    No.

    What's the last album you bought, whether hard copy or download? Mine was Modern Country by William Tyler as a download.

    I bought an album called The Church Restaurant Official Soundtrack by a rapper named Danny Lover.

    If you had to play an instrument that isn't common in rock/country what would it be?

    It's hard to pick a favorite. If I went with Pink Floyd, zero times. Among my favorites that I've seen multiple times. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds at least 5 and The Melvins at least 7.

    Do you own pajamas?

    Yes I have a dog called Bruno. He's a Border Collie x Shih Tzu.

    Same question.

    Yes!
    Here they are, Arlene and Thomasina, guarding my Goodall acoustic in my messy bedroom.
    Do you live near a river?

    Yes. Our town is built near the convergence of two rivers, The Peel and the Cockburn (pronounced co-burn).

    Same question.

    Yes. Bellevue, Nebraska is the first settlement/city in the state, and the first west of the Missouri River. It started out as a trading post, basically, founded by French trappers. Bellevue,_Nebraska_log_cabin_from_W_3.jpg This cabin was built here in 1835, and was used as a residence until 1954. It is National Historic Site.

    Do you sometime wish you had been born in earlier times?

    Interesting question. I'd love to know next week's lotto numbers. Things like when/how I die, how my kids turn out. That's pretty heavy to have hanging over you. I guess it depends on, if in knowing the future, I could change it. Say you had the opportunity to know about the next 9/11 and you had a chance to prevent it. Of course you would, but it'd be a heck of a responsibility.

    What's your favorite song that uses sampling?

    Oh, there are so, so, so many.

    But if I had to choose, DJ Shadow's Stem/Long Stem/Transmission 2.

    I'm currently reading the brilliant 'Meet Me In The Bathroom', an oral history of the NY scene in the late '90s, early '00s. It suggests that The Strokes were the last great / important rock band. Were they? If they weren't, who were?

    I don't think so. There are two key things with a question like this: how do you define "rock"? And what makes a band great?

    For me, rock is a broad genre that covers a ton of ground... everything from Jerry Lee Lewis to Black Sabbath. And the best part is that rock is always evolving, which is why it hasn't died (just changed a lot).

    Second, as far as I can tell, the thing that makes a band a "great rock band" is their ability to revolutionize the genre, bringing a fresh sound or direction to the scene.

    With that said, I think you could easily argue that groups like Vulfpeck or Animals as Leaders are rock bands, and have changed the direction/face of the scene.

    I think most people get hung up on the idea of a great rock band being a mega group that plays stadiums. However, just because that's not the scene today doesn't mean there aren't innovators making great music founded in the rock we all know and love.

    Which genre has the most difficult to break into live scene?

    I'd say jazz.
    It's challenging to play, and has a comparatively small audience.
    Can you play any jazz standards, chord-melody style?

    On mandolin, yes. On guitar, sort of.

    How do you rate Glen Campbell as a guitarist?

    He was great!
    His rhythm playing was superlative, and often overlooked.
    Are you a good rhythm guitarist?

    I don't categorize my playing as rhythm/lead. Most of what I play has rhythmic and melodic elements.

    I think given time to learn a part, I'm decent. I'm pretty out of practice at the moment though.

    Do you listen to any non-Western/European music? What is your favorite?

    Alas, no.
    I must broaden my musical horizons.
    Have you ever played in a large musical aggregation (choir, orchestra, etc.)?
