GUITAR WORLD – KINGS OF LEON INTERVIEW (FEBRUARY 2011)

Wow! I’m so happy! Two of my posts on Tumblr got reblogged! I think that’s a huge achievement, whether it’s one person or many.

So it’s only natural I should share this here, on my “mother blog”.

(1)
Guitar World: Matthew, you take some pretty ripping solos on the album. Like the one in “Mary”, for example…
Caleb: That one and the one he does in “No Money” are my two favourite solos of his on the record.
Matthew: [to Caleb] I think they’re the only ones on the record, bro.
Guitar World: Are they improvised?
Matthew: Yup. Both of those were live in the studio, one take, and I was so mad because I wanted to do more.
Caleb: He always hates them, and we’re all like, “That’s perfect!”

One of the many reasons why I adore Matthew!

Caleb:
Also, when I see things going too well, it scares me. I want there to be some kind of confusion and some kind of “I hope it’s gonna work…” To me that’s real music. And Matthew, I don’t wanna speak for him, but he can hear a song and know when it’s gonna be a hit, or when it’s gonna be this or that. And so he’s my biggest fear. When he says, “That’s a hit,” then I go, “Fuck!”

Another of those reasons. J’adore!

I’D COME A-RUNNING

It’s Matthew Followill’s birthday!

BRAND NEW START

Yayy! New blog!

I have the worst timings – changing my blog when prelims are in 2 weeks! It was a totally impromptu (and yet well-discussed) decision especially after I saw how pretty the Twitter widget is. I know I don’t reply Tweets, neither does anyone tag me, but I like how I can rant my one-off thoughts at that precise moment.

Anyway, I saw someone’s WordPress blog on Sunday, thought about it on Monday to and fro school and when I came back, I created my account! Then personalization takes priority and I think I’m sticking to the “simplicity is nice” concept which is why I think the only thing changing is the banner on top.

Speaking of the banner, I spent really long (longer than the two hours I tweeted) because I had to source for a really cool picture. After countless choices, I decided to use Matthew from KOL! The full length picture literally smoulders but I couldn’t fix it into the 770×140 dimension so I only have his hot face there.

Okay, I guess I’d better go read up – spent much time perfecting stuff to my liking!
