Kurt Vile is a longtime J Mascis fan and recently got the chance to interview his fellow Ernie Ball artist about his band’s (Dinosaur Jr) latest album, “Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not.” Mascis and Vile are friends and frequent collaborators – Vile has played with Dinosaur Jr several times, and Mascis featured Vile on his Several Shades of Why solo LP. Rolling Stone asked Vile to interview his friend and mentor about “Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not.”
“I’m trying to think of ways to learn the songs now that they’re out. We learned two of them to play on a show. It feels like a big task to learn them to play live. I guess we should practice.” – J Mascis
