Leif Blower

Is the return of Leif Garrett a sure sign of the Apocalypse?

Q: Sounds as if your new band was going to record a hard-rock version of "I Was Made for Dancin'," but now that's not happening?

A: We did it a couple times on tour; it turned out really well, and people really liked it. But I called up the people who owned the publishing and said, "Look, I wanna do a remake of this song. We know it's gonna be a big hit again if we do it right, and I think we can. Since I got boned the first time around, you guys gotta give me some publishing [rights]; you gotta give me something." They're like, "Nah." I was like, "OK, well fuck you then. I'm not doing it."

Q: That'll show 'em!

A: I wasn't about to just give them more money without getting something. It's like, "You guys haven't made millions enough off it?"

Q: It must be tough to approach big record companies today just to be told, "We don't want you; you haven't had a hit in 25 years. You're washed up."

A: I've never heard those words. Um, I haven't heard that. If someone's saying that, I don't want to meet them.
