I'm a new listener. Really enjoy the podcasts. Especially enjoyed the Scholes cast on Friday.

You might want to consider re-cropping the pic above the waist for this podcast it looks like you have a giant purple vagina. Not a good look on a dude. ;-)

Would you believe those shorts were once pure black?

Great episode! Loved that strong, silent third fella John P. Sutton (bass players are the best!!)
That takedown of Alanis and her "Ironic" track was definitely one for the ages. Most ironic thing
'bout that tune is undoubtedly its title!! Perhaps she should belatedly give back some of the millions
her former manager didn't embezzle as a penance?!? Just sayin', as a whole generation of folks are
probably still confused 20 plus years later!! Also enjoyed their snarky attitude regarding some of their
previous tour mates. One innocent question: How could Scott afford to be an addict back in the day
if his band was so thoroughly screwed over by their record company?

Hey Mike,
Just a few minutes in but thought I would correct your Q/Edge Venn Diagram error. Rusty were big on Q during the heyday.....

Well I'll be...

By this point (mid-90s) I had all but abandoned Q for CFNY. I just assumed Rusty would be treated like Nirvana et al and wouldn't have been played on Q.
