Loudwire have a new article online today in which Maynard, Adam and Danny each talk about Undertow on it’s 22nd anniversary. They talk about the album, the motivation behind the band in those days, as well as some further insight into the difficulties they were having with Paul D’Amour at the time:
“Paul really wanted to be a guitar player early on,” Carey says. “Even before we started on Undertow, he wanted to get another bass player in the band so he could play guitar. And we were all just like, ‘There’s no way we’re getting another a–hole in this band to deal with.’ But he really wasn’t happy with things the way they were. And that became more and more apparent over time.”
It’s an interesting article and worth the read.
