hoping for that whole year when they didn't buy when they had and decide yeah that they would pass on it and that i could get another half a million dollars out of them and put an it was about seventy minutes long. Put another twenty or so minutes in it. Make a movie out of it and take it to the con- festival. That was my dream. Yeah that didn't happen. This other thing happens is other destiny. It wasn't destiny so yeah it was a huge destiny. Put but in doing that. You were able to change the the the filming language of television into something. I mean you you are sort of almost personally responsible for for making a you know a five or six year movie like there was a sense of you know i never say no. I never did five year movie. Yeah i mean. Because i mean the conversation was nobody had seen. Tv like that and you know all the the filmmaker elements were not In any way Traditional television and the every episode some of them more than others felt like movies. That was my goal so you was my goal to do a little movie every week. Yeah and so not only. Did you do a movie. You did the longest movie ever made okay. But it wasn't in the movie theater and you know the you know different. I just Obviously sure You know you go you fall under a spell or you. Don't right i well. I mean i. I sat and watched when i was shooting glow. I watched the entire All of the sopranos episodes sitting there onset like as if it were like a move like every day. Like i've been watching. But i mean again. I wasn't in the movie theater but you know it was interesting to me was in watching. Is that there are definitely some episodes that were Know almost like surrealistic adventures. Yeah and and that. Oh good thank you because when i watched him the first time where we all kind of looked forward to sunday you know it was different. You know. you're just kind of but like watching them altogether. I really saw. Jesus some episodes really they all stand on their own but some of them were. Were sort of like you know art with. They were art movies. I know yeah and it was. It was always the best. Obviously the best creative experience of my life. Yeah and i really felt wonderful doing it. And when you got into it though like you know how much of this sort of like because it seems like you know whatever. It is whatever reason you're know you're so hard on yourself for you know you judge yourself against this idea of who of yourself. That didn't happen the way you want it to happen. I mean how much like the compulsion at the beginning of the sopranos was to resolve some of your own shit to resolve some shit. I don't not consciously but it was was too i would call it. Resort resolve networks shit but it was certainly to deal with networks shit shit. Yeah that was show television. Show the networks television wishing. Yeah yeah At that time there was elvis costello soul on radio radio shirt And an i used to think about this all the time. He's he's he you know. I wanna bite the hand that feeds me. I wanna bite that hands so badly. Yeah i wanna make them wish they never seen me and that happened at all came through. You showed them. I showed them No it felt really good. Yeah but in terms of like your your family staff. Did you find that like when you were writing that you know. You're bringing a lot of your personal gain issues to his mother was based on my mother. Yeah he had some things like like my father. Yeah tony tony. Yeah yeah i And all all the italian americanism Came from my past And and i. I still think it's what maybe the most italian american showed has ever been on tv. And maybe even more italian american and certain gangster movies. Oh for sure you know. Well i mean it just inside the house that hold yup all but and also inside the two different kinds of houses. You know that. You know the the italian americans that were still in the mindset of like you know trying to pass right. Yeah so you know middle class. Upper middle class. Italian americans who want to distance themselves from the italian work at pork store with. They're gangsters are not right..

"Yeah yeah and then three years go by the writers guild goes on strike. How yet. I had to go on picket duty. I and i was extremely pissed off because the guild had never gotten any work right. I thought it was like the plumbers union or something. Like you know a union hall greg. And they'd say you know anybody here worked with Brass and but that never happened seating. evan agent. I finally got an agent when i went to pick duty at paramount studios in front of the big gates. Yeah I met a guy who's leads me to his agent and he was. He was a couple of years older than me. He was about to take over the back. Nine of the magician was bill bixby and so did that and then he got hired to be the producer of the night. Stalker darren too. Yeah so he took me with him to their. He got fired after three episodes or left. And i stayed there. For seven years at universal. So now when you was this Did you did you find it. Gratifying i mean were you engaged with it. I mean because it's hard to tell how how you're talking about it. I know. I know you obviously learn something. Oh fuck of a hunt. Did i all the time. I was thinking. Here's what it was. Yeah all the time. I was thinking you asshole. You took two seven year contract money money money so you're not going to be in the movies anymore. I was trying to get into the movies trying to shift over right. But he didn't work out. Blame myself yeah. You saw that. Yeah absolutely yeah. But at the same time i was enjoying i worked on really good stuff. I have to say. I was lucky. What was your favorite back. Then the rockford files early. That was such a. It's like a fun show. It was fun it was fun and garner. Seems like he was great. Yeah make a great guy. He was a good guy. Yeah everybody was. It was a lot of fun. I really felt like you were part of a family. Yeah did not michael lerner do some rockford fund the actor. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah as a character. Does he still around. He is man. I had him on. I did a show on. I've see for four seasons and eat way My my my mother's boyfriend in one episode. What a fucking piece of work that guy. If how so. I mean he was great. He was great. You know he really I think believes he should have won the oscar for barton. Thank and maybe he should've but now like he's just one of these guys were like we're all sitting around. Here's what here's what he did all right. So it's a small production first of all. He's always doing going. Can i have this robe. Can i have these shoes. Can i take every everything on the said i can. I take this on and then The what the amazing thing is though this guy you know. He's sitting out in front of his trailer. Goes balls hanging out he's got. He's sitting in a robe and So we're shooting in house in a condo and the video villages the bathroom. It's this little bathroom so everyone's cram right and we're shooting the scene and they're still low budget show and somehow at lunch. Everyone's gone and some for whatever reason michael lerner went in there and took a dump in that bathroom for for some reason. You had a trailer. He got it. So i guess so. That was his set. So that's how that worked and he he also doing saved through them. He'll fuck with your head man. I mean like he. He's an interesting guy. He's a great actor. And i love him but he's he's a piece of work like you know we'll be we'll we'll be shooting shoot when sally kellerman and him. They may ask how we call them. It's fine my mother. And he's just in my head before every seen he's like you know what you're doing dude making choices. Because by the time he goes betide by the time action happens he owns a seam. Because it's fucking right right. So i think they know that i think he knows he i think he he wants to. I think he did more than what he probably one a year. Wanna season. sure sheriff fun. Yeah yeah. I get a scumbag villain yet. There are so many of those actors. Then right in the seventies this guys that were all around but But gardner was great and great to work with great to work with. Yeah also i kind of i respect. I respected the writing. I i respected the show I had been on another show too that. Yeah and i the end. The refer people screened an episode of rockford from here. And i thought well i thought wow this really seems like it's really about los angeles this. This show takes place not just in its time slot but in the real los angeles yeah.

We must have music seen any everybody. No oh i you know. I don't know why. But i've never really been a concert guy that much. I'm the same. And i realize it. Yeah i just Yeah because i. I'm only good for about forty five minutes you it's not even even before i got old. It was sort of like you know. I go and it's uncomfortable if i can't see what's the fucking point.

Yeah at all my friends. And i did come over and they listen. We'd get high and listen to record and sometimes with my friends pick them apart and try to figure out the parts and then try to play them. Yeah yeah so in the seventies where all your friends in show business that time now. No no i mean from film school. Were trying to be in show biz. Yeah i do remember that we lived. We lived in an apartment In brentwood and went people can't when friends came from back east. Yeah we'd get high. We'd get in the car and go down to twentieth century fox on pico boulevard and drive into the lot and the guy at the gate would just didn't care. Yeah it's nighttime and you drive in pretty soon. You're underneath the third avenue el an you're in new york. It was it the from barbra streisand louis. Wright big movie funny girl girl. Yeah yeah and we used to do. I just i loved.

"School. My phone owned a hardware store really jersey hardware store. Yeah verona new jersey. Yeah hardware stores were great. Did you go there when your care. Well yeah well. He on one in a shopping center. Frost and i used to my. He had a partner so his partners name was tony. And the kid's name was bobby a And we used to go down there all the time and there was a toy store in that place. Oh yeah there was a lot of stuff. I saw and a chinese restaurant next door. So you can look in there and seeing the chinese guys plucking chickens and then That's a big kid. Memory guys plugging chicken chicken. Yeah sitting down on like a buck overturned bucket and you know that is out. Meanwhile my father. Tony would complain about the smell. Chinese food sure And then he went to deeper into suburbia and that was He was always struggling because he picked this. This time he had been a draftsman. Yeah and he picked this time of life to open a hardware store. How does he Forty yeah it was just highway. Stores are starting to open up out the big one. Big one yeah. So he was he was always trying to come up from behind that And bad timing bad timing. And then i when i left. They sold it to a guy who it all up and then. My mother went down for a sheriff's sale on his whole life. Yeah one thousand. Three hundred and forty dollars is after he passed. It was like you know. Arthur miller really but the hardware store and the reason. I used to go like go. There's all these old guys hanging around telling stories. Take around the hardware store because it was this tiny town. Oh w haram is yeah. My grandpa jack was he'd let him in there and just they'll sit around. There was like a luncheon across the street and the guy who owned it got busted for run numbers or something. Yeah the nice guy. Archie used to give us candy turns out running a racket. So you're from you're from pompton lake. I know i was born in jersey city. I lived In jersey only until like six or seven wayne but both my parents are from jersey. I'm genetically jersey right. Yeah so you grew up in that area. I love new jersey me to do you go As i get older and even i remember like we used to drive on. I don't know if it was forty six. Or whatever and do the city you drive through secaucus and my grandmother would say can smell the pigs pigs pig for you do remember patriots. Never saw a fucking me neither but they used to talk about it. Yeah they talk in the car on the way to new york but exactly the pig farms. Of course it didn't smell good was industry. Pig didn't smell like pigs. I loved i the the meadowlands. I love that whole thing and that's sopranos was kind of originally set in in that area. In the well. I mean surprise was set in newark. He touches the metal at some point. Yeah all those rivers the raritan. Yeah yeah yeah. I just when i was a kid a little kid. Yeah i used to. We used to go see my grandmother in westchester Every yeah yeah Mount vernon every other sunday. And i would and we should take the wash. We lived in clifton at that time right so we take the washington bridge. And i would beg my father to take us through home through the lincoln tunnel. Yeah because i got to go to manhattan right and at that time. There were ships there with their the proud of the boat like over the west side highway just and then going into the meadowlands was like a whole fantasy land. That was like a grownup land. Yeah whole yeah i remember. There was a bar with an anchor on it. He added a movie right and made a big impression. Oh huge yeah huge. I mean i might. My grandfather comes from elizabeth. So that's right there. And then you know my grandparents lived in baone for awhile. I remember we used to just squeeze into the bathroom to look out the window because you could see the statue of liberty barely baone. Yeah but there was definitely that sense. I remember driving into the city when i was a kid with my grandfather to get tongue. Cats is and it was like you just felt the electricity of it of being in a in a huge world. Yeah so that was a well. I thought it was my father's world. Oh yeah that's what i thought. Yeah he owned well. He lived in he that he built it. Yeah for instance way. That's true i guess. Of course of course but So but you growing up in In in jersey in your father was always what disgruntled yet. Yeah i'd say more than disgruntle. Yeah very angry. Yeah and how many how many kids in the family me just you. A lot of pressure. yeah a lot of pressure. Yeah so a lot of anger in the house a whole lot. Yeah they were fighting. They were fighting. Mike was Very very difficult for him. I'm sure yeah me zoo. But i was. I never really understood that relationship. Really i who understands your parents relationship. I mean. did they last all time they did. I guess you know different generation. Yeah and what What drove you out. What drove you to to to show business. What what was the intention originally to get rich and famous. I think do you knew in high school but yeah i mean i'm saying that. Yeah you're rich and famous but you know what drove me out was My my love of rock and roll music. Oh yeah i want. I wanted to be after the beatles and the stones. that's all i think about. That's all i could think about. It and i was in we. Were you know my friend. Some friends of mine and i. Yeah two guys who really really good guitar players. yeah Still play one of them. Died in yeah and he used to play he was. He used to tour with the gardening. Paul siebel your them He died and the other one is still around. Yeah But i don't think i don't know how much he's playing. He played in a band we had a. We had a jam band. Had this idea right that we were gonna make it big. Yeah i made a movie about it. Actually and not well. Yeah we've had a fini about the kid right yeah And i i just wanted that so much. And then i got interested. I mean i've always loved movies right but it never occurred to me that you could make one so but you saw like you saw the full arc of rock and roll is a conscious person right. I mean you saw the beginning of it all the way through because you must have been like what fourteen or fifteen in the fifties right so you saw no well close to twelve hundred like elvis and then you saw a turn into the beatles and then he turned into the rest of it in the cities all there at the beginning and you loved it so you you grew up with it. I grew up with it. And i started playing the drums probably at fort thirteen or fourteen. Yeah but it wasn't specifically to be a rock and roll band right i. I took drum lessons from a guy who had played with big bands. guy named jimmy your own And so i learned what i learned to read music only on one line Drumline the drumline. Yeah i was learning independence. I don't know if you that means What does it mean. Well it means that each of your four limbs is doing something different. Okay yeah You know it's very difficult. But i loved it was suggesting yeah so at that point in high school for what. That's one that's one like pop music. Whatever you wanna call them. Yeah just downhill nothing good. Yeah so meet my friends. And i all got into jazz for a while and yeah i just load that. I just loved it. Then the beatles came along and jazz and by that time we'd also put everybody had put their instruments away because we got driver's licenses. Yeah and that was the end of driver's license in girls and the driver's licenses and you could drink alcohol. Yeah that was it. Greenwood lake and a manhattan. Yeah so then. When does it become possible for you to to sort of start thinking about writing. Yeah i mean what what. What what what spurned. Because i've i've heard that you're still like very into music like you're you're a huge brain for music. I do nothing new. Frankly no where's it. And what year do you go up to seventy five. No no no how. Maybe the first decade of two thousand. And you do records. You'd records i do. I just just uncovered them because we moved pretty big record collection. I thought it was bigger. But i do i do. Have you thought it was bigger. Yeah i thought it was going to be like. Oh yeah david recollection. Not enough for that. No no and i still haven't played one of them yet. So so. When did you start writing. I started writing in film school because my analysis was that to make a movie. Yeah you'd need millions of dollars. Yeah but to write a script you need some paper and a pencil and that was the way to get in. So i started writing there and who was What movies were you drawn towards at that time. Yeah like what was making you wanna do it. Well.

"Yeah yeah it's like if one goes you cry for a little while the go pick another cat. Yeah well i never. I've lost three cats coyotes. And i never blow it off that he's was done now. Of course yeah yeah terrible. I think it was three but it could have been to one of them. The third one might have just abandoned us and gone elsewhere. Well that's the hope we don't actually find pieces of it that they found a nicer place. Yeah i had that happen to one. And i just hope they like some nice mexican lady down the because it used to be an indoor cat but it pissed all over everything so i had to put it outside so i always thought i had a chip on children. Then it disappeared really and i. My hope was that nice lady took him in because they don't they don't give a shit after a couple of days. They're not dogs right. No it's But i i haven't i had to put two down That were old. And that's heavy. But it's different than getting different than coyotes. You kind of know what's happening. You dare and you miss some but you know you do realize that good life. Well i think it's the whole being torn apart thing you don't want to see the earth. Think about that the worst. You gotta keep it in house. So i didn't. I didn't realize moved out here. So funny like i talked to a lot of people all the time but for some reason when you were coming over i felt like i was talking to some sort of a mafia don. I like this guy. This guy is heavy because people said a lot of stupid things about you well tony. So rico's somebody he's he's been quoted that he said you know. I know i know a lot of wise guys. I know a lot of really tough guy. But david i'm scared of well. Yeah i could have fired him but other than that. Oh yeah that's funny to like. Yeah you could fire him. I mean as far as an actor goes right right. But i you know i. It was very interesting in the new movie to see all the guys take on those characters were that we knew from the sopranos. Young men right and i thought the detail of seeing Little steven's Character with before he got the peace with the comb over the that was all john. Medeiros idea oh yeah with the guy who played them. Oh yeah oh really. Yeah he said. I tacoma over and then we put the the peace. That's what he told me. So you know. I'll like to play stevie and we'll do the column over and then i'll get the peace and that i mean that was a great detail. The the big jump over to peace but they work so hard to get the the the gimmick sorta twitches right. If for some reason the i saw it in a theater. I swear to god. I lift the theater. This never happens me. And i don't know if i've got a getting soft in the head. But i thought vera for me. I thought that was Eating falco everybody says that really okay. Thank god everybody says. Because i i left thinking like god. Edie falco was genius. My producers like this. She's not in it now. Mike who the fuck was that. Yeah but there was. Why is that. i made this. She looked like her. The i mean she. She had a prosthetic nose. All her profile was kind of like eighty. Okay so i didn't realize he had a prostatic now. I mean i noticed that right away so then of course you say well of course. He married his mother. Sure why i mean. I got that. But i thought that was her so i would have recognized. You're okay so there was a prosthetic. Dow and i thought that she didn't amazing job. You know Getting a what's her name marchand Nancy marchand twit twitches and and kurt quirks. Do you know the weird habits of these characters used. Yeah later but mcgarrell did this thing. We're mcgowan walked to the door. I don't remember that yeah. Racist tell was about their unloading the truck. Yeah tony's knocking on the door. Yeah he walks across and he had he had. That walked down same thing. Hopefully things have vans ed. Yeah no great my i guess. My question though is that this movie didn't have to be a surprise. Prequel did it really. I mean like the movie was setting up tony to a degree but the movie was about another character and it was about race really in in in newark. I mean it seems like it would have stood on its own Had had it. Not you know had been detached. Yeah but you know nobody. Did you ever think of that. I mean did you. This story didn't happen wasn't a story existing in your head. It was something that came out of the sopranos. No it was It came because new line Approached me about doing quote unquote as sopranos movie. Right okay. so so so you sat down. Put your mind to it. And that's what you came up. We came up with. I am so you sit down with that idea. And you realize well. Tony's too young to base a movie on this point to to run a whole movie through as the lead right. Yeah so how do you. How did you connect the mythology. Why did you choose Wealthy santia answers because Well i mean everybody loves. I love christopher christopher span. You know the way. The christopher story had been left. There was some room there for some afterlife stuff. But that came. That came later Well lawrence connor and who we wrote it together. He quizzed me what he wanted. You want to do a really good sopranos episode. Do you want to do something different. Yeah and we decided we wanted to do is make a really good gangster movie right and we figured we need a really good gangster. Yeah you couldn't have couldn't have jim gandolfini more and yeah and i you know. Remember this guy to key montesano. He'd been a lot of talk about him. Yeah and so. I was interested in. I thought it'd be interesting. Who is that guy. Yeah you know so. So that was that was it. That's that's yeah and then riots komo. Why did you grow up from jersey right Do you remember that. Yeah i do. Because i mean you know it. Seems like he would have been right at the age where you were taking all that in. Yeah i guess my My girlfriend and who's now my wife worked at the prudential insurance company in downtown newark. Yeah and i drove her.

"I'm back for a couple of days. I was in st louis. And i gotta be honest with you man. After all the shit talking of missouri. I had an amazing bunch of shows there. It's you know. I freak out before. I go anywhere and i was paranoid but yeah i'm also critical. You'll missouri. i'm not i. it's still a political and kind of religious crucible of dumb fuck ary but saint louis. It's odd i. I've been there before but i don't always remember the cities that i've been in and i notice that when i was driving around realizing that like i remember like the record store i went to but it wasn't like excitement. It was like it was like being at the returning the place where the trauma happened again. I just the tone my rental car and mike. Oh my god. I've been here. I've been here. Oh shit. This is where i had the sandwich. Zouk with weird tone but i was not traumatized it turns out that saint louis is a pretty great city it was probably an amazing city and now it's pretty great it's stunning. There's a lot of great buildings a lot of good Parks apparently the all. The museums are free and outdoor concerts and stuff. I'm not going to do a big commercial for saint louis. I barely got into the city. I was staying outside of the city in clayton where the club is which is sort of a suburb. I think but i got out. I ate some things. Great fucking record stores. Man i went to. I went to vintage vinyl. Which is good but then i want to. You could records holy fuck and like look man. I know. I don't know when this is gonna end. I don't know when it's going to stop. I know that. I'm not the only fifty seven year old man scrambling around buying records. And i know that. Every day that i buy more records every day of my life when i look at my records i look at my guitars. I look at my house. Or i look at my shoes. I look at my shirts. I realize what's going to happen to all this shit. How much of this is gonna be garbage. Where does all this go in. That goes to seriously though. Where is it going to go. And then it goes to fuck. I've got. I've got to redo my will. I think who's in my i got. Who's in my will. What what is i got. Where's my estate planning situation. Would i better. I gotta make sure somebody gets his stuff. I gotta make sure charity. Get some things. I should give my my pants charity and the boots some money and stuff. So that's where my brain goes. But look i'm just trying to change my diet to as bad as it can possibly be so I can die before everyone dies at the same time but back to saint louis so the reason as you guys know i go to do. The extended runs is to work on the shit and it had been a few weeks before. I since i did that hours. And god damn it. I got out there man. Though second shows there was one. Show friday the first show variety were. That's it that's the structure you'll ended on So tied up. Figure out how you want to end the thing. Move some stuff around. You got some guts around this. These death jokes. So you know close with him. Don't be a puss and then figure out the tag. So this is inner dialogue stuff. So i'm doing bad our fifteen our twenties our twenty five. I'd say i do have a pretty solid our ten. That's going to be good. But then like second shows friday and saturday where you gotta turn on the juice you got to tweak your fucking energy i just and also by saturday second show Board of my shit. Because i've done four in a row identity one that before that and i gotta make it interesting for me. So it got real. It got weird. It was beautiful second. show saturday. Saint louis fucking serious jazz set serious and look man. I don't need to be like some comics is sort of like mark going to improvise an entire show. Like if you're a good comic of course you can do that. You don't need to whatever. So but the riffing thing distortive riff with some intention in some and really explore something to figure out how you think about stuff is fucking thrilling. You know it's thrilling. Because it doesn't always hinge on getting the laugh with me. it's a sort of like creative discovery process. Which is how. I do it but when it really goes when you're really feeling like you're in the cradle of it and the audience can handle it. That second show saturday was it's just one of those things that's never going to happen again. Fortunately i recorded it on my phone. Oh fuck who. Who am i going to leave my phone too. I got to put that phone. I put my phone code somewhere where people can get it. In case something happens. I have to give somebody my phone code. I'm going to raffle my phone code off but yes so it was very productive all five shows and you know people were very nice. Mid western people. The people clementines ice cream. The publicists there julie. She's been hooking me up with ice cream. Which i don't really need. But they make this amazing ice cream there this place and it's like you know ninety percent butterfat or something's fucking nuts and and they've sent it to me here but i'd never been to the store and i got there and the a bunch of them come from the ice cream place in the next day tamara. The woman who owns a five clementines ice cream places in in saint louis is like. Let me show you around like there seemed to be some sort of concerted effort on behalf of the city to make me assess it properly like hey man we get it. Missouri sucks but this town. This city is okay man. it's okay we got cool food. We got ice cream and we got like free museums man and good record stores and decent people and kind of wild old brick architecture get on board.

"Right. Let's do this how are you. What the fuckers. What the fuck buddies. What the fuck knicks. what's happening high. A marc maron. This is my podcast. Wpf welcome to it. We've got a great run shows. I hope you're enjoying yourself outside of the in memoriam shows which are also great but have sad intent. They're not intended to be sad. That's maybe not the right word. The reason that they're re showcased is sad. Loss is sad and it's part of life. I don't want to be negative. Look man today. David chases on the show and Obviously many of you know him from the the sopranos. He was the creator of the sopranos. One of the greatest television shows ever and before that he was a tv writer on many shows including the rockford files northern exposure. But as you'll find in our conversation in his heart he always wanted to be a filmmaker and now is this time. Well he made a movie or two but this he wrote the script for the movie coming out now that he was supposed to direct but he he he couldn't We chat about that. We chat about that but he wrote the script for the new movie that many saints of newark which deals with the characters from the sopranos in the late sixties. And it's great. It's it's if especially if you love the sopranos if you know the sopranos and you know those characters to see these actors doing them when they were younger men is really A treat and gandolfini kid plays gandolfini. Plays tony and he's east tremendous. I think you'll enjoy it. So i talked to him in a bit. Who didn't fucking love that show though. I think it was the second season of glow where i when i wasn't shooting which was a lot. I watched the entire run every episode of the sopranos. On my phone. I couldn't stop 'cause i remember. I'm old enough to remember when the sopranos aired on. Hbo and it was a my recollection. It was the first time where you like every sunday. You kind of there was a few shows that hbo is doing before streaming where it actually gave your week. Some sort of meaning you. I gave you something to look forward to depending what you did with your life or maybe you were excited every day. I think the ones that really got people doing that. We're probably six feet under mad men and the sopranos where sunday night. You're like you got home to watch it. it was. It was something to look forward to. I think that's sort of the downside of the streaming thing everything. All the time is is not great because then you gotta wait a year. You know when the kind of a dull dolled out once a week had a natural sort of build to it absorbed differently and then you had to wait a year at least every week you were occupied. It wasn't just three days of staying up and watching all of something but whatever you know the it was great. It's a great show. And i and i and i miss it. I think it was very exciting. I mean look. Every episode was amazing but most of them are great characters. Were great god damn man. Gandolfini was so fucking good imperial all of them. Eighty alco fucking brilliant man a. We're all getting old. But i'm gonna talk to david chase. It's going to happen..
