"I've always felt that drummer Mike Dillard was one of us. It's great that he's still a piece of the puzzle! Plus, I get to see what it's like being the bass player in the Melvins! Tres Cabrones indeed!"
Buzz agrees 'Tres Cabrones' is as close as they're willing to get to the Melvins 1983 line-up, adding:
"The best part is it's all new songs. I specifically wrote tunes that would be good for these guys to play and it worked out great. We had no interest in rehashing tunes we wrote 30 years ago and chose instead to simply create newsongs. It worked out perfectly."
The Melvins are currently on their 30th anniversary tour without Jared Warren (currently on paternity leave) and with Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers) on bass.
Funny factoid: Mike briefly played in Kurt Cobain's first band, Fecal Matter, in 1996.
