Also, do you work w/ any jam style bands and how do you do studio work w/ those bands?
I have worked with Blues Traveler and a few other jam-type bands. Generally, they set up and play live, so they can improvise and free-ball it the way they do onstage. It's a familiar and comfortable way for me to work.
If you're asking if I 'shroom first, then no, I don't 'shroom first.
Vinyl or Digital?
Neither. I go straight for the vagina. You find them on women.
P.S. You going to The Taste?
I've had my quota of REO Speedwagon and Buddy Guy for the year, so I'll pass thanks. Big public scenes full of white hats, guidos and suburban blues fan dorks... no thanks. I'd rather have my nuts crushed in a vise.
Which Chicago rock critic is a bigger douchebag; Bill Wyman, Jim DeRogatis, Greg Kot, or someone else?
Well, Jim DeRogatis is clearly the biggest, and Wyman no longer even pretends to cover Chicago, so he's immaterial. Kot generally has his heart in the right place, though he does fall for sucker bait like the Polyphonic Spree and the like. The dumbest professional music writer in Chicago though is a retard named Jessica Hopper, whose writing is simultaneously sophomoric, vapid and excruciatingly self-satisfied. It is literally impossible to glean any actual content or criticism from her writing, which is an achievement of some sort, I suppose.
