Evelyn McDonnell of the Miami Herald spoke with the Vines bassist Patrick Matthews who admits he already feels a bit like long-suffering Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. “Like Krist, I’m a lot bigger than [singer/songwriter/guitarist Craig Nicholls],” he says. “I’m a protector as well as a friend and bandmate. It’s quite similar the way the band started. Kurt never had a job, same as Craig. Krist was always working and paying for rehearsals, the way I did, and I’ve got to watch out for alcohol, like Krist did. I’m expecting a case of beer to be delivered as we speak.” Miami.com has since removed the article.
