The Story Behind "45"

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/25/12)
Check out a video interview with Brian Fallon about the story behind "45," here.
From the Article"I didn't know what was going to happen. After American Slang, after The '59 Sound, I was like, 'What am I gonna do?'" Fallon says in the exclusive video below. "Is there any more Gaslight songs? It's a scary thing when that feeling hits you. After we wrote the song '45,' I was like 'Thank God.' I just knew it was gonna be all right.

Also the last little ending clip, where he talks about not being ready to talk about things when he was younger -- makes me wonder if a lot of the reason he relied on the nostalgia/storytelling lyrical theme on 59/AS was that he wasn't comfortable narrating his own "just aghh" stories from the first person. Either way, stoked for the new record.

Agree completely. Should be interesting to see the more personal gaslight from now on.

Love the band but the 'interview' is really awkward. He's clearly not being interviewed. More of a band produced promo video. It's like he's turned these words over in his head preparing for when he could fit them into an interview and it comes off really cheesy and rehearsed.
Again, love the band, just thought he came off as a bit lame in this one.
