Albert Lee and I have become real close friends, and he comes out anytime I’m in the L.A. area, and he’ll sit in for the whole show ! … we’ve got a habit of doing that … in Austin Redd Volkaert does the same thing … it’s fun … I love to make it a guitar thing and the audience doesn’t know any different – they think he’s some new band member they don’t know. They don’t realize Albert’s the reason we all play Teles!.

She’s a yellow pair of running shoes, a holey pair of jeans. She looks great in cheap sunglasses, she looks great in anything. She’s, “I want a piece of chocolate cake; take me to a movie.” She’s a, “I can’t find a thing to wear.” Now and then she’s moody. She’s a Saturn with a sunroof with her brown hair blowing. She’s a warm conversation I wouldn’t miss for nothing. She’s a fighter when she’s mad and she’s a lover when she’s lovin’.

Unless you’re a true prodigy, you’re going to have to practice for a while being bad before you get any good. And it will seem like a waste of time. I remember that feeling well. But don’t worry about wasting time, because it’ll be so worth it. It’s my experience that in the end, life lessons and guitar lessons begin to blur in all sorts of interesting ways.
