It's not often that Paul Westerberg talks to the press these days -- a fact that Village Voice contributor Peter Gerstenzang brags about in the intro to his new Q&A -- so it's interesting that the former Replacements frontman has shown up not once, but two separate times in New York blogs this past month.
Are you thinking of putting out a proper solo album again, or have you had it with the industry?Ah, the old "I'd like to go on record, but I can't" line. So tantalizing. So vague. Still, it sounds like a new Westerberg album is far more likely than anything else from the Replacements camp these days, so we're keeping our fingers crossed.
I'm always writing and I have plenty of songs, but I think the Glen Campbell record is a bit of a test to see if people still buy records. Or go for my stuff. I'd like to go on record and say something concrete, but I can't. So, we shall see.
