Yesterday I joined my band The Blissters in downtown Chicago to tape an episode of JBTV, a music television show. They interviewed us for a good half-hour, and we performed six songs. People prompted me to talk about The Zen of Zombie a little bit, but mostly we just talked about playing music.
If you’re unfamiliar, JBTV is hosted by this guy named Jerry Bryant who’s a real character and has been putting on this music show for over 20 years. He’s had everyone from the Ramones to Green Day to Bjork to INXS on his program, as well as bands that aren’t so big yet (like us).
At one point, when the cameras were off, I asked Jerry: “So dude, of all the bands you’ve had on over the years, who was the hardest to work with? Who were real jerks?”
He was like: “Nobody has EVER been hard to work with. EVERYBODY I’ve ever had on the show has been totally awesome! …except for maybe Oasis.”
That made me laugh.
Anyhow, if you’re in Chicago, our episode of JBTV will air next week at these times:
Thursday November 20th at 8pm on Channel 25, Saturday November 22nd on Channel 34 at 11pm, Sunday November 23rd at Midnight on Channel 25, and Wednesday November 26th at 9pm on Channel 25. (All times CST.)
