“I spent a lot of time running a skit with Elliott Smith, wherein I’m teaching him how to scat. That’s probably my favorite memory of him. I’m just breaking it down syllable by syllable, and he’s pretending that he’s dumb and doesn’t understand. We did it on a Heatmiser tour. We thought it was really funny. He was pretty big on running gags, like a joke that would come back and come back and come back. So that was fun. And really, my perspective on him is kind of skewed. I just played “Saturday Night Live” with him when he was a solo guy and went on tour with Heatmiser in their last vestiges. But yeah, he was super funny.”
