After after his brief stint as a roadie with the Melvins, our columnist had the good fortune of making music with the band. Listen to an mp3 of them playing "Sacrifice."
In his weekly column over on the Daily Weekly, Krist Novoselic talks about hitching back from California as a roadie for the Melvins, The Mamas & the Papas, and what the significance of a California constitutional convention would be:
"I was born in California and lived there until I was 14. At 20 I returned as a roadie for the Melvins, driving an old VW van painted with zebra stripes. I've lost count of how many times I've traveled up and down the West Coast on I-5. I'm connected with Los Angeles and San Francisco through many friends, family members, and associates in the entertainment industry."
