Rock Star Quote of the Week: Pat Wilson of Weezer

Weezer Red
Weezer’s New CD. So Good!

“I have this conversation with engineers all the time. A drummer comes in and says, ‘I want it to sound like “When the Levee Breaks.”’ And the engineer always says, ‘Really? Okay, here’s what I’m going to do…’ and he throws up a couple of mics and the drummer plays and it sounds like shit (laughs). Then the drummer asks, ‘Why doesn’t it sound like “When the Levee Breaks”? And the engineer says, ‘Because you don’t play like John Bonham!’ It’s true! It happens all the time. ‘You want to sound like James Brown? Okay!’”
