Stewart Copeland Talks Oysterhead In New Interview
Radio.com’s Brian Ives asked Stewart the million dollar question -would Oysterhead ever do a second album or tour? Copeland responded, “We haven’t actually all been in the same room at the same time for quite a while. I saw Trey not too long ago, I see Les all the time, and we all say, ‘Yeah, we’re gonna do it, we’re gonna do it!’ And we all love the idea, but the two other guys have working bands. I’ve got what I’m doing, but I’m probably a lot more available than they are. But when a hole in both of their schedules emerges, we’ll probably do something.” Les Claypool provided a similar response when asked about a potential Oysterhead return during a recent visit to SiriusXM’s Jam_ON.
Copeland added that he’d like to get Anastasio and Claypool to his Sacred Grove studio compound to record a track before doing anything else. Speaking of Sacred Grove, Stewart also shares the story of how he had a magical jam session with Copeland and Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart at the compound. Unfortunately, the hard drives containing the footage of the session crashed before he was able to do anything with it.
Head to Radio.com for Copeland’s thoughts on the current situation in the Middle East and much more. I’d like to get both of them over here to the Sacred Grove, just to do a Sacred Grove track just for a start.
