Melvins’ guitarist goes acoustic?
DAILY Music  July 25, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Buzz Osborne takes a sonic sidestep on Sunday at Red 7, leaving his trusty EGC axe and Sunn Beta amp head at home in favor of a Chinese Blueridge acoustic guitar. We sparred with the ever immodest Melvins mainstay about his solo tour and new LP, This Machine Kills Artists...."

30 Years of Melvins
Buzz Osborne & Co. almost matched that output these past two years
DAILY Music  August 9, 2013, by Tim Stegall

At one point, Osborne was approached by T-Bone Burnett, who said he desperately wanted to produce them...."

Melvins, Gwar, Goatwhore, and Star & Dagger plunge in
DAILY Music  October 27, 2013, by Michael Toland
"...The pioneering congregation, which seems to have invented grunge, slowcore, and stoner metal all at once, practically gave a seminar in the art of heavy. From slow and sludgy to quick and punky, the trio – guitarist Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover joined by Honky’s Jeff Pinkus – never faltered or fucked up, its sarcastic skronk pumping fresh air into the extreme metal-soaked atmosphere...."

Music Review  July 18, 2008, by Audra Schroeder
"...For a band that's spent most of its career playing largely the same riff faster and slower, the Melvins have made it work. After a few questionable efforts, 2006's (A) Senile Animal brought them to the brink of thud-rock catchiness, and Nude With Boots, their second effort with Big Business' Jared Warren and Coady Willis, continues to muscle up that foursome, the BBs proving the long-lost rhythm section to drummer Dale Crover and guitarist Buzz Osborne..."
