AP.net Interview: Jimmy Eat World

Posted by - 10:06 AM on 06/03/13
Our interview with Jimmy Eat World can be found here.
Many writing and recording musicians write based on trying to chase a particular listener, chase the approval of somebody besides yourself, whether that person is a radio programmer, a quote unquote “fan,” or the 18-25 demographic. When you start chasing the approval of some completely unknown, unquantifiable listener, then you’re going to end up with something that you’re not going to be proud of. It’s not going to be rewarding. It’s not going to feel good for you to put your name on. Is there a single? Is there not a single? Who’s going to like this record? Are your fans going to like this record? Is anybody going to like this record? I think you have to be brutally honest with yourself and not care, throw all that out the window when you’re writing and when you’re recording.
