- Wow, Don surprised
- Surprise is
actually a bit too strong of a word, I just
wasn't really thinking about it. I knew Don was a bass
player but the fact that he's that good, tells you
what's so true about Hollywood: we're all hiding
talent. Talents. Just so much. Nearly all of us and
those that don't? Are usually the assholes. Because,
let's just say you really ARE only known for some
shitty background gigs in movies as an actor. And
decades have passed... you're gonna hold onto that
HARD. And since you're insecure about your actual
skills? Your ego just fills in the holes.
- There's a reason
why Don and I are pretty laid back in person -
we're not insecure. There's a reason Don is down to
earth about the BTTF stuff: it's the least of his
skills. That wasn't his "peak" that was a thing he did
decades ago. Now, he's grateful as fuck because he
gets to do all sorts of cool shit because of it... but
man - you only need to hang with him a few times to
realize it's just not him. You don't always feel
- But yeah, Don can
play. And I could very well end up writing something
where I'd need him to sit-in which is also what I
think will make the whole project kind of interesting.
Showing different stories. I'm self-aware enough to
know exactly what I can do and what I can't do and the
song being the best is what matters. I can pull
off the "boring" stuff as Don put it, but if
I ever do something a bit more lively, he's
certainly the man for the gig.
- ...I am
annoyed that he'd be part of ANOTHER project
since he likes to rib me about riding his coattails...
- But the chemistry
is real. I'm no dummy.
