Dickinson talks 'Mats

Posted By on Wed, Sep 24, 2008 at 11:07 AM



The Memphis Flyer has a nice interview with LR native Jim Dickinson about producing the Replacement's "Pleased to Meet Me" at Ardent Studios in Memphis. Yesterday, Rhino reissued the album, along with "Tim," "All Shook Down" and "Don't Tell a Soul," with added bonus tracks.

 Your son Luther of the North Mississippi Allstars plays guitar on "Shooting Dirty Pool." How old was he, 14?

Yep. 14. When I was doing the movie Crossroads with Steve Vai, Luther had learned a lot of those Steve Vai tricks. The laughing thing. I can't remember what they all were. Luther had names for them. He said, "Well, what do you want me to do, Daddy?" I said just make the Steve Vai sounds. And that's what he did.

What did the band think about that?

Westerberg loved it. It was just off the wall enough for him. In fact, the line in the song "You're the coolest guy I ever did smell" ... he's talking about Luther. Luther was wearing aftershave lotion. He didn't know you weren't supposed to wear it in the studio. He came in smelling, and Westerberg nailed him!
