Consequence of Sound interviews Peter Jesperson about Songs for Slim

While you’re eagerly awaiting the 10 a.m. (Central Time) start of the Songs for Slim auction, you can read the entire interview on CoS obviously, but this little bit sure made me perk up this morning:

“Any chance of having a one-off concert event or mini-tour to go in support of it?

That’s more their business. New West is donating our label services and our time. That is really in the hands of those guys. If they wanted to, they will. I don’t know if that is going to happen. It’s certainly, obviously, with the Replacements auction starting next week, it’s not going to tie into that. They may do some playing. Paul and Tommy have already talked about doing some additional recordings just because they had such a good time, and these turned out so good. I think it’s possible, yeah. But not in the immediate future. There are no specific plans.”

    damn…i just drove the first two up past 500 in 5 minutes and still dont have a high bid. I will wait for 9 days and 23 hours and 59 minutes.

    I put in a symbolic bid and by the time I got my confirmation email I was already outbid by like $100.

    You mean you’re not the $10,000 dollar bidder;)
    Bless that person…they have a big heart.

    I love the mysterious $10K bidder. Sadly, it’s not me.

    Not me either…
    George Wendt would be my guess… I want it to be Norm!

    I’m expecting Billie Joe Armstong to pony up some serious cash.
