We’re plundering the video vaults of That Metal Show every day in November, and today’s bounty comes up a double winner from Season 4.
First, TMS co-host Jim Florentine asks Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer about the difference between writing songs while under the influence of intoxicants (as ’Smith did in the old days) versus soldiering on while sober (as has been the rocking since 1987’s Permanent Vacation).
Suffice to say, when Joey hears other musicians claim they have to get wasted to create great music, he’s got a definitive one-word answer for them. The drum deity also reveals the one classic Aerosmith LP on which he says, “I had no idea what I was doing!”
Kip and Reb pinpoint Beavis and Butt-head’s wussy Stewart character, who infamously wore a Winger t-shirt, as the moment it began. Then Kip says he used to wonder if B+B creator Mike Judge had a very specific (and funny) grudge against him.
