    Sultans is my #1 favorite guitar solo/riff song of all time, but I have always done the best I can with a pick and my humbucker guitar.

    Two memorable quotes from the interview that gave me pause and will serve me for a long time:

    "As a songwriter, you're looking at the world. When you think the world is looking at you, I think that's wrong."

    And on fame and music, "We wrongly thought it was important."

    I think a lot of people in music should hear those two thoughts.
