Why no I haven’t, but on the bright side, over 300 thousand followers are now aware that you are very well read.
Great question. The answer is that fundamentally, humans aren’t meant to travel like musicians do. At the core of it, it goes against the way people like to live, in communities, with rituals, with family. I think it’s a really difficult balance to strike between traveling for a living and making sure that you can get home and keep a normal life going. I’ve been saying lately, people only OD in hotel rooms. You never heard of someone ODing in a rental house in Hawaii, or on a couch by their dog.
I’ve never tried to deliberately make a name for myself in the hip hop world. I just think that more than any other genre right now, hip hop is the most “open source,” musically. I can play blues over hip hop better and easier than I could over almost any pop music. Some of the most fun I’ve ever had playing guitar has been on hip hop sessions. I can give you a few reasons why hip hop and the Grateful Dead have a lot in common.
