Westerberg on Craig Ferguson

Dressed as a rock 'n' roll Unabomber, Westerberg and His Only Friends (as he's calling this band) ripped through a version of "As Far As I Know" this past Monday evening.

Paul is currently on a short tour of the West and Midwest (including a Friday night performance in Kansas City that I will be attending). A two night stand in Los Angeles featured haphazard duets with Lucinda Williams, including this version of "Born For Me".
