It’s, like, no, it’s not [work that way], at least with our group. There can be session guys or whatever that can work like that, like, “Hey, I want a bluesy jingle that looks something like that”, and they can pull it out of their ass in a minute. But we are not like that.
“With the movie industry, they were, like, ‘We want a song for the movie, and that’s the description of the game. So we wrote something, and we returned it, and we had no response for weeks, months. And then they said, “Yeah, well, the director doesn’t really like that part” – I guess like a 20 second clip – and he’s, “Yeah, he doesn’t like that. Can you change that? And I’m, “No, I can’t. I do not change. I am sorry. Don’t use the song then. ” I was angry. They were, like, ‘They wanted more like a AC DC style, ‘and I am,’ so fucking call AC DC».
“We wrote a fucking killer song, and the music director of the movie chose us, he loves the song, but the director says, ‘Well that’s in conflict with that.’ , he added. “I am,” You had it for months. Why didn’t you tell us months ago? Especially now with the pandemic, no one is in the same room together. It’s not like we all live in the same studio and can just pop stuff out of our butts all day. ”
