Screaming Trees Look Back at 20 Years of ‘Nearly Lost You’ | SPIN | The Making Of | It Was 20 Years Ago….

By the sounds of the interviews, seems like Mark and I have different opinions of this song. The title reads Seattle’s unsung heroes remember (and not fondly) the grunge-pop anthem and ‘Singles’ stand-out”.

I don’t think I said anything negative about that song in the interview. I think it was a good song. It was not my favorite on that record but it was good. Also how can I complain about the sucess it has had? That is not a negitive thing, for me at least. I am not sending any of my checks back!

I am proud of that record and what we did with it.

Just my 2 cents post interview….
