When you’re onstage with an electric band going through a massive P.A. system, it’s very artificial. You can’t really hear your own voice as it comes out of your mouth.

Some of the best trades come when everyone gets very panicky. The crowd can often act very stupidly in the markets. You can picture price fluctuations around an equilibrium level as a rubber band being stretched — if it gets pulled too far, eventually it will snap back. As a short-term trader, I try to wait until the rubber band is stretched to its extreme point.

See, I never wrote arrangements for the band for Judy Garland; I did strictly special material, special lyrics, put together all of her medleys.

It’s more egalitarian on the Internet – anyone can put anything up. But in terms of the money it takes to allow a band to get good, there’s less of it to invest.

I get a chance to see new bands and new music. I’ve seen a lot of amazing local bands, bands that I think ‘have what it takes’, that they could become the next big thing. More often than not it doesn’t happen.

It costs lots of money to make records. It costs lots of money to generate artwork and manufacture and then ship things to people. If it keeps getting stolen, then the band has less ability to come to your town and perform. And that is ultimately what all of us want to do.

It was pretty common to form bands that only lasted a few years. Slint was my favorite band that I was in at the time, and I didn’t realize that I was bummed out about it until quite a while later.

Most people found out about Slint in the mid or late 90s, but we were an ’80s band. We started in 1986 and broke up at the end of 1990.

I was in every band class I could get in, like after school jazz band and marching band, and that’s where I really learned to read music from elementary all the way through junior high and high school.

I took a private lesson, but it didn’t really work out, so I went back to playing along with records. That’s really the thing that got me into playing a lot – getting excited about playing along with my favorite bands like Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.

People who come up to me are drummers or fans of the band. I don’t get it too much, but I’ll be somewhere and someone will have me take a picture or something.
