We spent the weekend in Appleton, WI with four of our friends — Phil Davis, Butch Vig, Frank Anderson and Peter Anderson — who were playing together for the first time as “The Emperors of Wyoming.” The occasion was The Mile of Music festival.
The four of them live in four different cities, two in California and two in Wisconsin. They created the 10 country-rock tracks on the album in their respective home recording studios, posting tracks on a shared FTP site for the others to hear, each building on what the other had done.
We also got time to catch up with Wendy Schneider, who is making a documentary on Butch’s SMART STUDIOS, which Frank is helping on. Can’t wait to see it!
