The good thing about playing the guitar: You can take on different kinds of music. I’m always doing something different from the last thing I did because I have the shortest attention span on earth.
What’s nice about being a producer is you get to roll the dice more often, and you get to be involved with lots of different kinds of music.
I don’t know whether you [musician] can be all things to everybody, which is why there are different kinds of music.
I have pretty ecumenical tastes. I’m interested in a lot of different kinds of music, so I don’t listen with a jaundiced ear to music because it’s in a certain category, whether it’s country or opera or hip-hop or bebop or whatever it is.
