Personal Quote:

Neil Young and Paul Simon can go out with just a guitar, and you almost don't miss what you heard on the record. I like to be supported by musicians around me; it gives it a collective sound.

Trivia:

Kay suffers from increased sensitivity to light, so he wears his trademark sunglasses. He also has congenital achromatopsia (complete colorblindness), a defect of the cone cells in the eyes which causes him to see in black and white, and results in legal blindness. Despite this condition, he is an avid videographer. See more »
