If you’ve ever taken a stroll down Hollywood Blvd, you know that the sidewalks are frequented by almost every type of person you can imagine (and then some), including the kind who look as though, given the chance, they might happily walk off with our gear. We found ourselves constantly weighing the consequences of ruining a good take versus losing our stuff. Aside from dodging opportunistic boulevardians, our other major challenge was finding a shot that wasn’t dominated by traffic noise. After sweating it out on the streets for a couple hours we began to think we might leave SOCAL with nothing. We had a show ahead of us and afterword a drive to the central valley for another day’s event. But just as we thought we were losing “daylight” this happened…. well it happened about 7 times (but no one has to know that).
Daylight is on the new album Economy due out 11.1.11.
