Chuck Comeau of Simple Plan Interview

By: Sindy

Sindy: So, there's a contest/tour sponsored by Rogers coming up where the prize is to meet you. What's it like to have tons of people enter a contest just to meet you?

Chuck: I guess it's flattering that people would take time out of their day to go online - or however they're supposed to enter - just to meet us. It's kinda weird. I know I certainly wouldn't do that to meet me - I'm not that interesting. It's kinda cool though. This concert tour gives us the chance to play free concerts all over the country and play places we haven't been before. It's going to be a good time - we're just playing a bunch of shows all over Canada.

Sindy: Are you guys playing Warp Tour this summer?

Chuck: Yeah, we're playing a few dates, but not the whole thing. We've done it before and it was amazing but this year we're making a record so, unfortunately, we can't play the whole thing. We're doing the Boston show, which is on the 10 year anniversary of the tour.

Sindy: Cool. Who's your favorite band to play with?

Chuck: That's a good question. There are so many great bands. We've got to play with almost every single band we totally love. I would say Rancid was the highlight for me because I grew up loving that band and I got to do the whole Warp Tour with them. They were so gracious and so cool.

Sindy: Did you ever think you were going to be where you are today a couple of years ago? Chuck: I guess it would be really cocky to say that we expected it, but I think we always hoped for it and worked towards it and we knew we had to work super hard to get there - and we did. It took a long time, it's not like this happened in a week but that makes it even better. It made it so much better when it finally came together.

Sindy: When will the new album be out?

Chuck: We don't have an official date yet but we're hoping to have it out by September or October 2004. We're in Vancouver right now writing some songs, so we're still trying to complete all the songs and put everything together. We're going to be in the studio in June, July and August in Montreal with Bob Rock, who made Metallica's Black Album. He's an amazing producer and we're so stoked he's working with us. So we are going to be working together for three months and hopefully have it out by October, that's the plan. And hopefully it won't suck.

Sindy: What can fans expect from this CD?

Chuck: Well, I think that we definitely, as a band, are evolving and growing - I mean it's so clich

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
