Personal Quote:

[on the banjo as the 'flavour du jour'] I like it when it's good and I don't like it when it's bad. To me it doesn't feel like success to have crappy banjo on a crappy song. Just because it's widespread doesn't mean it's good. But there's a lot of real good playing going on, and that I find even more exciting. See more »
