Wayne Coyne

Wayne Coyne, the quirky and brilliant leader of the experimental dream-pop band The Flaming Lips, dropped by KCRW for a memorable spin on The Open Road as Guest DJ with host Gary Calamar. Our topics of conversation included the 2002 tour with Beck, the band's past musical experiments, the influence of The Wizard of Oz, and how the music of Pink Floyd and Radiohead is a first step to understanding The Lips. Wayne played some of his favorite tunes and explained what one song (more than any other) he wished he had written. Hear our discussion of the state of affairs in the World of The Flaming Lips.
