We interupt the Dandy Warhols spam to bring you Joel Gion hilarity. *highlight the text, I refuse to change my the colour from white simply to convenience you fucking people
In Raleigh, me and Joel were walking down the street and this truck pulls up, or drives by next to us, and I hear this, [imitates redneck accent and laughter] "There's two dick-suckers, there!" And it's like, "Whatever, man. Laugh all you want, redneck, I'm on my way to your girlfriend's house."
It was kind of embarrassing though because we were.... we were sucking each other's dicks at the time.
Matt Hollywood and Brent DeBoer on Joel Gion.
Joel became sort of, the inspiration for aesthetic choices, visually, and language and... Joel sort of inspired... he was kind of our minister of propaganda or spokesman of the revolution as far as... He just, he talked like a 60 year old black man. So it was just, you know, how could we not be cool if we've got this guy just saying, 'Dig this' and 'Dig that!' and 'Yeah, baby!', you know? Way before Austen Powers, of course.
Yeah, I felt really sorry for Joel when that movie came out 'cause we had this guy... [jovial, exasperated sigh] That was a drag.
Yeah so, he just kept inspiring us to keep everything hip. It was always a party with him around.
Drugged up freaks go nuts for Tang!
