This is my internet treasure chest - basically anything I find that I think is rad I'll throw on here.

Bill Stevenson gives the best interviews
What do you think is striking about the Descendents? Why do you think all of these people are coming out to see you guys all these years later and still want to see you come out the new music? What makes you relevant today and always?
Bill: Our lack of a focused, conscious plan or strategy for the band has kind of been our best friend because we just let the songs themselves dictate the compass course that we would take at any given time, and I think that has served to have us come off as a pretty honest band. I think people are intuitive to that when they listen and they pick up on that.
On the ALL greatest hits record and the possibility of remastering Descendents records.
Bill: I remixed all of that. That’s cool because I have not really talked to people about that. When you remix, to me it is always really tricky because what you are doing there is messing with history, and so I think there has to be a tremendous amount of reverence, respect, and caution given to the original thing because you cannot do anything that runs counter to the original ethos. You have to do it with the genuine intent of I really think this is what we were going for, but we did not know how to pull it off at the time.
