Meiko, October 2, 2008
Meiko is returning to Boise in November, to be part of the Hotel Cafe Tour. She told great stories of growing up in a small Georgia town, and eventually moving to L.A. to wait tables and play music at the Hotel Cafe. Her father taught her to play guitar, for the longest time she thought "Stairway to Heaven" was written by him.
Before the interview, she shared that she had the worst dream last night. "I was married with a family, realizing this guy in bed with me was my husband. I didn't even know my last name. I asked my 4 year old daughter, she told me it was BUMBLEBEE." Hmmm.
She and her record rep agreed that "wet dog" was the worst smell in the world they could think of.
Meiko did this great song for us in studio, "Boys with Girlfriends."
After the interview, she invited me to go shopping because she loves Ross, but I had some work to do. We look forward to her return at the Hotel Cafe Tour November 13th at the Knitting Factory.
