Couldn’t stay awake after Bálor/Styles last night so I’m catching up with the rest of WWE TLC WTF now #tweet

The Meat Puppets play ‘Swimming Ground’ and ‘Maiden’s Milk’ on Phoenix local TV while promoting Up On The Sun. Still astounded at how fast Cris plays those bass melodies. #video

Testing out this iRig headphone amp thing I got for my bass and it’s pretty badass #tweet
