Hi Danny! I'm a big fan of your music and overall vibe. I recently introduced my buds to pizza box and they have been just as blown away as me! haha. In all your years of traveling and playing music, what is the funniest or strangest thing you've seen on the road?
well i seen a guy get shot, it didn't kill him it just winged him, though..i suppose that's not really funny or strange. one time at the alamo lounge in austin in about 1983 i got a peyote button in the tip jar. that was the world's slowest load out. i don't know just lots of funny little things nothing really epic. when you are around a fair amount of cash and drugs and alcohol, i suppose some kind of strange things happen, but then, they happen and they aren't strange no more. i could write a book but it would be really long and would have no point. one time i was on a commercial jet that we thought was crashing, the pilot everyone thought we were going down with no landing gear. my friend had on a pair of headphones and was oblivious. as the stewardess passed by one more time for her final check and the whole plane was in crash position and we are all scared to death...my friend takes his headphones off and asks her "excuse me miss can i get some more of them peanuts?"
the bandcamp app is working out really well for me both as a way to buy and listen to your music. do you plan to get the rest of your catalog available there? i would re-buy your stuff i already have just to get it all in the same place. also just an idea, but some of that live stuff from the archive.org would be cool to have on that app (and cool to send you some money for how much i listen to those shows). thank you so much for all you do, your art has had the most profound and positive effect on my life.Danny Barnes responded on 09/03/2014 Next question
