Thank You Will Turpin (of Collective Soul)

Thanks so MUCH to  Will Turpin of Collective Soul for this wonderful comments in this current interview regarding the "dosage" tour and Anthony's  work on that album. 
 (More Thanks to Marshall Terrill, who is a celebrity biographer who has published 15 books.)

Q: What role did hit-making producer Anthony J. Resta have in the shaping of Dosage?
Turpin: His style is all over that record. For some reason the word “soundscaping” comes to mind. He’d create these incredible handcrafted and atmospheric keyboard sounds for the songs. For example, he created the introduction to “Tremble For My Beloved”. His forte was programming, building and manipulating sounds. He has an incredible ear for music and sounds, and in hindsight, we’ve done some of our best work with him.
Q: Dosage produced two mega-hits (“Heavy” and “Run”) but almost a decade later, “Tremble For My Beloved”, the album’s opening number, was featured on the Twilight soundtrack. What impact did that have on the band?
Turpin: It gave us a huge shot in the arm. Soundtracks have a way of perpetuating the life of the song and when you’re involved with something as popular as Twilight, it opens up a lot of new territory. Stephenie Meyer, who is the author of the Twilight books, is a big fan of Collective Soul and she handpicked every song on the entire first soundtrack. We’ve been fortunate in our career to have those moments. “Run” was on the Varsity Blues soundtrack and “She Said” was on the Scream 2 soundtrack. Soundtracks widen your exposure to people who might not normally pay attention to your music. I can look back on my youth and the soundtrack for Singles played a very big role in my life. It was just as popular as any Alice in Chains or Pearl Jam record and exposed me to a lot of great music. Twilight has exposed us to a new generation of fans. I remember seeing a lot of young kids one of our shows after the movie came out and they knew “Hollywood” and “Tremble For My Beloved”. Then when we’d play something older like “December” or “Shine” you could almost read their lips: “I didn’t know they played that song?” It was almost verbatim every night there for a while. It’s great. We’ve been around for almost two decades but with certain generations, there are dots that need to be connected and those soundtracks are invaluable.
