Why didn’t Tom play drums on 3 of the songs? The insert on the CD said that he doesn’t play on 21, What You Want, or Island.
That wasn’t really a decision that was made by the band, but it happened. It’s still a decision that I didn’t back up, I got kind of overruled by the rest of the band and the label. It was after we were totally done tracking, and mixing was about to happen, apparently Kenny Aranof and [producer] Howard Benson, they were talking about the songs. Supposedly just spontaneously they started re-tracking a couple of the drums. I wasn’t happy about it when it happened. I’m still not totally happy, but it got so ridiculous as far as compromising with people, and [deciding] which version was the better version. I had to just swallow my pride and realize that the songs are still the songs that we wrote. They have really subtle differences. If you heard the original versions, they’re really not that far off.






I would be really offended if I was tom..let alone kenny being upset. It's almost saying ...his druming sucks lets let someone else redo it

Yeah, I'd be pretty pissed about the drumming thing. 3 songs is a lot to not play on a record, particularly since one is the single.

Either way, great interview.
