16. We asked him about the strangest thing heas ever signed, recording with Spinal Tap and singing with Crowded House. Q: You mixed the album in Vancouver. Have you spent a lot of time here? A: Iave done a lot of recording in Vancouver. My longtime associate Mike Fraser is a, what do you say, Vancouveran, Vancouverite? I met him back in a96 when we were doing the first live G3 recording. Weave done a lot of albums, maybe 10 or 12, since then. We recorded a lot of one at the Armoury. But weave done mainly a lot of mixing up at Bryan Adamsas studio, the Warehouse. So weare very comfortable going up there for a few weeks at a time. Q: You played on the Spinal Tap album Break Like the Wind (1992), correct?
Your Worst Concert Experience: The Phantom Grabber
Its a classic middle-class instinct: avoid conflict at all costs, even if it means lying to yourself. Maybe there wasnt someone grabbing our ass, we said to ourselves. Maybe it was just a weird coincidence. There was no reason to take any action at all, because surely something so outrageous wouldnt happen IN A CIVILIZED WORLD! Finally, though, we couldnt keep up the fantasy. Every two minutes or so, our asses would get grabbed, and instead of enjoying the show (I think they did a good job, those Weezers) and focusing on the music, we were worried about the next attack on our defenseless hindquarters. Tentatively, I finally asked Nate if he had noticed anything odd, and he confirmed that we were under a full assault. And this is shameful to admit, but I was relieved that it was happening to him too. I didnt want to carry that burden alone. The problem identified, we tried to catch the Phantom Grabber in action. The problem was, he was too fast. Clearly this was a criminal on the move. When we spun around, looking for him, we only saw a group of older girls behind us. And as much as we would have fucking loved to believe they were the guilty partya prelude to a hook-up, perhaps?!in our hearts we knew that if someone was grabbing our asses at a concert, there was a 100 percent chance that it was a creepy dude.
