Talk:Bill Krauss

From This Might Be A Wiki

I know that he and TMBG no longer work together (at least, that's what the article seems to imply), but I'm just wondering if there's any animosity between him and the Johns, or if they just decided it was time to part ways. Does anyone know the answer to that? ~Anna Ng hears your words. 14:02, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

I never saw any bit of resentment on either side (well, besides Absolutely Bill's Mood), and always saw it as pretty good relationship, and I got the feeling that it was he who set them more strongly in the direction of the little tinkerings they like(d) to do. He was called the Third Giant, right? Also, I'm guessing (purely guessing) that his leaving had more to do with the fact that professionally, he was not in the band and he was a sound dude/producer, and so decided to eventually get on with other projects and do other things that interested him. ~ magbatz 19:33, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

I've often wondered why he left and the circumstances around it. It's never been directly discussed as far as I know. (Mr Tuck)

Wasn't it as simple as they moved to Electra which had its own sound recording/production team? Perhaps someone needs to ask Bill himself? I don't think there seems to be any animosity. (Dr Raygun).

The July podcast Don't Let's Start gives an amazingly in-depth interview with Krauss. He deftly avoids discussing the reasons for his departure from the band in anything other than general terms. I probably enjoyed this interview more than the last couple of TMBG albums. Definitely worth listening too. An incredibly articulate man and we get a real insight on 80s They Might Be Giants. (Mr Tuck)

Following listening to the interview I looked up Bill on this wiki. There was his website complete with his email. I sent a fan letter, where I thanked him from the heart for all of his work. I got a charming reply. The temptation to email him again with a list of questions on the Giants is great...but I will resist it. (Mr Tuck)

That's some impressive willpower! I'm sure he honestly appreciates that. :-) --MisterMe (talk) 23:38, 9 September 2019 (EDT)
