As our lunch wraps up (and I know Gould has a million projects to get to), I still have to ask about one last thing. I have to ask about the potential for Faith No More to release another album. Its the question on everyones lips, and I can tell Gould is a bit hesitant about saying anything about it. The last thing that this band needs is unwarranted pressure screwing up the flow and harmony of their reunion.
Hasnt been discussed, he says, so honestly that Im inclined to believe him. Its the elephant in the room. Its in everybodys mind but everyone is afraid to talk about it. Thats the reality. All I can do is offer my own opinion, and Im just 20% of the band. But my thing is, its like having a really great plate of food and throwing it on the ground.
He grins at that thought, and its apparent that even though he is just 20% of the band, its still an idea that excites him. Everything is great for doing it and if we did it, its going to be great. Its going to be because this is the best energy ever. And people have done a lot of other things since then that could bring a lot more to it than before. But thats my take on it. Ive got to let it go with that because if its meant to be, its meant to happen.
And with that, I let my interview go. Whatever the future holds for Mr. Gould and his bands, all we do know is that he has a legion of fans supporting him and a music industry thats about to get a swift kick in the ass.
