Julian Casablancas is “not super down” with ‘Meet Me in the Bathroom’
Meet Me in the Bathroom, Lizzy Goodman’s oral history of NYC’s early ’00s indie rock scene, made headlines last year for a lot of reasons, one of which was because of the tumultuous relationship between Ryan Adams and The Strokes. As NME points out, Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas addressed the Ryan Adams beef in a new interview with Matt Wilkinson on Beats 1, and he also said he’s “not super down with the book.” Here’s the full quote:
They didn’t interview my wife who was basically The Strokes co-manager for 10 years. They didn’t even interview her and they interviewed other people – I’m just not super down with the book.
And also even the Ryan Adams thing, I mean I might have been the one that did it so I don’t know, because you just speak in an interview, but I just feel like I wouldn’t blame him for anything anyone else did. I’m just not into things, throwing people under the bus for any reason or…You know what man, let people enjoy it – I shouldn’t be involved, I don’t care to be honest.
Julian was also on the show to talk about the upcoming album from his band The Voidz. You can listen to the whole interview below.
