|Counting Crows have an excellent new album out today and we have a special interview with Adam Duritz talking about it. Check it out here.|
I don’t think anyone knows what sells records. There is literally no one who thought our first record was going to sell that many. There’s no way. Nobody did. It just happens sometimes. You can’t manipulate popular culture. Well, I guess sometimes you can, but we’re not in that business. The smartest thing we always seemed to do was do what we wanted to do, since that’s what got us there in the first place. Our best records were always going to be made by us, so we just made the records we wanted to make. There’s a certain truth in that that bears out to your audience, too, and to the people watching you.
