Rolling Stone talked to Cake frontman John McCrea who admitted he found it difficult to adjust to the band’s breaking it big. McCrea admits, “Initially, popularity was a very startling experience. Coming out of small cafes and bars, acoustic solo gigs and this scaled down, economical approach and then suddenly standing in front of thousands of people was very shocking. I’m more used to it now. We just played for 90,000 people in Atlanta. I probably would’ve self-destructed five or six years ago if I’d had to do that then.”
