Joey Santiago Scores "Weeds"

According to, Joey Santiago is doing the music for a new Showtime comedy called "Weeds." Here's the story:

Weeds is about a typical suburban family from Agrestic, California. The show stars Mary-Louise Parker as recently widowed Nancy Botwin, Elizabeth Perkins and Kevin Nealon. "This is a lot of fun and something I can continue to do when I'll embarrass my kids by being on stage," joked Santiago. "Scoring a TV series is a lot different than playing in a band, the pace and deadlines are completely different, but once you get into the groove, it's really great."
Santiago is rarely mentioned in the "greatest guitarists ever" conversation, but I think he belongs there. Now if only that conversation weren't so idiotic.
