Fitzi Completely Fangirls Over Grinspoon's Phil Jamieson
We can’t remember this ever happening before but this example of fangirling over Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson was heckin' next level.
And it wasn’t even Carmen.
A few weeks prior, both Fitzi and Potts had seen Grinspoon when the band toured their debut album, Guide To Better Living, as part of its 20th anniversary.
Jamieson said it wasn’t an easy album to perform live, due to its ferocity.
“We had Dunsborough the night before… and that was pretty hectic,” he told Carmen and Fitzi.
“Dunsborough was gnarly, dude.”
Which led to the issue of putting on gigs at night.
“You didn’t start the show until after 10pm,” Fitzi said.
“For a couple of blokes [he and Potts] with kids, that’s pretty late… I didn’t get home until 3am... you got me in the shit, Phil.”
Jamieson apologised and agreed that in an ideal world, he’d love nothing more than to hit the stage at 8.30pm.
“I like early shows… we had been going on at sometimes on a Wednesday night at 10.30pm, so you can imagine those guys getting home at 3am on a school night.”
Jamieson also weighed in, but was somewhat coy, on whether we'd hear from Grinspoon, as an outfit, again.
“I just know that, for example, John Farnham said he was coming back and then he came back and then he came back again and then he stopped coming back and then he came back again,” Jamieson said.
“But we know you only really get once chance to have a comeback.”
Jamieson said that he wanted to make sure that the first impressions of getting back to seeing people again for the first time was good.
Which is why we’re hell excited about the 96FM Kick Start Summer Concert, because we've locked Jamieson in.
Kicking off at 2pm at Ascot Racecourse on November 12, the concert will have more of a 'festival' feel.
“I’ll be playing some tunes that people will know, but it’ll be the opposite of ferocious, let’s put it that way,” Jamieson said.
“It’s gonna be such a good day.”
Along with Jamieson, the line-up includes Jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss, Daryl Braithwaite, Thirsty Merc and End Of Fashion.
