Minnesota Experiences Record Exodus As Crime Rates Soar
"And when you look at what the FBI classifies as part one crimes, which are the most serious crimes for murder through arson, Minnesota now for the very first time in its history has a worse than average per CAPiTA rate of serious part one crimes. So the idea that Tim walls is somehow maintained a low crime rate is pure fiction. And in fact, it's like saying that the evil fruits of liberal policies in Minnesota just as we're seeing them in places like California and New York. And the thing I want to turn to now, John feeling is something that you have been studying closely now for some years and that is migration patterns into and out of the state of Minnesota because what we're seeing is Minnesota is just like California and New York. Instead of moving into the state, people are moving out of the state. Absolutely. And one thing that's notable is you talked about Minnesota's economic growth earlier. It was kind of lagged since the turn of the century. It's also true that all through the 90s in a net inflows of domestic migrants. That kind of flipped around the turn of the century and you start to see the outflows. But what's really notable is the massive acceleration in the exodus of people from the state of Minnesota since 2019. Funnily enough. We've seen we had about 14,000 people on net. I thought maybe it was 16,000. I think leave in the year 2019 to 2020. The figures got revised up subsequently. So I think it's about 16,000. That's on net loss. And that was a record for going back to at least 1991. Records stood for one year because we smashed it in the most recent year when we lost 19,400 residents on net to other parts of the United States. So whenever someone tries to hold Minnesota and Tim watts up and say, this is the guy, this is the model that works. I always say to people if it's so great, why is everyone to get out?

Sebastian Welcomes the Iconic Joe Piscopo to the Show
"Brother from another mother, Joe Piscopo. Welcome to America first one on one. It's great to see you, doctor. Yeah, we did. It's amazing. We met. We first met the hallways of a.m. 9 70. I think we just kind of had to click. You're a fun guy. I mean, you know, there's so much crazy, serious news, but it's nice to see you on a great sense of humor, my friend. Right, I had to do that. That was just too irresistible, but you know, I'm a regular guest on your show. I don't usually have radio hosts for a radio host for our one on one deep dive, but there's so much that you can share with our millions of listeners across the nation. I think we had to do this. So first things first, let's find out a little bit about this man. I can tell you who doesn't know how to spell Jersey. He spells it with a Z so follow him on Twitter at JR ZY Jersey Joe Piscopo. His website is Joe Piscopo U.S., but you haven't always been a radio guy. So for those who are unfamiliar with your Hollywood years and then your comedic stardom on SNL, would you give us a kind of encapsulated life to date? How did you get to being on a.m. 9 70 in New York? And what did you do before that, Joe? You know, when I went to college, I went to a little school in Jacksonville, said I couldn't get in anywhere else. I was the worst student in the state of New Jersey, you know. So my father, God rest his soul, said, look, there's a school that will accept you as the Jacksonville Florida is a little school called Jones college and they had radio stations. They had four radio stations and right then I fell in love with radio. There was an a.m.. There was a 100,000 watt FM station where I did and this is when I was in college. I was the disc jockey 6 to midnight doing beautiful music. The last 15 minutes you've heard about the body and raindrops keep falling on my head. That was that was my hang on, hang on, you had a 6 hour shift, Joe. Oh man, I'll tell you what. They used to put us into 8 hour shifts. 7 hour shifts, you know? So yes, it was a 6 it was 6 to midnight at go to school all day and I'd hang right there in the studio and we had turntables that we had turntable. So I used to. I'm far too young. What is this turntable you speak of, mister Pope?

Newsmax's John Bachman Shares a Memory of R.E.M.
"High school, Aryan was just getting started in Athens. Okay, the B-52s, you know, Ariana would just get started. And Michael saw it and the rest of them would play and you brought up this and I want you to emphasize this a little bit. 40 watt club. Georgia club. I mean, the not owl, which used to be out for country out there off of full 41 north. We're seeing and there's still all those scenes today. These new bands, these new, you know, that new music is coming out of. But Michael sobbing and they would do a buddy of mine, Steve McNeil, he used to go down and to Athens and they would play a set and then they'd sit out in the bar and just hang out with everybody. And that was another cool thing too about it is, you know, I never got the chance to see REM play at the 40 watt and one of those impromptu sets. But what I did see is a lot of members of REM and other bands, David schools, or Mike Mills, or maryam, just hanging out at the bars. And when I would go, I mean, I remember there was a brief period of time and I believe it was the summer of 2000 spring of 2000. I had gone to see a band called the old 97s at the 40 watt, and I was going up to the bar to grab a beer and I looked over and it's Mike Mills next to me and I kind of gave him a nod and a knowledge we was, he obviously had no idea who I was. And then a little while later, radiohead played a concert at Stone Mountain in a very small venue. It was amazing to be there. And I saw Mike Mills again, he kind of bumped into each other, and it was that sign, again, he didn't know who I was, but he knew that I knew who he was and we had both been too amazing concerts and brief period of time and he kind of gave me that sign of acknowledgment like, all right, kid. You obviously have good choice in music.

Ride Along in Watts
"Good morning, everybody. I'm your sitting host omelet and obie. I had to take some time today to talk about an issue that is near and dear to my heart. And that is law enforcement. Here in LA, I've had some very interesting run ins with law enforcement in my support of the work that they do. And this is not to negate the real instances of police brutality or police malpractice, but to say that that is not the majority of police officers in law enforcement. These are amazing men and women who are choosing to take on the job of protecting the people around them and working within their communities. And the police officers that I know, I will say, are wonderful men and women who are not only police officers, but they are teachers. They are parents. They are social workers in the work that they're doing, and they really are just doing amazing work day in and day out and working to shine the best light on their profession. Now, one of the craziest stories that I've ever been through, one of the craziest experience that I've ever had is doing a ride along in watts here in south central LA. I've done many of these now in the past couple of years because I'm well acquainted with police and talk about the work that they do quite often. But one time I was on a ride along late at night and driving down a residential area in watts when all of a sudden we noticed a car had been crashed straight into a tree. Of course, the police officers had to get out and respond in a woman ran into the streets screaming about how they needed paramedics. She was covered in blood, wearing gloves, little did we know that she was a nurse who was not working at the time. And as the police officers ran over to the car, they found that behind it was a young man who had been shot to death. By a gang in the area and in the neighborhood. And when I tell you that so many of the people living in these areas are desensitized to gun violence, there were young kids sitting outside watching as this man passed away right on the street. And who's there to respond to it? None other than your LAPD police officers who are seeing violence like this and death and destruction far too often in far more than any human should ever have to.

The Seahawks are playoff bound as Jim Bernard reports.

Gino Smith overcame two Jalen Ramsey interceptions and passed for 213 yards and a touchdown while Kenneth walker rushed for 114 yards. The dolphins have extended their season. Denny cap has details. Three Jason Sanders field goals are all the dolphins need to squeak into the playoffs and beat the jets 11 to 6. Sanders kicked the game winner from 50 yards out with 18 seconds left, and a battle of third string quarterbacks it was rookie 7th round draft pick, Skylar Thompson, who did just enough to send his team to the postseason. Seeing a win and feeling a win is important and especially going into the playoffs. Going to buffalo, which is a very good football team. We're going to be confident. Thompson completed 20 to 31 for a 152 yards and no interceptions to help the dolphins snap a 5 game skid. The Bengals beat the ravens 27 16 to avoid a coin flip for home field when the two teams meet again in the AFC playoffs next weekend. Cincinnati scored touchdowns off three first half turnovers by quarterback Anthony Brown. Joe burrow was 25 of 42 for 215 yards one touchdown and no interceptions. If he didn't win this one, I guess technically we would have won the division, but wouldn't have felt like it. So it's good to get this one. We're going to have to play better next week to get the win. Especially me. The bills played inspired ball less than a week after teammate demar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest during a game.

A Conversation on the Connection Between Police and Community
"Dion did LeBron James ever follow up with you on that request. No. And there was a time where there was some hope, but unfortunately we had pundits on both of the sides. I'm not a political person. I can't stand the extreme left or the extreme right. Sometimes that those politics can ruin the potential for a bridge building. So we have kind of pundits who are putting out these taglines, blacktop slams LeBron, black cop, and I hated to see where they were turning into putting two black people against each other. And then we also had some people in the media. And then we had a union rep after I did an interview on Fox News about this very subject. Come on after me and say, oh, LeBron James needs to be arrested. I'm like, for what? He was just expressing himself. He just needs to be educated. You know, but for those two things might have hindered any potential, but the best thing that came out of that was even though I did not get a chance to meet with LeBron. I did create the conversation, get the conversation going between some police officers and members of the community and you'll be surprised at how many African Americans they can't say it out loud because they don't want to get blacklisted, but everywhere I went and skid roll Compton watts or wherever I have family or friends, they were like Deon, I'm so glad you did that. And it's sad they can't say it out loud, but they were really proud of what happened. And of course, I had some haters. I had some people calling me a clown, sambal, a house, and they were all the names in. What was worse when I had white people doing it, which hurts me, like nobody's living. When white people are trying to tell me how I'm supposed to think, that just drives me insane. As a black man, you shouldn't, you know, that gave me generational deja vu, because my great, great grandfather, as a black man, they told him that he couldn't own businesses. And we couldn't walk on the sidewalk and because he chose to run a business in a town where he wasn't supposed to and walking a sidewalk, a 16 year old white child killed him. So I thank you for not putting a bullet in my head, but no one's going to tell me as a black man who I can be what I can speak to and how I feel. So those are the things that came out of it that were negative. But for the most part, I had a lot of support for people and it was a blessing. It was a blessing.

Finding Truth in an Uber

Not a logical question. What are you doing? I said, I give lectures. Oh, did I mention he was a black man, as a black driver? Because what do you do when I give lectures? And usually, even though it's odd to me because you'd think there would be a follow-up like on watt. He did that, he goes on what subjects, though I said pretty much everything about life about men and women about politics about religion about psychology and he said, well, they didn't let him go. Well, what's your basic message? Am I thinking, listen? Is this the time to alienate my companion here, the driver? On the other hand, I have to tell the truth. So I said, I speak the basic theme of my speaking is the collapse of western civilization. And I was certain it would end in the conversation. And the guy goes, I could not agree more. This woke stuff is ruining the world.

"Again. In 1959, four years after a deal left, the city of LA issued an order to tear the towers down. They feared that they were unsafe that they would fall, but local artists and activists rallied. And after some protests, the city agreed to complete a stress test on the towers. You know, it is mind-blowing it has been mind-blowing also for the engineers themselves. The watch towers, they have a foundation that was excavated by him by hand with a sharp only 14 inches into the ground. And despite rodi's unique, handcrafted building techniques. The watts towers passed, they were declared structurally sound. A few years later, in 1961, local artists like Noah periphery, judson Powell, and Sue Welsh got together and cofounded the watts towers arts center. Its headquartered right next to the towers, and their goal was to build partnerships between community leaders and artists. And the towers became kind of icon and rallying point for a vibrant black arts community. They still are. As a monument they been very, very important for the people that live in watts. They're very respected. In 1990, rodeo's towers were declared a National Historic Landmark and a California historic landmark. An it meant that towers were now protected. So in 2010, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art partnered with the city of Los Angeles to conserve the towers because even though they withstood Southern California's earthquakes and years of Santa Ana winds, mother nature had still inflicted a bit of damage. Enter Elizabeth and her team the conservation work began in 2017. When the earthquakes, the Portland cement started to crack in certain areas, water will go into the cracks and reach the armature. The corrosion builds up on the metal and it pushes the mortar away so that cracks will become very big and then more water will get in. So it was, it's like a circle, you know, I never end. So our job was to in very simple world to seal.

I was born in Italy which is a huge percentage of artwork in the world is in Italy. This is Elizabeth perfetti. She grew up in Milan. So, you know, you grew up surrounded by art and I have to say that I never really take it for granted. I was always smarter than you know in front of a work of art. There's a huge role in Milan, the Duomo. And I remember just going to school and going by with the bus every day and every day, I will marvel. It was like, guys, Peter, for the first time. The architectural artwork of Milan caught her eye, but it was something smaller and shinier that really hooked Elizabeth. To I think I was like 13 and I remember being in this particular exhibition in Milan where it was displayed these Roman dolls that were found in an archeological excavation and it was a dull made of ivory. And it was a very tiny, like the size of a little bit smaller than a Barbie doll. Dissolved had all the joints were moving and he had little holes in the ears and should play with these treasure chests with all these jewelry. The exhibit also showcased how the doll was preserved. And Elizabeth became obsessed. From that early age, she knew she wanted to do that kind of work. And as a high schooler, she applied for an art conservation program in Florence. The process to try to get into the school is very competitive and so I kind of drove my family crazy that summer because I wanted to get in and so I was starting so much. The studying paid off, Elizabeth got into the program, and when she graduated, she didn't have to look very far for work. Her home country of Italy supplied her with enough work for a lifetime. From artwork to cathedrals to castles, even private residences in Italy are often old enough to need conservation. But eventually, she was looking for a change. You know, I wanted to learn something new. In 2016, Elizabeth left Italy, and she moved to Los Angeles. She worked at the Getty museum's conservation program and did some building conservation work. But then, in 2018, she moved to lacma. The LA county Museum of Art. And lacma had partnered with the city of LA in an effort to preserve something truly special. The watts towers. Like something out of a fantasy book, these cone shaped towers of angled steel, covered in cement, wire with all of these found materials that shimmer with rainbow hues. And all of those 17 towers were built by one man. Sabado rodeo. I personally went down the rabbit hole when I started to work there. I read probably everything that it told there about him. But there wasn't that much to go on. Because part of the problem is that rodeo wasn't that forthcoming. He never gave the same answer twice. Even his name was slippery. He went by sabado, but then some people called him Simon, sometimes Sam. Here is what we do know. Rodea immigrated from Italy with his brother around 1894. When he was about 15, he didn't have much education, and so he made a living doing physical labor, working at rock quarries, logging, at railroad camps, and as a tile setter. The next big thing we know about rodeo is that he bought property in 1921. As an immigrant, rodeo wasn't allowed to buy just anywhere. But like African Americans at the time, rodeo was able to buy in the watts area, which wasn't actually part of LA yet. We also know that rodeo was looking for something specific. He was very particular about the shape of the land that he wanted for his property. He had to be triangular. 1765 east one O 7 street. It was the last property on a dead end street with railroad tracks nearby. And it was noisy and dusty with frequent passing of trains and street cars. But for odia, it was perfect for what he had in mind. So he found this triangular piece of land in watts and he started to build what today is one of the most amazing landscape that you've ever seen out of the imagination of a person. Any spare moment he had after work on weekends, rodia forged for broken tiles for glass, clay, steel, wire, anything that he could use to build his towers. All by himself. And he called his garden nuestro Pueblo, or our town. Some accounts say that rodea had recently quit drinking. And that these towers were his way to stay away from the bottle. In my mind, this is the work of a man that uses this as some sort of therapy, you know, some sort of redemption if you want to say, sometimes I wonder, you know, if everybody that one food tough times will put is energy into something like this, we will have so many amazing things. It's a good answer. I like that as a sort of general recovery plan for all sorts of things. These towers aren't just visually amazing though, they are also kind of an engineering feat. Rodea had no background in architecture. And he seems to have more or less improvised the plans. He poured a cement foundation and then to build the towers, rodea bent pieces of scrap metal, wrapped mesh around them, and covered them in cement. And the towers they're all wired to each other. They all sort of hold each other up. Rodea completed the 17 towers in 1955. After 33 years of work. And not long after he left. He just handed the deed over to his neighbor. The city of LA became aware of his towers, and rodeo was reportedly tired of haggling over the permits for his creation. So he moved to Northern California. And he never returned to the watts towers.

"So when you walk into this garden, you feel more like you're in a place like Alice in Wonderland or Dr. Seuss. The gardens in question are in watts, a neighborhood in south Los Angeles. And at these gardens, you'll see a few sculptures, some mosaics. But the centerpiece are the watts towers. 17 interconnected towers that shoot up from the ground like inverted ice cream cones. The tallest reaching over a hundred feet. And they really are like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. They've got this dreamy kind of wobbly feel. Like you might see the cat in the hat mischievously climb up one and perch on top. These towers are covered with all kinds of local found materials. So we have glasses. We have ceramic tiles. We have pieces of pottery shells. I mean, you name it. And these materials shimmer in the sunlight. So when you see these sculptures from far away, they almost look like jewels, you know, these huge gigantic tools and they're just incredible. I'm doing the rest, and this is Atlas obscura. A celebration of the world's strange, incredible, and wondrous places. Today we'll be traveling to Los Angeles to learn more about the watts towers. The story of the man who spent 30 years creating them and of the conservator who's working to save and preserve them. After this..

He had a great helper. But he quickly learned that they needed to draw more people and they needed to a bigger audience. And so what they did is they opened the doors in the evening and took turns giving lectures. The various professors and invited the public and it was 5 bucks. And it supported the academy and his lectures immediately became very popular and well attended. And I remember when I was little, he was still giving these and I would come over and slide down the banisters out in this big old building. He would be in there talking to all these people. And so a guy that this kind of spread out to the coffeehouses, you get to know some of the beat poets and they would do poetry and they say, Allen, get up and say something. And in that crowd, there was a guy named Henry Jacobs Henry sandy Jacobs, who eventually became my father's archivist and recorder, but eventually became my father in law. They were good friends. They lived across the canyon from them in a homestead valley near mill valley. And but Henry did he was what they call a community programmer at KPFA in Berkeley. And he did a show called the wide weird world of shorty peterston, which was about this jazz musician that he'd made up. And it was really funny. And he all kinds of different episodes. But he encouraged my father to come over and volunteer and give talks. So when I was a little kid, sandy would show up and they would get in his car and head off to Berkeley. And my father would record a talk on Saturday night that would be rebroadcast on Sunday morning. And this started in it started in the year I was born in 1953.

You know, whenever we were talking on the phone the other day, you told me about something that I thought was really fascinating. And that was that you were trying to identify these three inroads to your father's work, which would basically be and tell me if I'm not describing this. Properly. But someone who perhaps had either no reference of your father's work or had some reference, but we're looking for somewhere how to get to the core, like what are these ways that you could really get in there and kind of get the foundation and what you shared with me as we were talking was beautiful but I'd love if you could share each of those three inroads and then we'll just kind of talk about each one. Sure. You know, it's different now. There was a time when people had only read my father's books and when they came across the audio they were just astonished and these were back in the radio days of the 90s and even going as far back as the 70s. But now it's very different in that most of the people that come to the works have heard a little bit either through social media. They get something or somebody directs them to a YouTube piece and somehow they're introduced to him saying something that is very magical to them. So they usually come with a lot of enthusiasm and but there's kind of a phenomenon about it that I kind of compare it to when Joseph Campbell's works were big. There were people who really understood a lot of his messaging and then there were those kind of follow your bliss people. They got that deep into his stuff. And like this situation, it took an effort to sort of point them to what would resonate on a deeper level..

"Hey Friends what's going on? Welcome to the ASTRO hustle. I am Cory Allen. You are you and here we are together. In this moment of time, hopes if you're doing good today and that you're feeling all right, I've got a very special podcast here today. I just can't wait to share this with you. My guests on the show is Mark watts. Mark is a brilliant thinker, an audio archivist and the son of the great legendary writer Alan watts. In this beautiful podcast, Mark shares what he thinks the inroads are kind of the foundational aspects of his father's work, as well as tons of just great stories of growing up with them, traveling around with him, any shares the beautiful path of his own life and thinking and how his father helped influence that along the way. I know you're gonna love this episode. This podcast is sponsored by better help online therapy. Relationships take work. A lot of us will drop anything to help someone we care about. We'll go out of our way to treat other people well, but how often do we give ourselves the same treatment? Self care, taking care of you, making sure that you're feeling good and charged up in positive, is so important. And sometimes I can look like going to the gym, getting a haircut, whatever it might be, but other times it can look like getting therapy. So if you feel like something's interfering with your happiness, then I highly recommend talking to a therapist, at least once just to try it out and see how it feels to be. Better help is online therapy that offers videos, phone, and even live chat sessions with your therapist. So you don't have to see anyone on camera if you don't want to. It's much more affordable than in person therapy, and you can be matched with a therapist under 48 hours..

And now there's one that's getting people getting vaccines all over the world and now this one is a problem. I said you know in the south african defence wilson eighties who knows what they injected interest. I don't and obstacle survived so now things moving on Things that people are saying can to help with the khurana virus and preventing it and everything ultraviolet lamps they can can can kill. I'm gonna go through a list and then you can just tell me off. Those hand dryers edri's they can kill. Covert nineteen ultra-violet limbs can kill covert nineteen alcohol or even worse chlorine. All of your body that can kill in nineteen those just those okay. A in effect in any of those so unfortunately the on affecting those. I think the idea of the ultraviolet is that there was a few studies done to stop If there was any link between beds and listening the spread of tb but covert is not the same type of organism covert is a virus and tv is a mycobacterium which is completely different. So those two actually have no link. That's one of those you know i was just going back to what i'm saying people. They you know they they sort of pick at an idea but then spread information about idea but in terms of the sprang yourself with alcohol that definitely knocking to kill the virus because the viruses inside of your body I definitely believe that hand. Sanitizer thing is a great way to not transmit the virus from one person to the knicks. Because if it is on your hands you have a better chance of removing whatever germs. They are on your hands with with. Dj alkyl those sorts of things however if somebody coughs in the room you know oh somewhere around you or you know. It's it's spread through Either through you know through to able insurance mission or what. We're seen hospitals as well. Is the fecal route as well. So conservatizing angie is good. But it's not going to prevent it from you know if somebody Cuffs ended it into your system once in your system. There's nothing you can do on the outside. That is gonna kill it and please don't go and drink a whole bottle of vodka something because that's just gonna cause alcohol poisoning is not to kill the the device once it is inside of your body either so many stories about that One of the things that. I always say to somebody if you to cuff. Please stay faraway so that you can faulk off and sometimes doesn't go down as well as could. The other thing is erica. Any old people can get covered. Let's definitely not true In fact with the the third way that we are seeing now most elderly people were actually vaccinated or a big population limo vaccinated so chain really the population that was being admitted to hospital. What will the younger people because they hadn't been vaccinated yet and so if you feel like you're twenty years old was the two years old and you'll save that is completely incorrect. You are as much at risk of having covert and your much risk of having dad. Kobe I've seen multiple patients. That all twenty five to fifty years old to have landed up in icu.

"That like it was charlie that was making mic dance as well and when you see that incredible physically that's coming from that kind of circuit right from troy. But i think i think also that to your point about dance music. I think that. Charlie watts represents like this common root of all this popular music. Think about jazz and rock is sort of like these. You know bifurcated things or whatever. But it's like charlie's coming out of a time when jazz was dance music as well. That's the role the drummer for him. It's like making people making people move and these. These distinctions between these styles are fairly irrelevant. When you get to the point of charlie watts. And i think that i wonder how many more drummers out there there are were that those are so converged in one person aside from you know a ring or something like that like we're really getting to the end of that generation where all that stuff was so commonly linked. We were lucky enough for many years. for decades. after the beatles broke up for decades and decades. You could go and see the rolling stones like sure bill cameron wasn't there. You know brian jones wasn't there either. But it still was the stones There you could pretty much say you saw this thing that changed the world was right in front of your eyes and that wa. I kind of hope that they still do play. And i think they'll be great with steve jordan but it won't be that stones. I think we're really lucky. Does this report a little later. That we we got to see. And i think that's part of as much as we're mourning for charlie in particular. It's it's also hard not to two more net that that connection to the original thing yet and he never lost that and even if you went to see it turns out the Shows from the summer of twenty nineteen. Those were the last stone shows so thinking about the last time i ever saw charlie with the stones that was like god that was his last show ever was just a couple of weeks later him playing honky tonk women another great example of a song that is barely asong. Except it's just charlie do your thing and we'll bill in the parts around you like and that's basically what honky-tonk is and when charlie was playing that song it never reached the point where people were sitting back and going. Oh i remember this one. This brings back fond memories like it was a you know. Get up and move song. And charlie took pride in that. He cared deeply about that. You know that ethic and like you said you know making mic dance you know and making sure everybody was dancing to that one. He never surrendered him into that. Yeah i think watching that again watching that that shine a light thing like yeah somehow this incredibly band of incredibly old guys like the show still feels like wild it still feels like this weird wired edge to it and that is mick sure and that is keith. Sure but again. Like where's that pulse of that coming from you know what i mean like. You're saying it doesn't feel like an old east show like somehow and that has to have something to do charley right and because we've been talking about the beatles and ringo like you go see ringo and his all star band and reno is drumming and drumming fantastically for a large part of the show. And when he's not drumming up and dancing he's you know it's something about. I don't know what it is. These drummers they age like so gracefully because don't lose touch with the physicality and the vitality of it and that sense of rhythm. I mean it's really amazing like how we're seeing this age of drummers just fantastically aging with almost insane reserves vitality but charlie watts absolutely that never lost the stroke thanks so much sue rob sheffield and hank steamer. That.

"People are saying so much that. I didn't expect that this would affect me the way it did but charlie put him is the working musician you know. I was really excited to see him back on the road back with the stones as more excited about my next stone. Show than my first one with charlie. There was always a sense. He was a working musician. He was in it for the long haul and i wanted to hear him. Next time i was curious about the worke still had ahead of it. I mean you know stating the obvious but we just hadn't lost a member of the rolling stones for quite some time vista fixed. Yes so there's there's just a broader thing about that. It's just. I mean everyone understood that we're talking about eight year old man and and even you know had he stayed healthy and around. There was gonna be a finite limit of how no one had ever been rocky road drummer into their eighties. It just hasn't been done so there was he was already pushing the physical limits of this thing. And it's and that's worth talking about as well one of the things that the other guys in the band. Because i did all these stones interviews over the years. And i don't think i ever talked to charlie once. He just didn't talk but what they would say about him is that he was in pain. After the shows in the later years like he was he would have to himself down at best and that all that effortlessness was actually a lot of effort. But the other thing is in hanky pie. Speak to this. Is that drummers have always said to member trae cool from green day and other people saying that the the only way that you can keep going is to be more like charlie watts as far as playing correctly and not trying to destroy the drum kit and just getting yourself into into a proper way of playing as possible or else you're hopeless so there was data. I mean. I think his jazz trained sort of approach allowed him to keep going beyond. What many drummers could ever manage right yeah. I mean he didn't smash the drums. And i think that's again. I mean just think about all the contemporaries and just sort of like what became of them. You know like whether it's keith moon or or bottom or whoever i mean you know and also you can look at the size of his kid too. I think that's an obvious thing. That's easy to overlook. I mean he's sitting there playing just a little for peace for peace kid like he never. He never sort of felt the need to fill the stage up with that and it wasn't an athletic display with him. You know what. I mean and drumming. Is you know there's a theatrical element of it you know and i mean you can speak a bottom. You can speak up. Like dave grow ever but i think people in general they like to see a drummer like sort of kicking kicking the crap out of the kid. And that's that's a fun thing to watch but charlie. He took a different path. He would often talk about like a player. Like joe. morello. The day. Brubeck drummer. And i think if you if you look at clips of a player like that who was about like the sophistication the finesse. And that's what's exciting. About watching a joe morello as opposed to And rabbits way interesting. You say you say elvin jones who who who is hard really hard hitting player and kind of you know. How deep rumbling sound and and charlie was. It was just much more streamlined. I've just been sort of like a being a lot of the early stones. Like seventy stuff and then kind of flashing forward to like eighties nineties beyond and just thinking about you know. There's all these like we said. There's all these sort of paradoxes about about this guy but the thing that keeps striking me as somebody who's who's like sent. Rhythmic sensibilities are coming out of like the forties and fifties. And then who's playing these very streamlined. Backbeat that made a lot of sense. Let's say in the sixties and then somehow this rhythmic language translates completely to to almost a disco. Feel on something like miss. You and again. I'm sure you too can cite a lot of other examples of of just somehow the same charlie. Watts rhythm made sense in these later times without really much of an adjustment at all like how is that possible. I think part of it is just his very lack of attachment to rock and roll as a thing meant that he psalm selfish. Just a sort of a drummer as a professional drummer. And if the style shifting a little bit the same way a big band drummer might shift to the next thing. Because you're a working musician. I think it was part of that. Mentality it's not. I mean it's only if you're very into yourself right. I think that you would refuse to shift styles and listen to what people are doing and move if thought of yourself as this as some monster of rock who does their thing. I won't do anything else then. It might be harder. But i think he was just i think he he had ears and was just willing and interested to adapt i. I'm talking one of the interviews about about the meters that that came well after you know his formative years but he he was obviously listening very closely to that so he i think that's a lot of it. Rob how do you see. It will definitely i mean he was always a part of. It is just the marvel that the stones especially in the eighties when all the other bands of their generation. We're making all the mistakes that the stones weren't making at that time everybody was getting really into over dubs and textures and and and super over processing their sound. In lots of ways and charlie was always committed to forward momentum he was always making it repulsive and progressive. And that's why when you listen to the stones and if you were listening in nineteen eighty one compared to new record by other like top tier rock bands that year. The stones were the ones who are like..

"A lot of this in ringo starr to me. This is what we think of when we think of that generation of british that's why we love the feel of these players especially those two because they're like the backbeat kings but yeah absolutely. I think that it's all about like laying back and really. How do you drive the band while also somehow seeming relaxed. I think that was whatever. When marvel that charlie watts like when watching it how like how could he be so unflappable in the midst of this kind of like very like charged atmosphere. It's almost like he likes centered the thing with his personality. Somehow it rob. I know you've written about his blatantly seeming unimpressed by like the circus of the stones or whatever kind of the peacock nature of mick jagger or something like that it's just like this was evident is personality and it was like he just kept everything on an even keel which again has nothing to do with like ginger baker would do or something like that would be all about sort of like providing his own. Kind of like thunderous commentary and really. You're charging ahead and watches. Like no. I'm gonna i'm gonna like keep this baseline and you can set a watch by it. You know totally. I remember reading an interviewer charlie. Watts said that when he was on stage with the stones he would fantasizing his head that he was elvin jones and that he would just be pretending he was elvin jones on stage which is such a mind blowing. It blew my mind to read that as a teenager. Because i thought everybody else's fantasizing about being charlie watts but to him he was like this is okay. But it's not elvin jones. Well well yeah. I mean it's absolutely fascinating again. Like these interviews. What he was talking to chad smith or many of the other ones like he's talking about having like he's collecting tony williams ride cymbals or mel lewis's like green sparkle drum kit and putting them in a warehouse and even he is saying like. I don't even know why i have this stuff. I don't even know what i intend to do with it. It's just more that like he was so he was so enamored of that art form and in a way robe-like as you pointed out that he just didn't seem to be with rock and roll like rocky. It was almost dismissive like the way that he would talk about it. Like this whole thing about you know. I think that quote was progression. Was miles davis playing modal jazz. You can't do that in rock or something. And it's like it's amazing that this like not being impressed with that idiom was somehow what allowed him to be to excel in it or something totally because he. I mean that that really kinda sums it up that he became the greatest of rock and roll drummers because he was aspiring to something so it kept him from being unselfconsciously about it. I mean a lot of like what you said about that. Generation of british players being often very jazz influenced sometimes in ways that were really kind of showy and silly you know like a lot of like the british musicians from that generation would do something like cover cork by hat on a record or something like that as a yes. I've listened to these records kind of like flashing their cards of credit whereas like charlie. Watts never did anything like that. On stage or on a record he was very focused. It's almost like the way you're describing it. What he took from jazz is almost like a an ethic. You know a code of a jazz drummer. Does this serves this. It's not about getting attention. Yeah and when you saw him play like i was. I was just watching a clip. I think he was on like the dennis miller show with his jazz quintet in the nineties. And it's just it's incredible because he was always named checking people like tony williams like these super progressive type jazz. When you saw him play jazz. It sounded like one thousand nine hundred fifty or even earlier. You know what i mean like. He's just sitting there very gently like playing. You know he. He was very happy company role in those contexts as well. He's sitting here. Playing brushes behind bernard fowler. Singing like lieberman or something like that. And also there was that amazing He had this orchestra in the eighties. Which i was sort of unfamiliar with until recently. But but he sort of stocked it with all these jazz musicians and there are actually three drummers in it. And he's kind of just like sitting back and letting john stevens who's this really notices like free jazz free improv drummer. Like basically play the leading role and even in that context. It has his name on it. He's just like almos- you have to really pay attention. Even remember that. Charlie watts a sitting there. It's really remarkable how self-effacing he could be you know it's interesting to read interviews with him including the previously unpublished. Michael gilmore interview that we posted on rolling stone dot com. Which i recommend you know the extent to which keith specifically introduced charlie to allow this music. That meant everything to to making keith. He made him sort of listen to elvis presley as a musician. He had heard elvis like everyone else's generation but he hasn't really been paying attention to that way pay attention to dj fontana whoever's playing and what was good about it and it seems like keith. In that way you can talk stones and all of them have that record collector gig side to them. Which is so fascinating that i've talked to this before. But you know you just start mic talking about blues harmonica monica. And all of a sudden this entirely different person emerges where he's just literally geeking out and is so extraordinary and that's who they were they. Were you know toting these records but they were making keith. We're toting differ records and in the way that your friend like it might not be your core thing but it's the thing that teaches you about new learn it. That's how he learned the rock and roll stuff. Probably even the record stuff was came from keith. And he did of course learn and respect stuff. It just wasn't like his core stuff. I which is very interesting to me. Rabbi wonder if you could just talk about charlie as the persona as well just like the character of charlie watts that we got to know over six decades. He was someone who famously was married to the same woman for fifty seven years while being a member of the rolling stones that combination is so much cognitive dissonance and even the other stones were really kind of blown away by it. I mentioned in my tribute. A fantastic nine hundred. Eighty one cover story on keith interview and the question is do you in the stones. Do you hang out when you're not making music together. You know each other socially and keats only response to that is to start talking about charlie and how he gets to. Charlie visits every couple of months. He doesn't mention anybody else in the band or even notice that they might be like obviously interviewers hoping he's got some making keep hanging out off the clock stories and keep cannot. Stop talking about charlie into how much he wants charlie to approve of him and that was always some of the fascinating things that all the other stones were competing with each other to be charlie's favorite. So there's the beautiful dynamic that i always loved whenever mick would out a solo album and people would attack it and keith would say something really funny and nasty in public about how terrible the latest mix l. album was in mixed retort was always well charlie liked it and it was like that was the quarterfinal opinion that they could all agree to you. And you really tell mick. Did not care whether keep these records. He only worried about whether charlie said that he liked them. And keep only worried about what charlie thought of him. As a musician or person he had that mystique that was so intimidating to the other stones and nobody ever intimidated the rolling stones. And that was part of the the charlie mystique and for those of us who were mtv kids and we grew up seeing the stones videos like start me up to classic one hang fire another classic one you know mixes up front like prancing away genius keith. And ronnie or posing and bill wyman is in the back rolling his eyes and there's these funny moments earnings videos where mick turns away from the camera and you can see and tries to make contact with charlie just to get facial expression out of him and it's funny how it just does not work. There's a couple of moments in the video. Are charlie's like oh my god you wanna facial expression fine fine. I'll try but that's not what he did. And that's of goes back to. The sort of the jazz code tank was talking about that. You know he was. He was a working musician. Not a star. And i think that's part of the reason that his death is hitting everybody so hard. I'm always surprised..

"Of the rolling stones died august. Twenty four th at the age of eighty and a half with me to talk about his life and his legacy is playing hang steamer and rob sheffield. Thanks for joining me. Guys thank you. Thanks for having us anklet star with you. I mean you're a great person to have with us. Today is our resident actual drummer and also something of an expert jazz. Which is something that charlie juyuan extensively. That was what he loves was jazz and jazz drummers. Maybe just talk a little bit about what charlie took from. Jazz has roots and jazz and some of the drummer's who influence them and how they influenced him. Yeah well you know. Just just listening to the interviews over the past few days. Jazz was an and. I got this little bit from chad smith red peppers when i talked to him because he had an interview charlie back in two thousand eighteen. But really if anyone seemingly sat down and talk to charlie watts about music about anything he would always direct the conversation back to jazz and it wasn't just sort of like a like a name checking thing like his knowledge went incredibly deep. You know he talked to to chat about how she hamilton. On the early gerry mulligan recordings was a big influence. He talk about. You know. Miles davis benny goodman charlie parker constantly. I mean he was he was like a real head. He talked about how a friend his friend and he used to. Sort of sit around like you. They had their credits. Memorized on. The louis armstrong. Hot five and hot seven recordings. This was the you know the kind of the soil that he came out of like as a fan and rob mentioned in his in his great tribute that his engagement with rock and roll was just sort of not. That's not where he was coming from at the time that he entered the stones. But i think that. I think that charlie watts. I think there's a you know. It's it's often said with so many of these rock drummers generation. I think it's often said that these people are coming out of jazz. And i think you can say this out of so many people whether it's ginger baker a rough contemporary or someone like bill ward or bill bradford or john bottom. I mean it's a whole generation of british rock drummers who are coming out of jazz. I think it's interesting though to look at like you know what they took out of it and i think that someone like ginger baker who was obviously a super flamboyant player. You know very interested in like you know playing solos and just really like kind of being out front in a way that maybe a drummer buddy. Rich would be or an art blakey or one of these type. A jazz drummers. I think that it's not so simple to say that. Charlie watts is just like straight up coming out of jazz because it's more like you know what school are mindset of jazz because the fact that he cited chico hamilton on these gerry. Mulligan records is very telling chico hamilton. A west coast drummer. Who's very known for. Sort of tasteful understated playing. I've also heard. Charlie watts shout out. Paul motion of the early bill evans trio and very much these drummers who who were very comfortable and an accompanying role and essentially being background musicians and that and that not being like an insult or second class but just literally. That was their function in the band. Charlie watts off and talked about how he you know being a drummer. It's like he wasn't gonna sit around and play drums by himself. You know what i'm saying like he was he was very comfortable with the idea of accompanying and he often said he had no interest in playing drum solos. So i think that you do hear jazz in charlie watts. But it's almost like in this very subtle shading. You're not gonna hear him. Playing like tink tink traditional jazz. Rhythm like the way you might ginger baker peppering. That'd with cream these long like improvisational excursions. Charlie charlie watson's essentially a pop drummer working in like a backbeat format and he was very committed to the art and craft of of a backbeat and rob. I know you quoted that that amazing. From charlie where he was talking about how rock music is dance music to him like it wasn't a progressive music. It wasn't really about to him. Jazz representative progressive music rock more except you know represented kind of laying in the pocket and just kind of laying it down and i think that his art was really laying it down and also making it feel as i know that darryl jones the longtime bates for the stone says has referred to swagger that he brought to it and to me like. That's where the jazz comes. It's not like you're going to hear jazz figures in his playing. You're gonna hear like a sensibility to executing a backbeat and making it feel just giving it that sort of human feeling that that is you know it's like you could have a drum machine playing behind the rolling stones and some people might not notice it but you need that little he puts sort of like an i guess i would say like almost like a grease on it. There's a slight little little accent that he puts on the backbeat. That makes it. Just feel good at whatever tempo. He was playing. I think to me. That's the jazz and charlie watts. Well said i think max weinberg in a different interview pointed out that out. Jackson the stacks folk tremor was one of the guys who popularized this this thing that's so essential to what we think of groove is laying back on the backbeat which is literally playing the know the two in the four of every bar you playing in milliseconds after where a metronome play it right and so that's that's where a lot of the swing comes from. That's where a lot of the field comes from. And that's a huge thing that charlie watts tended to do right. yeah absolutely. I was listening to a k. Hear me knocking earlier and thinking about how the beat to that. It's just to the point where it would be late if he hit. It hit the snare later on that kind of like halftime. Beautiful halftime groove. On that i.

Can i mean you grow up stones fan and the drummer or you just speak to an influence on you and it him special when i was a kid I was allowed to watch like shit. I probably shouldn't be allowed to and so there was a show about vietnam called tour duty when i was about seven hundred. Eighty seven the closing theme song to the show was painted black. I was like this. Is the smoking song as a really little kid and watching you know like really crazy. Vietnam and By my dad you know maybe tapes stones but that once on always stuck out like you know as a kid you know of course as i got older got into music surreal and just got past the things like that You know the stones were one of the beatles stones for a couple of anti really knew a lot about and it's a weird it's like today of course i listen back in. I just what i heard is like oh i play drums like i tried to play trump. Chali walk. I don't i don't try to play like john bottom or phil what i tried to play like charlie and when you say when you say play like him what what was it about his feel or whatever you know the feel of the stones like this is like a hard kind of stop you now. It's just constantly into the backbeat and there's no bullshit you now and i think it's all brown sugar right where it's like. He's playing four tom. You know throughout the versus song just like the simple very simple natural. It's just a natural thing. Like what i remember about playing with stones size we get into meet. Meet down mullets. Being on stage looking up and seeing you know keith richards and runaway mick jagger looking over and i kind of hit this club note like it's four stop and four dollars at this bo. Diddley song it's like i did mess about. You can't really mess up. But i turn this nerve or something charlie charlie. And he's looking at his big smile. He knew he knew what i done of. Funny the other guys issue you different looks shirley no no. That's your drummer. He would have no and also you know that's a cool thing about the stones that they're holster. I think that they're gonna feel about the stones all always been about trying to find this kind of american swagger this you know i guess stop is the word but as listening into some recordings they did with cooter and it's just all about feel and you know like we eat. It keeps richard you his guitar playing kind of like technically sloppy but if he played it any better they would've like stones and it's just the way that charlie just.

Why Won't You Date Me?
"watts" Discussed on Why Won't You Date Me?
"You know. Hang out that that weekend. Maybe two weeks from now. Maybe you know like shoot whatever you need you know so i definitely there is a little bit of that but for me in my past but i think the hybrid approach is just feeling really comfortable with who you are and and approaching having a good time. I it's just purely like looking for the five of a good time with somebody 'cause because it'll grow out of that like whatever needs to happen will grow because it's just natural and you'll know you know instead of god. How do i make this person or whatever like how. How do we make it known. Were enjoying wanna lean on that really hard to wanna make it really obvious all of that stuff instead is just like hey listen hang out. All that was really fun. What are you doing on one moment. Leads to another. Oh shit this is what this. I liked that vibe. As we all know it hits in different ways. Yeah i think. I need to be more chill. I think that's one of the things that i need to bring to the table. Being a little bit more. Chill because what you're describing seems nice but in my brain. That's magic that doesn't i. Don't just hang out with the person and then suddenly you're like we like each other and then you're in a relationship with. That's literally every person i've ever spoken to. They're just like we liked hanging out. And then it evolved. No you meet and then you go out on four dates and then you decide right then and there. Are you in a relationship or not and it's like there's so many different types of romantic relationships. I like seemed to refuse to a accept. And i think that's just something i need to do. Yeah i mean. I think you're completely right. One hundred percent right on. I mean i think. I know a lot of people have weird ways about which they express themselves romantically and so forth and north centrally. And you know is a friend of mine. Who are like. They're married. But they coddle with other people or the people who are You know what would be described as solo poly like their primary relationship with themselves and then they have a few different lovers slash friends that they hang out with. Who all understand what's going on and that's through. Whatever there's like so many permutations of of love you know and that's the point that you raise and that's something that i have thought philosophically for longtime but now i'm practicing or at least trying to figure out what works for me but Yeah i mean it goes on all levels sometimes doesn't have to be that physical. Sometimes it's just like a really nice awesome romantic friendship and heels better as at a distance than if you cross the line because when you cross that line it's it changes as we all know into it can change a lot some people can withstand it. They can come in and then pull back out and they're like oh it was really fun and continue but you know but it is true. It's hits on all levels Happens immediately happens over me a few years. It's like i was at my eyes. You're in a relationship and we were just brands and that was totally whatever just being open relaxing a little bit like you're saying like relaxing a little bit and going it's going to be fine. I'm mike i love who i am and i love what i'm doing and i love this life that i man and sometimes i get a little lonely and sometimes i wish that i had like a partner or whatever but you know wishing is just projecting into nothingness and and why not just enjoy what's going on now because there's so much happening right now. Yeah yeah i agree with you. Sometimes i wish like i wish i add but if i just stop and think about it it's like my life is very cool. I have amazing people in my life. Who give me the love and affection that i do need on a surplus and deeper level and it's just like i need to start thinking that like a partner has just. It's like a declan taj. It's the star on the star on the tree. It's a it's an ornament on the tree. It's not the star of the show. It is something that adds to the tree. Because i'm a christmas tree. Yes you are christmas tree. Yes and i want presence put under my tree and those presents are are you. Are you know people person you are on this. I'm on appetizers. Yeah i have. I have i use hinch mostly. That's what i use i. I feel that. The people unhinged most like my speed. They're like oh to go out on a date. And i would like to meet you in person where i feel like tenders like we're gonna fuck and it might not be good and then kill you cinders. A little year you nailed that sentiment very yes and just a little bit more like high. I really enjoy a meal. Sometimes you like you're like oh that's cute. Oh and you and you do. Crochet beat up. Anna kill crocodiles. My mind okay. Sounds far yeah. It's a little bit more honor. You get a feel for the personality. I mean like. I don't go on dates all obviously this time period is really tough conversations and stuff like that but i you know it's okay. I've the last few people that i've met even during the pandemic been in like going into a grocery store meeting someone or i was in the swedish sock store and met somebody so this crash socks.

Maybe i'll get into sox phase where i didn't match my socks because i was like i don't know the douyin and then it got to the point where it was years and years and years and then i was like well. What happens if i match my science. Will the world end. I've done it for so long. I haven't matched and then i matched my socks. One day in the world didn't end. That's my own little quirks. No no no i mean. That's that's the crux of life. You just you just named a problem and the solution simultaneously. You now helped at least one hundred sixty two people. Well god blessed to those one hundred sixty two reggie closing onto the end works in. Close it onto the end. And i ask all of my guests be quest them this question again.
