R.I.P. Nate Dogg

My homie Kevin sent me this message after learning that Long Beach rapper Nate Dogg died on Tuesday at 41: “I can’t believe it ... or maybe I just don't want to. But the rhythm is no longer the bass, and the bass is no longer the treble.”

Mike Watt with Iggy Pop. Watt’s the bass player for The Stooges these days.


Mike Watt’s in town tonight

I got to interview him. He’s great.

Some musicians seem to hate the press, and it makes for distracted or antagonistic conversations. Later, I have to re-live the awkwardness as I listen to the recording. I guess I understand. Maybe it gets old talking to idiot reporters who misquote you or contort your answers, and the musicians start to assume that’s always the case.

Watt’s probably given hundreds of interviews, yet he seemed genuine and thoughtful. His voice is gruff, just like it is when he sings on his records. There’s nothing fake or put-on about him. It was fascinating to talk to him about the bass and improvisation, and where he is in his life right now.

As a side note, he also got his own record label off the ground this year. He’ll be putting out albums every two months or so.
