G-Eazy brings Janis Joplin to 2011.
“I was digging through my mom’s record collection and stumbled upon Janis Joplin’s ‘Pearl’ record. I had heard “Mercedes Benz” before, but it had been a few years. It was one of those moments where I instantly jumped up, and decided it would be a dope song to flip. The concept is so relatable, and the passion is so present in her voice. The original is an acapella, so I wrote some chords and called my homie John Michael over to lay down some acoustic guitar parts down behind her vocal. I’m stoked on how it came out.”
You can also catch G-Eazy on tour with Shwayze & Mod Sun. No one consulted me on calling it the Casual Sex tour but they should have.
