A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO MUSIC


A recent interview in the New Hampshire Daily Gazette with former NRBQ guitarist/songwriter Big Al Anderson contained this little gem:
Anderson grew up in Windsor, Conn., and now he lives most of the year in Santa Fe, N.M., with his wife and two dogs. He travels to Nashville, Tenn., to write and pitch songs, but when he is in Santa Fe he isn't part of a music scene. 'It's good to be in a place where there is no music when I'm done with makin' it,' said Anderson.
Aw, come on, Big Al, it's not that bad! (At least nobody can accuse him of sucking up to get a seat on the New Mexcio Music Commission.)
