The radio have called Greg K. during Warped Tour and the interview will be aired on 26th... I'll be recording it and post it here. There should be some talk of the new album and other interesting stuff, after all, it's Greg K. speaking.

Actually, it's more likely the interview will bring up nothing new, as Greg K has proven before he's not usually kept in the loop as much as Dexter and Noodles, not to mention the obvious handicap of being the sky, not so talkative one.

Dude, wish you'd have seen his interview on some Finnish magazine couple of years ago, he said some interesting facts about Ron's leaving that you didn't hear from Dexter or Noodles. Once you get to talk to him, he can be pretty talkative. Besides, it's just an phone interview so no need to be nervous, maybe he'll speak his mouth clear this time. ;)

Well fingers crossed then.

Is there a transcripted copy of this old Finnish interview I can get my hands on somewhere?

Well, the whole interview is on Finnish, it's pretty funny from some parts. Like how they left him in Berlin all alone, and the story of their first gig in Finland. But I could translate it (shitty translation) of the Ron part:

-We felt like it was time for a change, Greg started and had a long break. -We had maybe a bit difference in opinions where this band should be lead for. All kinds of stuff (disagreements) came during these years. This felt like a right time to move on.

At the Offspring's homepage the member change was told as Welty's own willing to focus on his own project called Steady Ground. So now it was left a bit uncertain, did Ron get fired or was the decision after all his own?

-Heh, well, officially we say that it was our all common decision, but things like these never are fully common decisions you know. The decision was maybe more our [Dexter, Noodles, Greg] than his [Ron]. But I think that everyone are happy at the situation right now and we are looking forward to continue with our new drummer.

The interview sucked bad time. It sucks even more if you're not Finnish, most of it it's just the dj talking shit in Finnish, but I guess I could upload if you want to listen to the Greg bits, which are on 01:30, 02:20, 03:05, 03:36, 04:06, 04:49, 06:13 and 06:55... just try to figure out the questions somehow. Well actually I could write down the main points of the questions as well...

[01.30] At what point are the Offspring at their career right now, new beginning or beginning of the end?

[02.20] About Greatest Hits being a forum for new listeners...

[03.05] About the Police cover Next To You...

[03.36] New album, when...

[04.06] Do you have much unreleased songs and is it possible to release a b-sides album in the future?

[04.49] About other Warped Tour bands and tattoos...

[06.13] Why are they so famous at Europe unlike some punk bands...

[06.55] About their previous shows in Finland...

You don't really need to know what the interviewer says, mostly he just translates his answers and adds some info and facts... just look at the main points of the questions that I wrote. Still, it could've been better, longer without Finnish at all, just the interview but it's understandable of course.

What Greg said about B-side songs??please
They weren't as good as album songs......sometimes he speaks very quickly.......

1-2 b-sides per album? I wonder if they had any b-sides for s/t that we haven't heard of yet.

edit: oh yeah... thanks for the interview, even thought it sucked. I think I just got a little excited that I was going to hear something new about the next offspring album. Oh well..

The-Offspring-RuLe

I think he said some really positive things in that interview, i heard Greg quite well the sound quality wasn't bad either...although hearing the songs in the background was annoying. But he said ''we still enjoy playing the shows, we still enjoy making music, so as long as things seem like therye fresh, it still excites us, and we'll still do it''

scream
07-26-2005, 06:56 PM
i think greg just became my favorite member of the band.
