Rolling Stone interview clip with Britt Daniel and Jim Eno:

Rolling Stone: What’s the most rock star thing you’ve ever done?

Britt Daniel: Ten years ago in Salt Lake City I jumped offstage and knocked somebody on his ass during a song. I was wondering why he was at the show because he kept giving me the middle finger. It was a pretty small show and there weren’t a lot of people there, and I was like, “Hey, nuh-uh,” and he just kept doing it song after song. Finally he did it again and off we went.

Jim Eno: Britt jumped offstage, hit him, and then the crowd attacked the guy and dragged him out. And the rhythm section kept playing.
