high50이라는 매체에서 Chris Frantz의 인터뷰를 올렸다. 특이하게도 인생의 각 국면에서 어떤 음악을 고를 것인가 하는 주제의 인터뷰였다. 크리스프란츠의 멋진 음악취향을 알아보자.
What is the first pop or rock track that you remember?
‘Hound Dog’ by Elvis Presley. I was singing it around our house and my mother said, “Hush, Chris. That Elvis Presley is so vulgar”.
Chris Frantz와 Tina Weymouth가 그들의 새 E.P. Downtown Rockers와 그들의 삶, 그리고 음악에 대해서 인터뷰를 가졌다.
It’s often said that a drummer and bass player have to be “married” to form a great rhythm section. But you and Chris actually are husband and wife! [Tina laughs] Does either one lead?
“The drums always lead. The drums work the band. A bass player follows the drummer – always. It doesn’t matter what band you’re in. You can’t do it any other way. I mean, Tricky tries to do it a different way, but Tricky’s Tricky. He is exactly what he says he is – he doesn’t do music, he does image.
“I mean, look at Ringo Starr. George Martin told The Beatles, ‘You’re great, but you’ve got to get another drummer. You’ve got to get a real drummer.’ And Ringo Starr was the real drummer. He kept a very lighthearted, humorous repartee going, but he worked that band. He was an artist. So yes, it’s always a chemistry that starts with the drums.”
