At work listening to I Hate Music Podcast featuring: Daniel Menche
Mr. Menche tells a story about one of the guitarist from Godspeed You! Black Emperor being flown over to Europe to be part of some guitar group that was going to play while Patti Smith read poetry. Eveidently the GY!BE guitarist didnít know how to read music/keep time and Flea from RHCP went ballistic going off on the guy.
Anyone else familiar with this story?
Daniel Menche talks about being a school teacher and how he can hear the band practicing down the hallway......and all they do is keep time and keeping time = math and who wants to listen to math???
And there is over an hour of the podcast remaining : )
