Paul Westerberg Using Glen Campbell As A Test of Interest
Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson, currently with Guns N' Roses, recently released his second solo album One Man Mutiny. But his lifelong friend is less sure there's a market for new product. Westerberg tells the Village Voice: "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."
His song Ghost on the Canvas gave its title to Campbell's final album and his track Any Trouble also appears. But Westerberg recorded the former himself in 2009 and the latter ten years earlier, and he's not sure how many people know that. "I just don't know if anyone has noticed," he says. "When somebody tells you they like a song well enough to record it, it makes you think, 'Well, I'm not finished'." more on this story
