Adam Hearts Glenn
Inside Bay Area - Fountains of Wayne shows versatility
Q. Was there a time when you wrote sincere, confessional songs from the heart?
A. I think when we were starting out, it was more about imitating our songwriting heroes. We would try to write songs like Neil Finn or we would try to write songs like Ray Davies or we would try to write songs like Glenn Tilbrook.
Q. I see that you'll be playing with Tilbrook's band, Squeeze, at the Mountain Winery.
A. We are doing a bunch of dates with them this summer. ... Actually one of the most flattering things that's happened to us is that Glenn Tilbrook started playing "Red Dragon Tattoo" in his own set.
