A friend in common reported this to me the other day. I had no idea. Tis quite true, though.

I guess ol' Neil has pretty good taste in guitar players. Who knew??

I've been thinking about starting a thread about Matt Sweeney and his fascinating career, but there's already this one!
tune in tonight to see him on American Idol.

Shredding any credibility I have left today, cuz @JakeBugg dared me to play on American Idol with him. Can you wear sweatpants on this show?

OTM though I wish Chavez would just come back and play full time and put out new albums every year.

those guitar moves youtube videos he does for noisey seem like the funnest fucking thing like "oh sweet let me go smoke up with billy gibbons/josh homme/st vincent and talk shop about guitar"

was a guest on the wtf podcast this week. found it interesting that his dad was a college professor and his mom is a federal judge. also he talks about Chavez in the present tense.

s & d :: desert sessions is a thread I keep reviving and receiving very little interest, so I'm reaching out to its members' home threads.
