    Thanks HMX, I did a thread about the interviews a few days ago. Can't wait for a Pearl Jam interview. Or hell, maybe one with Earth, Wind, and Fire!

    Nice, the Mute Math interview interests me, thanks. You all are so awesome for getting in these interviews with the bands, you really do take that extra step after licensing music

    Only listened to the Thompson interview so far, but very impressed with the breadth of your musical knowledge on display; not just Thompson's career and catalog, but even a James Carr reference? Almost made me think I was wrong about "The Way That It Shows" being one of Thompson's weaker compositions. Maybe if I did hear James Carr sing it...

    Hey, thanks loads for that-- I didn't want to get too high falutin' with the Carr reference, but I know that RT is a fan of that sort of thing. I'm a pretty major Thompson fan myself and I'll admit I've always loved "The Way That It Shows," though I didn't have anything to do with its making the game. I think I can safely say that it was chosen because of the amazing guitar solo.

    BM: Were there any songs that were especially satisfying from the bass perspective to play?

    TS: The songs on In Step were really good. That was my favorite record we did. We were thinking about putting that on this thing you got going, because it's the best record we did. It was the first one after Stevie and I got clean and sober. And it's a really superior record to the rest of them.

    BM: There are some great songs on that record.

    TS: "Crossfire" was a number one song for about six weeks. That'd be a good one to put on there.
    Please, LISTEN TO THIS GUY.
