Summerfest announces new three-weekend format for 2021
"New announcement. About what Summer fest 2021 is going to look like and we're joined right now. In the first Midwest Bank hotline by summer fest, CEO Don Smiley, Don. Good Afternoon. Good afternoon, Jeff. How are you? I am Well, thank you. Okay, Let's talk about the big news. What Summer fest. 2021 is going to look like and then we'll kind of explore why That decision was made, but so what? It's gonna look like Sure we're we're changing the festival format. The three weekends versus 11 days, so we'll start on June 24th and work 24 25 26. July, 123 and July 89 10. We will eliminate two Sundays, two Wednesdays and a Tuesday. That's five days. So what the essence of this is and and what we discovered through? Surveys and focus groups in in in in and data mining was that our customers want Mohr national bands. Earlier in the day. Can so We're going to take the expenses from those five days that I just gave to you and we're going to reallocate them to the weekends. Where will have local bands up early, but well, you you can picture a national band. Being on the Harley stage or the Miller stage at 5 P.m. and then another headliner at nine or 10 o'clock that evening, so it's an effort to go after more quality. Versus quantity and really fish. When the fish are biting, more people are more apt to be out on the weekends. Thursday, Friday Saturday with disposable income And And in using their energy entertainment dollars on those days versus the five days that I gave you, which, really when it came right down to it, they were really weak and that is W e a K. There were weak days for us, and we were spending a lot of money to produce those days and our money can be better spent in reallocating tow three weekends done. This is just in some ways respects. The logical progression in number means. Summer fest originally was always Thursday through Sunday, 11 days and a number of years ago. You made the decision. To to drop that first Monday because of a variety of things, including, I think week attendant, So this is really just kind of a logical progression of that I would imagine. It is. I mean, you know when you look at Theaters and restaurants and so on. I mean, you find a lot of businesses closed on Mondays. But when you're running a music festival The expenses are are are significant and Whatever you can. Maximize those dollars on different days. We concluded that that's the way to go. Even though it's too less days we're gonna have we're gonna have better bands and we're gonna have the bands that our customers our fans are looking for is still at a very affordable price. We're still gonna have free gated missions. We're still gonna have promotion days. We're still gonna have Children's fast day. It's such a It's such so none of that's going to change. We're just going to camp up. No pun intended thie the quality of the of the bands that we signed and on top of that on the fringes. If you will, pre summer fest in post summer fast, we're going to do a lot of shows in the American family insurance amphitheater in the beam, O'Hare's Pavilion will probably do more shows. And those two buildings that in the history of the festival So there's going to be a lot of activity in that building. It was too bad we couldn't use it the summer Ah, it turned out beautiful. And I'm referring to the reconstruction of the amphitheater. So and I know we're not alone there. I mean, you know everyone's hurting, and that includes sports and in restaurants and businesses alike. We understand that, but we had it. We have a scheduled board meeting this morning. We went through all of this. It was a unanimous decision. And so while we do understand that there are Maur. Important things going on in our world today and in people's lives have changed because of coded and also social unrest. This is just one of those things that we had to get out there and get on with it for the planning of 21, Don't just so I'm clear that this is not a one off plan for 2021. This is this is the plan for Summer fest moving forward is that correct? We'll see. I mean, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that You know that This is a perfect plan. And if if it works if all of the data That we considered in making this decision plays out. Well, then it will be a nine day festival going forward. I mean, you know who's to say that there isn't a show on Wednesday night prior to the opening Thursday, and who's to say this might turn into a 10 Day festival? I mean, you know, everything changed with Kobe. Everyone's life has changed their personal life, their social life. All businesses have been affected. And and and we're not on an island here, so we really believe that we have to be flexible. We have to be creative. We have to be able to pivot when when it's necessary, and that's exactly what we're doing. We lost $10.4 million in 2020. That's Before depreciation by not operating summer fest or any other shows down here or the ethnic festivals, So that's quite a mountain to climb. To try to make that money back and start replenishing our reserves again after we put $10 million of our own money into the amphitheatre, which was a $51 million project, so You know, I have, really, I really couldn't tell you what the future holds. I can tell you exactly what 21 is planned for, And if for some reason we run into a fork in the road In 21. Well, then we'll make a decision. At that time when you mentioned the ethnic festivals. Does this new schedule for summer fest proper, have any Will it have any impact on any of the ethnic festivals and they're scheduling No. The ethnic festivals would have the same dates as they would have had in 20 Got it. One of the other things in your announcement today for the nine days of summer fest. It looks like eight of the days are already booked for the amphitheater, and it looks like you've got just a a killer lineup coming there. I can give them to you if you're interested. Sure. Okay. On June 24 we have Khalid 25 is Luke Bryan 26 is Justin Bieber. July 1st Dave Matthews. The second is blank. 1 82. The third is Halsey. The eighth is Stapleton and the 10th his guns and roses. So we have one day to fill July 9th. Actually, it's filled but we can announce it. Yes, and we have some other shows sprinkled in around those dates. Already. So I think that's one of the things that people need to recognize as well and in part because of the partnership you have with with live nation now, the summer fest grounds. There's even outside the parameters of the run of summer fest that the summer fest grounds we're going to be utilized, probably more than ever in 2021 with big shows, right? Yes, sir. That was a great deal We did with the Frank Brothers, which is the live nation partner here in Wisconsin and That will provide more more shows more opportunities it required. Um, the reconstruction of the amphitheater. If we didn't do that, we wouldn't be any more shows And you know, there are some shows that we won't get there. Some shows that just play that, you know, they just want to play indoors and will will not get a shot of those. And There's plenty of venues in town for for those bands to play indoors and then and then we're going to get a shot at at bands that want to play amphitheaters. So we feel like we're in good shape. They're in and we're set up for the future, and I'm sure there's going to be some traditionalists who look at this and say, I really I really missed that Tuesday's show or I can't believe they're doing away with opening day Wednesday, but This is kind of a new reality that you're dealing with in a festival. Look, Let's just, you know, get this out of the way. I mean, we know we're not going to get all the votes and we know that there will be you know, there will be some that don't agree, but you know, we're going off a day out of I, You know, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. I love that. I think that's passion. That's like arguing who should hit second or third and play right field or second base. I mean, if they're not talking about you, I mean, then you really have a problem. So You know, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. We're just going on the facts. We know what our attendance is going back. Years. Um For Thursday, Friday Saturday and we know what kind of revenue we do on those days and we know exactly what the expenses are so for us to set this up. And get it ready for future generations and replenish our reserve funds. This is the move that we need to make. Got it done. Smiley Summer fest CEO. Thanks so much for spending some time with me this afternoon. I always appreciate it.

So I'm guessing that's that's how I did and I do miss that but I think I do miss them but everybody does and I have a damn good job so absolutely as far as jobs go this is a good one and I should try and keep it for as long as I can. Can you tell me how you're singing style and your footwork style came about? I don't know about the footwork. That's more like an infliction. I don't know what happened there because I steve videos myself embarrassed because looks like I'm doing at Charleston so I'll probably my mom or my grandmother. She tried to the Charleston between my gene pool. And it doesn't always happen. Tv consistent than to be cool but instead they stays diller they just pop up and down like anybody feeding all of a sudden there's just complete span that takes place my knees bending in strange directions and I'm like what's happening to me.

So maybe but she's free to squeeze and Nibble Manos. She likes so much for boxing but but The her singing style. Think I don't know where it comes from but I knew I know I love melodies. I know that I like the feeling of resonance of a voice in my head. Really cool thing to imitate sound to imitate to try and use when someone goes what to use that sound or or somebody's angry to grind even to try and found like somebody who's angry but not only sound like somebody who's angry but also sound somebody who's hysterical when they're angry not only do we mean but also be yodeling. 'cause you're so obsessed by you know when people get mad and they start sharing and and those kind of things also and like laughter and the musical sound of laughter than trying to bring in trying to turn that into melody and in the sound of of girls laughing in the toilets or the inspiration of the windscreen wipers. It's just all it's all things I think the or I don't know what the Hell I'm talking to death but I don't know what I think is where the hell my say stock goes for me is that is it. Seems to ribbon of it. It seems like we're not maybe not derivative but it seems like the obvious melodies. They come out and certainly did seem like the for the obvious things to do you harm phnomenom on is. I'm writing a song and then then I find when I'm like. Oh that's good. That's good and I sing along with it for a while and changes and then I listened back through the tape in the home that one over. Dan could go back there and resurrect so so. I don't know where it comes from. I I listen to you. Know a lot of the Beatles and listen to a lot about money and a lot of mom and game when I was growing up and actually cheap houses and do a lot of classical music.

Home very it's almost noxious but most beautiful way. How about Adrian Belew? Yeah love agent okay. Because that's probably the closest comparison. I ever said that I love that. You said that because he because you use your voice as an instrument and he does too. He's really good at that. Love that sort of putting the the character behind the voice of these things right behind the words you things low rhinoceros that whole album. The funny stuff hysterical. Because it's right there really will do little around Bangka. The great I hear you know because I hear the occasional thing of Musica reminds me of King Crimson and so I am but but I guess it's the Blue Influence I love. Love Love King Crozet. You've probably just had the most amazing last couple of years. I mean it's probably like head-spinning couple of years and I always think that the people who who have an incredible life changing type things happen to them that there but overbroad period of time.

DJ Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy on David Mancuso
"We're joined today by a very special guest asked Colleen Murphy known to nightclubs the world as DJ. COSMO welcome colleen. We'll be talking later about Lydia lunch launch and featured writer Darrell easily. But let's start with the main reason we've asked you'd to enter the world's back pages cover they tell. Tell us a little bit of wells February. This year is the fiftieth. I Love David. Mine cruisers loft passes you playing in New York at the fiftieth anniversary of the music. Yes yeah would it be fed cycling. The you are sort of Dave Matthews representative on. I think that's a few days few people I think one thing. That's very important to say about the Loft and David is is that he didn't think the party was even just about him And it's really about a sense of community. I am one of the caretakers Roy. And that's how he would speak. Speak to me about it and then meet considered himself a caretaker of the loft. I mean it was very much she said like the loft is a given name. I should back up because he I started doing parties in his own. Home at six forty seven Broadway picture phone. Google Street still fibrous building. Think he started throwing informal party in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight years that I was born and he didn't really make them into proper weekly party. He is with a contribution until February fourteenth nineteen seventy and he called it. A love saves the day but then the law was given name because it was a law. People are you're going. Hey going over there to that. Law became the name of the Party. Yeah well let's go. I will go by. When did you first when you start really getting the music? When did you start? DJ -ING Myself. One thousand nine hundred eighty two when I was fourteen. Wow I had A. I was quite lucky. I had a radio station in my high school. Alive is ten watts got basically to the edges of my town. My small suburban New England towns where I was the only one that played music. That wasn't top forty already and that wasn't classic rock. Although we did have one Christian music special not my show and I had a radio show for four years so the first year I was actually playing fifties and sixties speak. Because I was really into that. I was reading my uncle's record collection at the time and I had grown up. My parents didn't listen to a lot of music music at home but when we listen to music in the car and a Sunday drive we listen to people like Wolfman Jack still had a syndicated radio show and another one was already woo Ginsburg art show and she was all like the all those oldies and I just knew them inside and out and then my uncle lived if down the street from me and I used to raid his record collection. Because I I was given A. Ge Trim Line Record Player portable record player. Hand me down when I was about twelve. And that's when I really started getting properly into albums. The first one was Moody Blues Days of Future Past. That was my first obsession. Actually there's a proper album album. That's twelve the following year but my first year in high school freshman year. I had that old show the next year I started to more expensive. Expansive kind of new wave shows GALVEZ Castillo. Lot of Elena lavish fifty. Two's a little bit hard core stuff do that. It was kind of coming out really into black flag and the evanger all sorts of like the T. scene and then the following year. I had a show my friend. Mary crusoe called PUNK FUNK and junk. And that's where the name Cosmo was born because she became remix remix and I came cozma because there was a bound electro bound call nucleus and they had their. Dj was 'cause Moan. It's yell. Cosmo Gimme a beat. We we had sweatshirts that we may with our names on the back. We rock around arguing. Glenn High School you know no one else really was into that music and and then my final year. I had a show called strawberry alarm clock because I was still into sixty stuff. There was the whole kind of Paisley popping that was going on and I was working at a record shop. It was this chain store at that time called strawberries and because I had a show in the morning I worked at strawberries. Strawberry alarm clock and that was very eclectic. Six show pickup from a strawberry alarm clock to Chardonnay to black flag. To I mean it was just whatever my found was so yeah. I think I'll all ten listeners. Left at ease from the to some discussions Our B let's pick trajectory. I mean having said got my first GIG that I went to was the funk. FESTS and Providence Rhode Island's gap one way grandmaster Melle and bark as it was also going to few kind of Electrobi- clubs and Roxbury like my mom knows this mom. If you're listening to before center later I was into of course prince you know and slept out for tickets for the purple rain tour later. The cleaners tonight on Worcester Massachusetts so but luckily in Boston. Because I was outside Boston. We have great radio because we had college. Radio stations actually also brown station to Providence. Had a really good funk show and we had kissed one away with Sunny Joe White and so it was a commercial kind of I hate saying the word black music because I just don't think music has a color but I was going to do it for simplicity's sake right now and I used to listen to his show to. This is quite eclectic. I wouldn't say that wasn't the music. I was collecting and really it was quite a trajectory because I moved to New York Nine hundred eighty six eighty six okay and I went to Nyu and the reason I picked NYU's. I had to get out of Boston. It had the best college radio stations in the country. And I knew that's what I wanted and I knew that's where I wanted to be an somehow. We scrambled together loans and scholarships and got there. Because I was the first kid in my family to go to university. It wasn't expected to make sure and I went in the first week to. WNYC stations that high want to work work here and that they became my it was my family was my home intact and I ended up becoming program director and into the whole bunch of radio shows including the anchor show which was the new the afternoon. Show which is a three and a half hour drive time show where we played everything from like Nick Cave to the Belgian stuff. That was coming out of the cold ways stuff to you know to the four. AD cocteau twins Dunkin downs to everything so that was great. And then after that I produced syndicated radio shows I interviewed a lot of these bounds. Probably hundreds of pounds really that was syndicated to I think. Two hundred radio stations across country college radio stations. It was called Music View. And I even like you know a huge butthole surfers found at that time tall leary fifteen times and I. I mean Nick Cave loads of people I kind of and then all the Brit- British stuff too. Because I had always been an anglophile because growing up I was really into new order. J in addition in the Smith and seeing all these bounds of the cure fats down on stage. You want to dismiss legendary Gigs Boston so I was really and an anglophile as well. I was interviewing lows of bands like the verve and away Sis Anita all these bounds as well but I started going to save his. Party's we'll probably find Jim Sullivan's review of that show where she danced on the stage. And then I looked it up before because it was less. It's amazing one thing that's amazing. What the Internet is you can find? Old Settlers started listening to my first grateful dead show over and over last week. Some army onto a slight like March twenty second nine hundred eighty seven. The opening of the Spring Tour in Virginia Beach started listening to that. And you can find all track lists and I can find a photo the butthole surfers show the channel that I went. I mean it's amazing what you can find so. I did research and the smiths that that Smith's game was quite a big

"Matthews and will always go spend like seventy six dollars to get a fucking lawn to go see this nonsense their friend Dave. I wanted to read a couple of the like critical of quotes that I that I found found about Dave Matthews band as a whole Ellie weekly named Dave Matthews Band. The worst fan of all time recently. their quote. WAS YOU WANNA real American Horror Story Jason in the back of an SUV with off-key sorority house members. Singing along to Dave Matthews band. Dave is a jam packed with no jams. They make Perrier seem vibrant and ethnic back Dave Matthews kermit with a hangover for presumed intended audience of Trust Afar INS Frat bros. bonding via hacky sack and horseshoes was them and folks whose favorite book is the Davinci Code and favorite. TV show is two and a half men. They are permanently bathed the sonic instantan- of Abercrombie Colombian cargo shorts South Carolina gamecocks hats and flip flops. Flailing Jeff Weiss. I thought that was pretty good From La Weekly. The little liberal the don't you think that's that's who we are coastal salt of the earth. Oh Yeah Oh coastal like skin and then there's a good vice. There's like a vice series called. Do they actually suck. and they say Dave Dave Matthews Band fans are like fish fans for people in college which is to say. They are in an insufferable Colt of hippies united by their common misguided belief that they have good taste in music those people we'll get into the NBA and college. And then make shitty lifestyle choice forever. Dave heads with their pop collars and hats with pre warned. Bills will go as far as the list. Dave as a musical John Laura as in. Oh I listen grunge some hip hop Dave of course anyway. There's a sale on cartoon shorts. Got Around is this a fair characterization nation or yes. I think it's a little pretentious. You know I think it's a little bit but also really mostly correct. Yeah it's fine. I don't oh I don't feel comfortable framing it that way because like I know chill you know good people who like Dave Matthews Band. Is it pretentious. Because they're right. I I think the picture of a good chunk of the fan base but I don't think that's like the soul it is. That's the whole point about fucking Dave Matthews Ban. And that's like the one thing that you could say like maybe isn't fair to critique their music about but absolutely one hundred percent like a huge reason why people don't like Dave Matthews Bander why critics make fun of Matthews Band is their fan. Base is the fact that it is by and large upper middle class suburban White Douche bags. Who who don't understand what it's like to actually struggle and don't have any real stakes in their lives? And so they fucking complain about like nonsense and add syllables. Where there shouldn't be syllables and just moan off into the distance internally like there's I don't know that's the biggest critique that's effective about I Dave Matthews Band is that they're fucking fan. Base sucks look in the nineties and early two thousand yes. They were abandoned. It was you know the the white hat frat boys choice but that wasn't their whole family. Yes it was no. It wasn't well first of all. I want to say that what you're talking about the fan you describe as the as the quintessential will person just chugging Dave Matthews band music into their vacant mind is the lyrics. The Dave Matthews presents to those people are the perfect mirror of that so yeah it does make sense that that would be the fan because that is a fan. The lyrics are just profoundly vacant and say absolutely nothing or worse than nothing right and so it makes sense the people who would have nothing to say or think would be attracted to. Yeah sorry I agree but also just thinking painting into broad. Strokes isn't have you workman here for. I've talked to like for example. Dave clots who we were hanging out with earlier today Friend of the pod of previous guests had been to several Dave Matthews Concerts same with Colin. who was originally going to be on this episode allman Brothers Band but the stories I've heard about outdate shows that also that drunken idiot -solutely fucking drunken and it was like an excuse for that kind of nonsense all right right and fucking self-indulgent emptiness and and old navy personalities? You know what I mean like. That's that's not. I do have to say this though. We'll defend Mike's position also also though and say the lake I mean my mom had two CDs rate and also my my dear friend and boss Maggie. WHO's like an older woman? loveday Matthews Band too so there is another segment of people who are just like maybe weren't thinking about it very much like Oh this is nice on the radio. Yeah and I. I don't like you know it's just fine. It's fine which is a totally like benign in an perfectly fine like being in the Dave space. He couldn't he couldn't build gave you get there by accident. Seven number one seven consecutive number one albums all the off of the FRAT boy contingent. No one else is pull that off. Because I know that my Berkeley Pals in highschool would would go on and on about like the music be like. Oh can we just harder so sick at the bay's dude. Quick check in so they were white upper middle close pretty normally. Yeah Okay Yeah that's right. That's what I'm saying like. Yes like for people like Dave Matthews Band. That's that's for sure it's ads. They I love the Red Sox. They love the Patriots. They love Dave Matthews Band. That's their identity and there's a good amount of them for sure but I'm not and they might not all be bad people but it is absolutely the middle of the road and it's not like it's not like a cross section of society all right well anyway every day this album even they don't like yeah and the reason they don't like it is because basically prior to recording this album dave matthews band recorded a an entire separate album completely scrapped. They recorded this album with Steve Lillywhite. It's come to be known as the Steve Lillywhite sessions which doesn't make much sense because they recorded all their previous albums Steve Lillywhite to. Oh He's a he's a fantastic producer. He's worked with X T C he's worked with Susan the band. She's we've talked about it before and Dave wherever's and scrapped this entire album. The label decided to scrap the album. Basically they said that it wasn't marketable and Dave linked up with this guy. Glenn Ballard and Glen Ballard. There's a pop music producer and songwriter. Who had written co written all of jagged little pill which he worked on return of Saturn with no doubt? Basically if you're a rock band looking across over into the into the pop world. He's the guy to work with. Dave Matthews hung out with this guy and in ten days in ten ten days. They wrote this entire album. Sounds like it. Yeah sure does ten days for this album is longer than you needed. And so you'll hear on this album like the lyrics a half an hour. I can tell you the horn section and the violinist and all the other members of the bammer sort of pushed pushed to the sidelines. And this and you can hear the music fans also really disliked. How Little Cousteau Guitar? Dave Matthews played on this album. That was mostly electric guitar. I gotta say I I listened to the first few songs off of busted stuff which was sort of a re recording of this song. Steve Lillywhite sessions and I did not to my ears hear hear much of a difference at all between the music on this album and the music on that album but to discerning dave heads. Apparently it is a huge name pass. and and this is discerning Dave heads that is the most fucking oxymoronic saving. I could ever fucking here but yeah go their opinion this this album. Every song is less than five minutes. There's no jams gone a lot of solos taken. There's no real jazz elements it's basically weekly just like a straightforward pop rock album. And it's I guess Dave's take on straightforward pop rock and to me. It sucks walks but I also expected a lot worse as someone who hasn't really sat down and listened to a Dave Matthews band album since I was a child Um Look I didn't enjoy this but I don't know like a the idea of David Matthews Band so offensive to me but to actually sit down in like experience it. I don't know it's it wasn't what I expected. I'll say that Dave Matthews Band is the Pete Buddha Jag of music. I'm just GonNa say it right now. fucking middle of the road fucking white people are gonNA think that's radical and everybody else is like what the fuck are you thinking. And that's what this fucking shit it is radical is the definitely the least likely album for sure yeah. I think that's pretty much all we have to say about Dave Matthews. Let's get into the fucking music. He starts it off with. This was the lead single I think off of the album distinctly unfortunately uh-huh and this one is called. I'll.
"dave matthews" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"Of choice so so all my friends trying to emulate the rover brothers. We all gun Dave Matthews Band in like you know third fourth fifth grade. I had crashed into middle school. I just not into the Dave anymore and Martin up by middle up more into corn. You know how it goes. Do you hear my Dave history. Yeah okay so when I was a young man before being man when I was a boy my mom has. I'd say like twenty CDs and two of them were Dave Matthews band CDs so we had under the table able in dreaming. Because that's the that's the one where the cover is like swing. The other one was crash was the other one that my mom wasn't in both of those albums many many many times and like just I really never really thought about them. I guess I thought they were like I thought all like all music was like that for a while because in my house we didn't listen to tons of lake variety. We had Jack Johnson Dave Z.. Z. Top we had George thorogood. Thank you and lake. That's it the earlier stuff. He has a lot of lyrics about crass consumerism and about You know the nine to five grind and and and almost you know vaguely anti-capitalist stuff on on an everyday vague. You don't get any of that into that. Yeah I don't know if that's enough of a history lesson about me. But like they were in the background of my life as a child right. Yeah and I think that makes sense I think they they aren't. They will say to be in the background actually another memory. That's just emerging for me is when I was in high school me and my cousin went to see the allman brothers band live live and I really liked that. Mo- Mike and I were talking about which is crazy. I didn't know twenty seven minutes on called opium and I was like in high school so cool. That was the thing like I remember going there and realizing when we were there that like there was a whole Dave concert experience because my cousin had had gotten the Central Park concert on DVD and read the man show and everyone was like. Are you gonna go see Dave like later this summer. So I I learned that like if you wanted to be Lame adult you could see Dave Matthews for fun. well the Dave Matthews Band following is like supremely devoted extremely focal. And they're really out there but entirely generic. I mean they're the kind of people that you would find. The built in like like picture are like featured in a photo frame at Walmart like those are the people that are going Dave Matthews band concerts like. That's the thing is that I feel like. Yeah the only people I ever knew that were like hardcore. Dave Matthews Band stands. Where like weird? You know middle school teacher. I knew people who were chill. Otherwise who were huge Dave heads like in college especially. I feel like they're like band that you're into if you're like that's like they're like a college band. Well they're kind of a jam band right. So kind. Live Jason Jason. But they don't know that's not true. Okay they're not just jam adjacent because all these stupid dumb songs that we're going to get into around. But no they. When they play live they play like twenty? Minute extended improvised versions of all of these stupid songs. I like that is their thing is that they never play the same song twice that they always switch it up. And that's like the one that you can say about. Dave Matthews Band is a ah jam and that their creative and that the honestly with the exception of Dave Matthews and his dumb fucking goose mouth. The the rest of the band is actually very talented. Talent in the band you have to admit it. There's no bonus is fucking great. Mangle Soga Lee Roy Moore actually who who died in two thousand eight tragically ATV accident but so nineteen eighteen ninety one. Dave Matthews Band is formed in Virginia. My big thesis. I was like yeah like. I feel like Dave Matthews Band is just like country music but for the suburbs. It's the worst. It's not even about farms and trucks literally just about like falling in love and falling out of love and like thinking that that's the most most important thing in the world if you're lucky if that's the deepest demand that is as far as it gets right exactly. That is the deep end of the Dave Matthews Pool The shallow end isn't about anything at all right. Exactly Digging bones GONNA see bones looking up see the sun sea line look around look around everybody come on so this is a Bandeau so I was like okay. It's like suburban Bro Country and the MIC was like well no. He's from like from South Africa and it was like. Oh No everything falls apart but it turns out yes he was great he. He was born in South Africa but he also grew up in Virginia and Chicago Chicago. And like all these other places from CHARLOTTESVILLE and they're all from. Yeah from Charlottesville Virginia and he basically was smart enough to be like okay. I'm going to need some very talented to musicians to make this shit acceptable. And then I'm sure it was appaling. Even to him to see the amount of like fucking like worship that he cultivated for some of that even happy to say he is obviously very smart because he named the band Dave Matthews and they want us an egalitarian. Calming think about this. You can't kick him out because he's locked in. Yeah the brand is really good. But he's the name of the band is day matthew so if he doesn't at least walk out on stage at some point yeah it is the whole fucking show this thing. That is wild about Dave Matthews Band is that they are every one of the most successful bands in America five far says the seven consecutive number. One album what else. I don't do that. That is shocking. They've sold more than one hundred million concert tickets and a combined. Total of ninety one million CDs and eady's ladies what. Yeah that's why that. How does that happen though guys like how does that happen I disagree? Uh Uh there's a song on this album called if I had it all and when I heard that song my first reaction was you do and you're telling telling me that it's even more so true than I thought it was. You don't need to postulate say you're just registering called. I have it all I got. I have it all and not only do I have it all. I'm I'm going to dump eight hundred pounds feces on new onto your officially be. Is this person a piece of shit. Oh yes asked by all accounts Dave Matthews not peace at literally did did dump pieces of Shit on talk he really did. There was passengers. There were one hundred or two hundred passengers aboard a sightseeing boat on the Chicago River. They were going on a tour of Chicago architecture. It was like a budget tourists and one of the bus drivers That had band member Boyd. Tinsley it was void. Tins leased also. What a fucking name names the names in this group? We have Boyd Tinsley and then we have backing vocalist. Carter Buford Tinsley while we're on. Is this person a piece of shit. Just mentioned Boyd. Tinsley accused of sexual harassment. That is the one in a few search Dave Matthews band scandal. The two things that come up are poop poop anti-us boy to sexual harassment. Well Boyd Tinsley turns out. He's he's a piece of shit but He and Boyd Tinsley. Luckily they donate fifty thousand dollars to the friends of the Chicago River after they poured eight hundred hundred pounds of liquid human waste onto an entirely sightseeing boat hoop gate. It was called. Say That is a terrible terrible sightseeing journey. You're watching the sites. I mean you should be so lucky dave was in town and you got blessed so what happened. Exactly they just Ask Bullshit what happened. They pulled the tour bus up to the canal. I have no idea like that part of it is like. Is that how it works the mechanics. Just yeah they were they were on a drawbridge and they were trying to dump the roofs of Liquids Shit into the river from off the side of the tour bus. I guess there's a mechanism for that. Now what happened was it fell onto a Taurus boat sightseeing. No need to know for sure that the dave that the void Tinsley tour bus dubbing this time having going to be a whole tour group on the rest of America saw those eight hundred piles of Shit and they just open their mouths wide pages. He just said more crash so let me. I mentioned officers. I saw when I went to UMASS. who was a culture shock to me because I was a punk and I never knew any hippies? There weren't any of my town but UMASS was full of hippies and I made friends with some of them and I I remember talking to Katy moffatt about this about Dave Matthews band because she was such a huge Dave head and she was just like. I just don't understand like what is there not to like about Dave Matthews. been and I'm just I was like well for me above all. I think there are talented band. I think their town musicians but of all for me besides the cannot stand the sound of his voice now the way that he pronounces his words and the manner in which he sings and the Timbre of his voice is like It word it becomes seven syllables long. Dave Matthews is fucking mouth is unbearable for me and her response to that was. I can't even begin. Begin to understand that so I mean yeah. I don't think there's anything wrong with that if that's how your brain is wired to find his vocals accent. Apparently that's the vast majority are wired from two thousand to two thousand ten. Dave Matthews van sold more tickets and earned more money than any other act in North America for that entire decade. Oh Yeah we're we're we're the outliers here but I will. We'll say we pick the right album because this every day is the is the most hated Dave Matthews band album by his fan base and the part part of the reason. We're not stepping on any toes here. They actually didn't like the fact that each song wasn't twenty minutes long for us. That's the only I think that is good about this. So Dave made a lot of money. a law. I so I WANNA say that I agree with you. Totally on a pure acetic level level immediately as soon as he starts talking. I'm like I hate it. It's on. His voice is really hard to listen to. Yeah yeah so the thing about Dave evacuate band is that like my experience with them like absolutely came from like edge Lord online music criticism. which clearly is my bread and butter Eh? But there is for as many people that absolutely adore Dave.

Dave Matthews, Anderson Paak and Maren Morris Form Lobby Group
"Horn the music industry changes almost by the minute thanks to the internet and all kinds of streaming services these days it's a lot more complicated to figure out who gets paid for what well listeners are really good at adapting to the latest music platform the laws that govern them aren't quite so fast to catch up now is the music industry superstars including Dave Matthews and Anderson park have formed the music artists coalition it's a new Washington DC outfit that will lobby for musicians rights I spoke with reporters Lucas Shaw who broke the story for Bloomberg and he explained how musicians often have to rely on the federal government unlike a lot of other creative industry you the federal government has a huge role in affecting how artists especially how the song writers get compensated from all sorts of different parties so you either have judges or laws or some other government bodies determining how songwriters get paid by radio station by bars by restaurants by streaming services you know Pandora Spotify apple you name it and even last year Congress passed a new act called modernization act but also affected a lot of the royalty collection all the artists of the relationship between the music industry in Washington is very tight and artists are looking to make sure that into their voices heard whatever new laws and bills are being proposed the music modernization act went through a lot of iterations and was not easy to get passed to recording artist feel that there were things that were either cut out of that act or could have been stronger are they hoping that there might be other kinds of legislation going forward you know when I spoke with earning a daughter who's a manager everybody from Travis Scott to the eagles to Dan company at least involved in in working with all of them he said that he felt the bill was net neutral but it wasn't a bad thing but if if that was the best effort to making your and better for artists it didn't change a whole lot but I do think that this is as much about what's coming next as what has already happened because the fact is is that every year or two it seems that there is some new issue involving artist in Washington and there's certain laws that are currently on the books that they would love to see change if there is any way you know for example from an old telecommunications act that created the idea of safe harbor which is what allows a lot of free music to collaborate on you too that they would love to get rid of and the other complicating factor is they're different licenses that apply based on how a song is used there is the mechanical license which the license to copy and distribute the composition and there's the sound recording which is the performance of that song is that part of the problem to that rights and royalties are pretty complicated once you start taking them apart yeah I sometimes get confused explaining music rights to myself or to editors and I have to say you know you have the recording which is the musical performer you have the publisher which is a song writer and then within both of those you have your point mechanical performers are just so many different right very hard to keep track of very hard to know what is what and the fact is is that most artists don't know these things they're not keeping on they're not keeping tabs and they are relying on intermediaries whether it agent or publisher is certainly able to keep track of it for them but the idea behind you the company or the new lobbying group is we need professionally minded folks who understand the intricacies of the music business and can advocate on artist behalf in BC and make sure that there's no kind of contrast think decide because the fact is is that labels and publishers often have a different golden artist they obviously all want the music to be listened to but if the label can keep a little more the money that the artist is gonna keep they're probably gonna do that we're talking with Lucas shot at Bloomberg about a new lobbying effort by musicians Dave Matthews I suspect is not really hurting when it comes to whatever he's pay how much of what artists like Dave Matthews are doing or for himself and maybe for other lesser known less powerful art as they try to work for all song writers and performers I think a little bit of both so I'm I've been told the Dave Matthews for example is very upset that there's so much bootleg merchandise available on Amazon fans will pay for any new T. shirt or concert DVD or anything like that and if somebody else uploading it to Amazon Dave Matthews at their thing will why should some other person get money that should really go to be enter my bandmate though you've got lots of money part of it is is fighting the good banking but I do think you're right that you know the the names that have signed up for this Dave Matthews Band don Henley man Morris Anderson pock either big stars and when they say they're getting behind an issue that forces other people to pay attention and come to the table and it makes it easier for them to look out for the little guy it also strikes me as a little bit odd that one of the people who is involved in this is Irving aids off and people have been around the music business know that Irving has been Hey he's been a manager he's been a promoter it does feel like he is almost on the other side of this equation where ARE Irving A.'s office priorities aligned with that of some of the artists I mean look Irving has had almost every job in the music business he ran after he ran a record label but I think the through line through his career has for the most part been standing up to the artist in particular in this leader phase of his career he has tried whether self interested or not to get a flight for artists right and art is getting more money in the face of you know large tech companies playing the consolidation of record labels you know earning a thought came of age in the music industry that looked a lot different than it did say a lot more diffuse you had more different labels you had more different salaries now they're just a handful of companies that can control things in tow Irving answered made it is critical or to be saved that giant for some of these artists and one of the overriding complications I assume is the rise of streaming services so let's just say I pay ten Bucks to go into a bar there streaming Spotify there's a song by the eagles is that part of the problem that the green not that kind of calculation in a digital era is incredibly complicated a lot of people feel like the streaming kana me has been built for example is to the detriment of the song writers that's just one of many ways that when you have a new type of economy that it has in the shift from CD's I tune about dreaming there's both opportunity and peril and who collects the

"dave matthews" Discussed on That Awful Sound
"Kills you wanna. Do you wanna come over to my dorm and smoke some weed, and and then he puts this song on, I would feel deeply wet. Right? My soul. If it was nineteen ninety six wearing stock. After a women's studies class in Washington d into an all-male jam band to reinforce. Make. 'cause like at the time. Right lake. We have a lot of perspective now like to today we'd go, oh, and all male jam Ben, whatever. But in nineteen ninety six bed. No, this was like, I swear to God. Dave Matthews was kind of like severe sieve in nineteen ninety. Six. It was like kindly were kind of an underground. They weren't super mainstream. This song brought them to the mainstream, but like they were like a college band fish was underground exact. No, I'm you're absolutely right. My fiance. Fucking loves fish. I can't believe that I got to the point where I agreed to marry him with him, liking fish as much as he does, but God bless, I do. And Dave Matthews band is also one of his favorite bands. From that time, they were a lot like fish in that regard. Like people didn't really know about them a whole lot in the mid nineties, but then they blew up after this song for sure. But I'm just saying, I think that's what makes it so funny is like yet today scattered, it's ridiculous, but like looking at it through the lens of back, then we talk about like a lot of nineties bans on this show, right? Yeah, yeah. No music is a spectrum. So like it's okay to listen to bikini, kill and get something out of that and get something out of this. I'm not. I'm not saying like, you're not allowed to listen to Dave Matthews. I just want to laugh at it. Sure, sure. No, it's like I agree with you. It's it's it's hilarious to get to like the worst lyrics here guys. You're like preemptively defending this stuff. Listen. Listen. Okay. Sweet. Like candy to my soul. Sweet you rock and sweet. You roll see at the time rock and roll was a big thing in the nineties. So this lyric wasn't corny at all. See for Carney. It's okay to be Corning. This was not real rock and roll. Do not appreciate them calling this rock and roll this clearly pop music. It's not real music. What what would you classify Dave Matthews band, mommy rock. This song is, I mean, I think they would just say, if you were to look at charts, it'd be in the rock music charts or whatever. But historically there probably classical slash adult contemporary something like that. And they're the people before them would be Paul Simon's Graceland and Grateful Dead and stuff like that. Definitely. Sweet like candy to my soul. Sweet you rock and sweet you roll. I'll said. Yes. So like it's a sex thing, very sexual, but it's I mean, like rock and roll literally again in rolling rock and roll like literally meant sex. Originally, it already meant sex because you rock a new role in top of each like, oh, for ROY. Yeah, you're getting the baby actually. Sounds like he's going down on women or she's like on top of him. She's good. You guys, it is listen..

"I love Dave Matthews van now. Right podcast over thank God. I gotta go. Okay. So here's okay. Here's my thing with Dave Matthews band. Yes, they are goofiest fuck a little bit embarrassing to admit to liking, but that being said, I have to agree with con. It's their production, the product, the production values on all their albums are usually really good. The worst apology for Dave. Actually, the was mixed really well. I don't listen. I just before these crowded streets is a brilliant album. But yeah, he's a goof. He's goofy shit. He looks like a weird sweaty. Adam Sandler with a Roman Caesar haircut, which does get confusing when he has a cameo in. I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry, their best friends. I think he had a cameo in the waterboy to news. Don't mess with vizo haunt. I think. Maybe buddies with Adam Sandler. Yeah, he is. They're, they're, they love each and Adam Sandler goes Scooby, doo up. Have you ever seen Dave Matthews and Adam Sandler in the same room together though. Chuck and Larry, they really, that's camera trick. They're both. They're both pretending to be gay, really funny that that movie was controversial. This is not. Okay. So I like the. You mentioned the production like how great the production is because it is good. The production is good in Abel's you to hear the like fifth, acoustic guitar right here. What do you mean. What do you mean? V v acoustic guitars, definitely like five, acoustic guitars there. So his other guitar player, Tim Reynolds is like this crazy as virtuoso Qatar player actually sounds like ten people are playing when he plays, and he uses this setup pedals and everything. He's actually like a crazy, amazing guitar player. Like I'm just talking about. It's like layered strumming. It's just like a bunch of strumming. So maybe he has like chorus, pedals wise, this a bad thing. I'm just saying that there's a dumb guitar right there. Why is it dumb? Because it's like, do. Okay. Thank about music at the time. What's. Me what it was getting in touch with its feminine side will ninety six first of all, the chances of a day Matthews band breaking out in ninety twenty. What are you? They sound exactly like blues travelers income until later dined. This is ninety six. This isn't there. I Alba just like their third or fourth album. So so they already were starting on the journey that this is the the nineties. The mid nineties is like the only time this could exist as a new band. I'm talking about them getting signed that is true in their element with with the mid nineties, and they probably helped usher it in. Okay. So I should curse them even louder. Well, I do think that they are definitely like they are a quintessential nineties ban after like nine hundred ninety. Nine happened and I think they came out with that album. I forget which one it was what it's called, but it was. It was like a green and black and white. They had the song called every day on it that called every day. Is it okay? I feel like that was the decline of Dave Matthews band, but within the parameters of the nineties, they were great. They the songwriting is actually. Barring this song which they tried to make a hit and make a simple song they, they do have complex arrangements in other things going on, which is interesting to somebody. That's when I was coming of age. I was looking for something that wasn't so angsty that that you know that I could kind of listen to with my dad or whatever. And we could have something in common because he he could be moved by this and I could be, you know, we can be on the same level and meet a musical way because it's complex. Some of it is so funny that you bring that up. Oh, dad's like this. Well, I got into Dave Matthews band. I was, I remember the day and went to count. I was. I was I was at the outlet store shops at Cavs on with my new stepfather. My mom just married this guy didn't know very well. And he was like, let me take you shopping at campus on like, okay, let's go. And we went to Cavs on and I bought a huge Tommy hilfiger. Yellow rain jacket because Missy Elliott's I can't stand the rain. He just come out. Stepdad was really trying to get you on. He was good one hundred dollars. It was..

Let's talk about this dumb s. gross s song triggering me. I know you're looking at me like, oh, like I haven't heard that before. Like I haven't heard Dave Matthews ado. She thing to like before, you mean you're, you're actually in the popular opinion here. No, I know I'm in the right. I'm like historically on this Turkey on the right side of history here, seven times platinum bitch. Seven times platinum, Alex. Yeah. No. I mean, you want four million albums total sold out of his coal Cadillac. So you're saving number one album, straight smile. So what you're saying is like you and the rest of the Dave Matthews band fans are just following orders like just, you know, going with with the flow of society, and there's nothing come to bite you in the butt later on for that. No one's gonna dumb shit on us. Literally Dave Matthews. I mean, that was one time I swear to God. Fucking bus literally like are dropping their fucking phones trying to Google article where Dave Matthews dumped boop who everywhere we know we get it. It was one time. It doesn't cancel out the fact that he's putting down some sweet Choubey do up day. Okay. He did dump like his bus is tour bus did dump literal human shit over a bridge onto a boat that was passing underneath, but that's better than a yellowy Brown liquid. Okay. I mean, I'm assuming that's what human shit is. Yeah, but I'm just saying it's better than having his music dumped on you. Can I? Can I speak about the shit? Yeah, I'm done talking. That was that was not responded. I'm not going to respond to that because these allegations are false. No, it was. It was the violin players tour bus. It was his and he got caught up in the metoo movement and he's out of the band now. So I'm about to eight mile you right now. I'm gonna tell you everything bad about Dave Matthews and you've got nothing. We only have like an hour and a half for this podcast. So no, there's no way you could possibly do. I'm just. I'm just going to say it's you're already starting off on the wrong foot, defending this ban by saying that they're violinist has a tour bus. That's what what band like that's that's like unstable for the for the economy for the for the American economy when you're violent is, has their tour important to the overall sound of the band's? Well, actually he kinda, it's important to the overall sound ban and that kind of music they make is intricate. So is there so is there saxophonist what isn't there. Maybe he does. Maybe they can't stand. Would you be in the same Torah bus day Matthews. So they weren't even all in the tour bus. It was literally only the violinist in the tour bus. What I read. It was his personal tour bus. Okay. I don't have anything to say to that. Okay. But who cares? The people who got shit dumped on them care Tinsley. Yes, that's him. Listen. Boyd gets void once he wants to wear a violent to two in crash into me, he gets it. He wants his own fucking tour bus. He gets it. He wants sex. He gets very nuts. Later on age didn't someone get kicked out recently? Oh, God, damn it. Like you said, he gets what he wants like making dark. By all accounts. He's scumbag and that's cool. But you're just talking about music. We can set rate ourselves from the scumbag from this week. Dave Matthews band is definitely there are is so great that you should be able to separate that I'm gonna tell you something really great about this album and the song it is very, very well produced. It sounds amazing. It does like there is how hard it is to. There's only so many sonic frequencies and to fill up all those little holes with your, what is that you're? You're Jingle Bells and you're. Lynne's and double good tars and to make it sound cohesive and bright and brilliant. It's actually kind of a feet.

"I actually wanna go to prom. That's a clip from lady bird. The film I sort of love the use of that. I con excelling in that moment because there is or there was guess in two thousand and two. The song came at ninety six. There was like a. I guess a way of establishing who you were based on, whether what kind of music you like there always is, and there was an awareness in that moment in like a wink and not from the filmmaker that this was a guy who was saying, I'm cool because I don't like this and she was saying, I'm cool because I do like this. Is that something that you're aware of when it comes to how people relate to your music? Especially some of the older stuff with Dave Matthews band. In, I may have cornered myself when I was young into this is what I listened to. But I think also lucky my parents listen to what we're open to a lot of different music. And as I as I get older, I, I realized that I just would like to. Prefer. Music. It's good rather than music of any John. And I and I and there was music that I dismissed when I was young because it didn't fit into the category of of what I thought was awesome. And I might have been embarrassed to admit that I liked it, and now it's some of my favorite music. And I'm not saying that people that that hated my band when they were teenagers or in their twenties should now like my band, but there's always more to things or there's often more to things then then you think it's easier to to display? I, I like I like this kinda music. I like country music, like hip hop music like jazz music, and nothing else is is for me. But your own Yoni limit yourself when you say that. I mean, obviously, you might listen to music and be and be horrified by the way at colonels your your internal milk, but that's okay too. I, I want to listen to as much music as possible and and find out what I like. And then when I find things, I don't like I can just ignore it. Well, we're gonna go out on the most explosive live performance. We can find from your show tonight which you haven't played yet.

"Let's come tomorrow. Title track off. Dave Matthews band's latest record. Come tomorrow, backing vocals there by brandy Carlisle, the tremendous brandy Carlisle. And I read that you ended up on stage at the March for our lives, rally in Seattle, because brandy Carlisle, saw you there and you're Martin with your daughter, like as a civilian. That's a beautiful story. Is that true? Is that how it happened? But accepted is Randy. I. So I took your daughter, my daughter and I went on. Daughter wasn't feeling so well. So my daughter grace is state home grace, and I went thousands of people there. It was. It was a, it was a beautiful March and is specifically cool that it was organized by kids. And so I snuck up. I snuck around brandy and and actually it was the twins that noticed me first and they. Can't play with her. And then I, they were both. There was a moment and they're like, and they recognized me. So actually, I, I've found brandy and then she said, you know, you should. 'cause I knew she was going to perform there and she's one of my heroes musically and just just awesome powerhouse. And and and so she said, you should play something and I was like, no, no, no, because I don't. You know, I don't want to jump on anyone else's situation, but then I thought about it a little bit as we walked to the final destination down down by of who Seattle center there and. Her words sort of in my head and I and so I went up and just played one song. I barred her guitar thing. I played mercy, it's that's simple. That's a simple song. It's not a simple, but what I mean, it's it's a simple message, right? Yeah, we should play a mercy, at least that people can can can feel at that moment wasn't picture. Okay. You know..

"That's cry freedom. Dave Matthews band, oldie and a goody. It's it's not that old old fail. Okay. So we're talking to John prime recently who is a American treasure songwriter and has this really distinct style of writing lyrics. And he says, he's incredible. And he said that when he was working on his latest record, he did a couple co writes, and then he had to think about how to John Prien episode because he had this awareness of what a John primed song is. And in this case, he he was joking and he said he added pork chops, but he was really talking about a bigger thing, which is having a sense of what a use on is. Do you have a thing like that where you're like, oh, this is a Dave Matthews song, or do you not? Do you not think about it like that. I do. I have moments where I look at a lyric and Warren idea, and I'll and. How say that doesn't make any sense, but it's exactly what I want to say. And can you give me an example? There's a song call come tomorrow and I love it. I wrote the song before the most recent school shooting and and but but it but it was strangely song was strangely applicable. So I was almost part of me when you're putting the record out thought maybe we shouldn't put on the record because it sounds like it's milking some horrific situation, but there's lyric in there that that says. Lovers. Love. I can't even remember it after here. Know how to lovers love and firefighters fight. What's something and dancers dance all night farmers farm and the dancers dance. All night lovers. Love in the firefighters spite and in a weird way, that's a nonsense line, but it might be my favorite on the record because is a different way of saying the world is what it is. I mean, maybe someone to say, you know, it's not as horrible as it should be, but the song is really about if we're capable of giving our children a better, a better world, then we have, you know, are we capable of that? And it says it in a more maybe hopeful way someone might here. But for me, it's incredibly hopeful, but mostly very cynical to that. That's how I read it. When I first heard the song and I the the thing that got me about it with. Come tomorrow, we get everything. So as long as we survive today, come tomorrow, we go and find a way. And I was thinking like yet it could be really hopeful because it's like, you know, if we survived, there will be tomorrow and the kids will take care of it or it could be really depressing because it's like we can't do anything and the kids will be left with with whatever this is. You know, I think which I think that it's sort of where I was coming from, but it was sweet little. It's a sweet sounding song. I was joking with friend of mine that my most cynical songs. Always come across as as as the really as as the sort of headline of them and and I remember a French most cynical songs come across as as we As as you you know, know. as as they appear of. But then I also don't know whether. Whether it's me that that you know, because maybe the part of me that writes down is not a cynic. Maybe I'm hopeful that I can leave my kids in a beautiful world and and and and so that's what comes out of me. And and maybe in my analytical brain, I'm like, there's no way we can wake up a green human race and and turn around the inevitable. We can't even face what what's happening now, how are we supposed to change direction? You know? So those two things that I have. I hope that my children have a wonderful on easy life, but then I say, but that's about as likely as the world spinning the other way. Well, let's come tomorrow k. Okay. I bang for real. Got mad, smoke KOMO this making a deal. Yeah, bridges. Tomorrow is another day. Sad. Dance dance all night. Mike. The show show. Good..

"That's a bit of trick and Billy's Dave Matthews band back in the day, a big part of that sound and you said bringing on Boyd as violinist at that time to huge part of the sound of Dave Matthews band and noticeably absent from from the new record from come tomorrow. Except on sort of one track where there's a little bit of of a shadow of it and stopped me. It's too much. We don't have to get into too much, but because he was such a huge part of the ban when when he announced that he was gonna take time to take care of himself into to be with his family, and and some news came out about him said that you're gonna miss him a lot being too. You're right on stage. And I guess I'm wondering what with that with that feels like now that you're on stage touring this record to to not have somebody who was part of your family, your musical family from twenty five years with you. Well, things, things change. You know, great for all my experiences and all the people that I've worked with. Grateful because it's made me who I am Boyd needed to go and. Focus on the things that I guess he's focusing on now. It was very hard for him and it's been quite a while to give the focus to this band that I wanted. And you know, well, I must say that in this band, I don't know what it's like another band, but I want all I ask from everybody there, and I think everybody there s from me is that I don't care if everyone has their own bands, their own projects. If they're, you know, selling popcorn on the side. But with this band, I want everything that you have. I want every bit of musicality you have if you are, you know the most magical improviser and you have a voice that has never been heard before I want that. And I want every part. Of it. I don't want it modified. I don't want you to play the notes. I wanted to play your notes and I want you to give it everything. And that's what I demand from everybody. And I think what everyone demands from me and Boyd has not been able to bring that for a long time because I think there was other things in his life. And for that reason he had to go and take care of himself. And right now, you know, it's always changes. Never, never. It's never easy even if it's for the better is not easy something that's especially if something that's part of you, but yes, but not because the band right now is like ten times. What I've ever I've felt for years. I feel gates open because we have a guy this incredible keyboardist and vocalist named buddy strong few years back. He's worked with Rashawn trumpet player. It is so invigorating and up lifting at the moment to play with buddy and the band. We all feel it because he, he, he's like, he, it's like, he's just figuring us out, but he's like, I've got, I have. This is my hundred percent, but he's like, I'm gonna give a hundred, but wait, I got more hundred percent to give. You know, it's like this amazing to be on stage right now. It's I feel I don't even know. I don't have no idea what to expect it so exciting. I don't. I can't imagine what this band is. Gonna sound like in September. I can't even. I don't even know. Like if I deserve at age fifty one to have this much joy onstage it's been decades since this band has had its so much joy. It sounds like time travel back to the way it might have felt in the beginning except were old and and so fun is is, is being transported by joy and and creativity is harder to come by you get as I get hold. Dave Matthews is my guest here on the road cafe, Dave Matthews band, their latest record is called come tomorrow. So the record opens with this wonderfully joyful song called samurai cop, joy. Begin, and I think it's about fatherhood or child childbirth. At least at the start those I loved. I do love the the opening because I love the opening because it's like, sounds like terrible beginning. Can you save Lear IX the first the day?.

Every morning does make a big deal about where he lives. It's not super secret. Dave Matthews lives in Seattle. And you drives a Prius. I try not to stick out to try to make my strange stay on the inside as much as possible. I do think it's better for my kids. I do feel like if I walked through an airport by myself. That a much better chance that no one is GonNa notice me then if I walk through the airport with Posse if I really don't want anyone to see me will then I just won't go outside and I and I do think I don't want people knocking on my door and saying I made you this jam or won't you come to my wedding. I don't want strangers coming in the house but I feel like if you're sort of accessible it makes the curiosity to what they're less less interesting treat yourself like a normal person. People will show you a normal person. We mentioned that you took a a summer vacation last summer. Did turning fifty have anything to do with not going out for summer tour for the first time in a long while still work. I did go on tour with Tim. Reynolds light. It's easy enough just to Qatar. Som turning fifty also. My view of things changed a little bit than to because how well I was not totally unexpected. But it was my fiftieth birthday. Did Fall right around the same time as the seven deadly sins or the Carlson's took over the highest office in the nation. Your birthday in January. And you're saying it was around the time of the trump inauguration. Exactly you turn fifty. You have this moment. Of what thinking do I keep doing this? Do I change what I'm doing like? What are you going on? I think there was a lot of different thoughts I think for me. I've never been on grateful for what I've managed with the band. And what all the guys in the band of taught me but I do think when I turned fifty. I was like I really have to have a selfish year. You know it's all relative not regardless of everybody else but just because of me and so I told my kids. What do you want to do with what kind of party my wife had? What kind of party for? I don't WanNA party had to give me a surprise party but I do want to go have a trip and I haven't figured out yet but I wanNA take you all on a trip and I wanna go somewhere. Where and then I wanNA take all our cell phones away and take all hide everything and I do something. Where'd you go? We ended up going to Kenya to re Teddy this incredible elephant sanctuary and some other places and had I think all my vanity would agrees. I'm not saying that everybody can hop in a plane and go to the middle of Kenya where there's nothing but it was everything that it could be an although I felt selfish In some ways if I looked at it it was just a UN believable time for me. And my family to indulge each other and to enjoy each other's company and to and it was really nice. It was also beautiful because he wasn't a battle even in the remotest way these have ipad. Oh can I just check my man? It was like there was none of it. It was crazy but it was because we were around all think. It's easier to be without your IPAD when there are elephants make it easier to forego. Social media is wild. That alone is a good argument for an hour ban of ivory in this country. Sure Atl conservation will help you stay. In the room sure stay will run authorises although they are not as smart as elephants did not know. Going elephant is hauntingly smart. Hannah if I was gonna tell anyone to read a very simple very quick read about elephants does Oh beautiful book that anyone would enjoy by Lawrence. Anthony called the elephant whisper in. It's just his experience with a herd of wild. Elephants is mound boggling. The respect you will gain from a very unassuming book but it will make you wonder at the universe to turn fifty. You took your family to Kenya. But did you have that moment? I always think that Neil young song. I'm the ocean. Yeah people my age. Don't do the things I do. It's funny because I do sometimes hear my own voice saying there's no way. I'm going to be doing this when I'm forty. I mean I could hear my no my own voice and it was going well. I there's no way I'm GonNa do this on on forty now. I feel like I was wrong. There aren't a lot of people who get to keep doing this. It is a crazy thing. And unless you're working as a musician and you had to work on to be lucky enough to get where we are and keeping to do it at that very lucky. I don't take for granted for the most part everyone's while I take it for granted I do feel like I don't care as much about what people think as they did. Twenty years ago I. I think I deeply cared. Now I'm Kinda like if you don't think that what I did was good. I don't care I'm not saying you're wrong although I think you're wrong I I'm just saying that I don't care because it's good. It's funny to it's a different thing. When like the people who grew up on your music start telling their stories. They start writing their rock history. Because they don't do it. It's the same thing I was thinking about this. The other day is black. Sabbath we think of black Sabbath this fucking Sabbath but in the seventies if you're reading rock criticism it's like they're no good and they're not really. Satan s that's not real and it's not good. It's not good music. That's that fundamental to us. Yeah I just I just know that it's at the core of me. Know I do remember being almost frozen with joy fear when I was in a gym here in the city and Ozzy was on a treadmill near me walking up and he's walking not running. He was running but he was the whole shaking. A whole he runs like Frankenstein which is not surprising but he was like I mean his feeder hitting the grammy that I was like how it was. Bones hold up. He was running and it was not long. It was a decade ago. I was impressed that he was running. But also just like you know and eventually got the courage to go you know Biden bug him too much and he's of course as we all know now having watched charming he wasn't his. You know the first and only show. That was actually worth something. But in my strange opinion the only reality show the only family reality. Show watch great. Why do it again? That was perfect. Just watch reruns. It was perfect and he could see was a loving amazing person but what great music to hate. You know you might hate to admit it. But it's great right in my bones. We're now at stage where the stones are on tour and they're in their seventies. You can probably do that to let that happen when it does well. The way I feel right now is that I cannot believe how new new this how good I feel about this record. I think that if someone listens to this album and says I don't get it. They should either listen again or I don't know. Go eat a cupcake. This is their loss to me. It's such a good record of feels good about it and you back out on tour. This summer I cannot remember feeling this elated about playing music with and feeling so lifted by the experience as I do with you know the same people and some New People that I've ever felt in my life and it's just what the hell did I do right but I just feel like when I look at Carter and I know that we were in his basement practicing Stefan fifteen year old kid when I first approached him when I look at them now and I see those same people. You don't really see how much eight you know that makes me think we did something right. Even though we've lost some friends along the way we did something. We've found something in each other. That is remarkable and I don't take it for granted. Devlin leave it there. Thank you so much right on. It was really nice. Talking yet is fantastic into inside. The studio is an iheartradio original.

"dave matthews" Discussed on Inside the Studio
"I sort of said well. That's not finished. I don't have a place for that yet. Because we didn't finish that product. Then we did grew brooks and we finish that record and I love that record and then I did some more recording you know so we did grew with Ravelo and then I did more according with Alasia who I always right John alasia. Who's one of the producer? Always ride with him the record that we had sort of show before that we are doing with Batson and then I made another album. I went back. We did an album with lily white. That I'm happy with some songs I don't think in the end I don't think it was. The best of the album could have been but I still. There are some good things in there and then I went in the studio again with Rob Cavallo and we had the beginnings of works for Awhile on an album and we had more than the beginnings of a great record there but again for whatever reason I think disappointed solve my own head getting. You know a lot of things on my mind about the ban. My I desperately wanted to make a not feel disappointed in some ways like a little bit the way the world although again. I don't want to throw a baby with albums. None of them are. We're not gonna but but you have said that away from the world you feel. You went back to almost over work. Yeah I feel like that and feel it. Lost some of the teeth then. I went back in the studio and I was working with John. Malaysia and Rob Evans to the producers. We started listening to some of the songs as really just saying that is as good as anything I've ever done. That's just how I started thinking of everything at the same time. I'm also writing more music. And they were all also telling me was like this stuff that we were doing right now was as good as anything that we have in the back. So we've got this super creative process going. It was like a a monument. That's not the right word. It was almost like a something to hang. The whole process on was really when I went back and listened to the track can't stop. Which has lou Roy Moore on it and it was sort of a live performance and bats and was in the room and who is one of the two tracks that go all the way back two thousand and six? Yeah alasia and Rob Evans went in and took the track which was recorded with bats and they mixed it and they said this is what we came up with. An ice sat and I was like. Oh this is a monster and they had rob Evans likes to get to Carter's drums as a beast. So then everything the way that I was thinking about it was everything has to be as strong as that. You haven't made an album in six years but it's almost like this is a greatest hits of the last twelve years or something. It feels like that in a weird way feels like this is the best I've done and Greeks was the most focused album because in the middle of we lost Roy so it had this real purpose. That was behind to which was to pay homage Omar depending on how you want to be to Leroy and so even from the cover everything about it was Roy and I think that's what Sorta gave me and Carter and everybody the motivation to get that record right and rob Cavalli met and Doug who met Roy and we'd all lost him so that sort of focus was like we had a finish. This great for Roy. In this instance I do feel like I. Someone said you need to step back. You need to look at what you've made and not discount the heart that you put into some things and so I started digging through and there's a lot of music I couldn't get on the album. I want this is. This is a very focused record in a different kind of way for you in that. I don't think there's been a record that is quite this inward looking from you. Before Lotta songs about love love songs. They seem to be about marriage either about lasting relationships. I'm often used to your songs addressing the outside world a little bit more whereas this felt like very personal my family kind of record. I think maybe there's sort of allowing myself. A little bit of that was feeling comfortable to talk about it. Maybe that says something about where I am with my family and also where I am the band maybe as turning fifty make whatever or past that whatever it is I do feel like a lot of this is looking inward and even that song. Blackened Bluebird Bird is a little bit of a part of conversations that are had with my son and my daughter's it's sort of is like the words the things I've learned to think about in some ways are wanted them to think about when we're having conversations either about the world about selfishness or about what's happening or the wonder you know always trying to remember that the universe is much bigger than we are and just that kind of idea from my kids is I want them to feel stunningly small and and therefore inspired as opposed to. I can't stand my old phone. I need a new on is the worst. That's fine to have some emotional that but I'm grateful that my kids aren't overly obsessed by that kind of stuff. I think that Song Wordy way of saying that we are so tiny in the universe that if all of us in everything on the planet vanished tomorrow. Nothing not even the moon would notice our absence. That's really interesting because particularly at this moment in time and this is a difficult period in American history. Put it mildly. Yeah and the world I mean you watch everywhere these waves of self absorbed self righteousness and sort of ignorant arrogance scary combinations of personalities and also to connect what's happening in America to world politics waves of nationalism. We would. You're a very different kind of thing here. In this country I think nationalism yet that very often allows the most disturbing things to happen in cultures when a culture stars to think that it has somehow reached further or is the example of excellence or should be acknowledged as the most excellent. When that happens very dangerous dangerous things happen I think. Nationalism is what allows apartheid. Nationalism is. What allows Hitler not. It's all fine to be you know. Un-american I'M PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN. That's fine but you have to be able to say that feeling that belief is no more reasonable or more true than if a Canadian says I'm Canadian and I'm proud to be Canadian and I'm great. It's no more true. I also grew up being taught that saying. I'm proud to be an American meant that you were setting an example that you wanted to share with the world and not. I'm proud to be an American. Stay out keep to yourself. That will be on our side of the world. You'd be on your side. Yeah it is a scary time and I do think that the sort of sense of entitlement or the idea of being your born in America for whatever reason that for no reason other that you are worth more than someone who was born in Panama. That to me is an obscene concept that the value of a human being could in any way come from where they're born or who helped them and you did mention apartheid earlier when we were talking and of course that is the idea something you grew up with and assist them. That said you can be born here in South Africa and still be worth less. Oh Yeah that people here and that my concern in this country is that nationalism that we have to keep out all these people because this is hours. 'cause we were born here or we arrived here. That is truly strange coming from a country. That's so young and is so recently created by immigrants. This country is half the soldiers that fought on the side of the Union is of a war word immigrants so it was a civil war sorts but it was thought by people that were coming here that were from somewhere else. We always have to acknowledge that. Because if we don't then I feel as Americans go because I wouldn't born here. I'm less American by some people standards than someone who was born here which doesn't fit in my opinion the America that I think in my ideal view of it it could be to look at the state of the population of this country and the all our differences and to acknowledge some things but not acknowledge others. Talk about America's if it's this land of justice and freedom and then not acknowledge that it's a land of immigrants and not acknowledged that much of it was built by the hands of slaves and that certainly it couldn't be what it is now. Had it not been for the hundreds and hundreds of years of enslaved people doing a lot of the work? The album is named come tomorrow. The title track is about this change. We WanNA SEE RIGHT. It would be great. There was talking. I when I had Alan Together. There's some murmurings people saying we should put come more out as a single and I. I just said even though it was written before the most recent argh horrifying shooting I wrote it and we recorded it before that but that said regardless the timing of it would make it seem pretty on the button and I felt like that also would be. I've felt like it might be perceived sort of stepping in to something. That really isn't my place. I'd rather be supportive of the efforts to get some sort of sane situation with guns and automatic weapons in this country rather than I would try and jump in the middle of somebody else's terrible situation. Pretend I'm part of it. That song is at the same time as it's in some ways for me quite cynical it is also you know when I talked to my children about how they see the world I mean their view is so much more open and tolerant. Even though I feel like I grew up very tolerant person and the seventies was as far as the authorities were concerned. The late seventies was a very tolerant. Time it was like suddenly were all like laughing at the stupidity of are the girls are teenagers sixteen. Yeah and if you have a teenager now than you are likely involved in conversation about gender and fluidity. Yes that is not the one that you and I grew up with. No it's almost unthinkable but my kids they're also connected to each other now as well through technology not always great but I think a lot of times. It is actually not a bad thing because they're always in touch with each other a lot of time. Maybe it's not the deepest conversations but sometimes it is deep conversation. I learn to be more tolerant. Watch myself around from them more as they learn from me. I'm glad maybe I made them lean toward a kindness. But you know sometimes I found my pig. I'll say something in the car. I never can't say that Dan. I say I can say it and I will say in the safety of my family knowing that you better know that. Have I say some crazy shit that you know where my heart is because you sit around in my house and Smelly.
