last night in charlotte we ate chinese food at our friend andy johnson’s house. he popped in a copy of the woodstock 99 dvd, which includes our performance and a clip of an interview with us. we refused to watch our performance (we’re like that) but we watched the interview and it went like this:
interviewer: “so, what was it like to play to 200,000 people?”
ryan: “umm, i don’t know you’d have to ask adam durwitz.”
that was pretty much the whole clip. the joke works not because we are making fun of the less-attended stage we played on, but because ryan pronounced the counting crows’ singer’s name wrong. and that’s why the joke works.
