-We got a lot of history here.
-[ Laughs ] -We have a lot
of history here, man. -Hey, look at this.
[ Cheers and applause ] -We got a lot —
-Lot of history. -We’ve got a lot
of history here. -A lot of history.
-A lot of fun times, dude. Oh, my God.
-How are you? -That one interview,
I can’t even talk about. -More people stop me in
the street for that interview. They’re like, “Man, that
Elephant Man interview!” -[ Laughs ]
-Dude, that was — -Do you guys
remember that at all? [ Cheers ] -I won’t do it this time.
-No, no, no. We’re fine. We’re over that.
[ Both laugh ] -Oh, my gosh!
Don’t start again. -We don’t have the hats,
so we’re fine. -I know, I know. All right.
But that was like — -That was crazy.
-A 25-minute interview. -That was crazy.
-That was absolutely crazy. -And my favorite thing
is that you aired it. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah, we did! The full 25 minutes. We didn’t take
anything out of it at all. No, I love it. I got to —
The last time you were here, though, was a while ago, man.
I miss you. -It was — yeah, yeah. I’ve been doing nothing
but this movie. -Yeah.
-Yeah, I think the last promotional thing
I ever did was here with you. I think it was three years ago. -You did —
You did a thing where — ‘Cause you said the only
music talent you really have is that you can play air guitar,
and then… -That’s right.
-…you went off, and we put these crazy wigs on. You wanted me to play…
-“Down By the River.” -“Down By the River,”
Neil Young. Actually, I have a photo of you.
This is January 2015. -That was a do —
that was a do-or-die moment. That was — -That was a do-or-die moment,
and you nailed it. -Thank you.
-You were fantastic. And then, I see this movie. Last night I saw it. You’re playing guitar,
you’re singing — I mean, you’re playing piano. -You know, I got to tell you,
quite honestly, remember when we were coming on, we always trying
to find something to do. -Yeah.
-It was kind of like a test run, I swear to God, to see if, like, if I didn’t look ridiculous
even though it’s air-guitaring to see if it —
-Playing the guitar? -I swear to God.
-Really? -Yeah, just thought,
“Let me just see…” ’cause that looked so ridiculous
that I wouldn’t — you know,
I won’t even try to do it. And it was kind of like
a little test. -Oh, ’cause it worked here?
-Yeah, it kind of worked. -“Oh, I can direct a movie”?
-Not direct a movie, but like — [ Laughter ] Not direct a movie, but, like, do you even believe that it
could even be in the world? -How did you get so good? -I mean, I just —
I haven’t seen you. That’s all I’ve been doing.
-Really? -Yeah, yeah.
-You learned to play guitar? -But I say — that’s — So there’s no trickery
with the camera, but I dubbed over
Lukas Nelson’s sound. So what you’re hearing
is Lukas Nelson’s guitar, who’s the sickest —
“Promise of the Real.” You know,
he’s Willie Nelson’s son. -Yeah.
-He’s incredible. But that’s all me.
Yeah, I learned all the — -You’re raging out, and — And you’re playing
in front of real crowds. -Yeah, we jumped on Stagecoach. Jamey Johnson let us come on
right before Willie Nelson, and then, we went
to Glastonbury. Yeah, that was insane.
It was insane. -Could people hear
what you were doing? -No. God no.
[ Laughter ] -“Hell no.
We didn’t plug anything in.” The first five rows — We couldn’t play it
through the P.A. system because of the music.
All the music’s original. So the music
couldn’t get out there. But it was playing
through the monitors. So, about five rows out,
they could hear us. But then like, you know,
20 rows out, they couldn’t. So it was —
-Did they know it was you? -I think it happened
so fast, Jimmy. Like, we had five minutes. You know, we had eight minutes
at Stagecoach, and we had four minutes
at Glastonbury. -What if
people started booing you? -That would be a problem.
[ Laughter ] You know,
I thought about that, though. ‘Cause, you know, you’re like —
you got to think about it. -What if they
throw something at you? -Well, the guy’s career
really takes a tumble fast. -Yeah.
-But I didn’t know. You know, you’re in England. I don’t know if they’re
gonna throw bottles. I have no idea
what’s gonna happen. -Let’s set up the movie,
for anyone who doesn’t know “A Star is Born.”
-Yeah, I mean it’s — I mean, it’s a property
that’s been around. But, really,
the movie that we tried to make is a movie about love. What happens if two people
actually really love each other and how hard it is to endure
even with that love. And it’s about
finding your voice, about finding something to say
in this world that’s — You know, it’s hard. People are gonna tell
who you you are, what you’re supposed to say. I mean, I think
we’ve all been through that. And how you can have
more courage to do that if you have the support
of people around you and love. So it’s really, you know — I mean, it sounds cheesy,
but it’s just a call for, you know, how important love is.
