Earlier this week, Billboard interviewed Cheech and Chong at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony after party. They were there to induct their record producer Lou Adler.
Cheech and Tommy weren't aware that Earache My Eye was being released today on limited edition 7 inch green vinyl as part of Record Store Day. They thought that was really cool.
Tommy said Lou Adler is like a great art collector. He keeps his record company tiny so he can pay attention to his artists. He picks his artists like an art collector would choose a painting. As a result, all the artists go to the top.
