What are your favorite records and musicians? Why?
So many… not enough ink.
We know in 1991 you recorded as secessionist musician in Kryptonita album by Miguel Mateos. How do you know him?
He was in LA to do the record, he asked me to co produce, but he didn’t need me, he was very capable… and his brother was there and he is a VERY good drummer. . so i really didn’t do much, just helped find studios and engineers and maybe played a little drums or percussion.
