Just a mere six days away until I get to see these scrappers play Toronto. It’ll be the first time these guys have played together in 22 years (!!!). Toronto will be the first of three Riot Fest gigs the guys’ll play. The line-up for the band has been confirmed to include: Paul Westenberg and the band’s baby spice Tommy Stinson. They will also be playing with session drummer Josh Freese and guitarist David Minehan.
“Paul and I always end up doing things together, but I don’t think there’s any point to a reunion. There’s such baggage, more so for Paul. I still think he’s a little bummed out his career didn’t skyrocket after the Mats broke up. He’s had to deal with competing with his past, and for him it was kind of tough.” – Stinson on reuniting with Westenberg
