Andy Greene (incidentally, a friend of mine from high school), interviews longtime Pearl Jam producer Brendan O’Brien about the bands’ new record, “Lightning Bold”:
It’s easy for a band that’s been around for a long time to gear down a bit when it comes to songwriting and making records. It’s very easy to bring it down. But not these guys. They want it badly. I think that’s awesome. I’m very happy with that.
