“Jerry Harrison was a member of the Talking Heads, and he produced a couple of my records – I would’ve been remiss if I didn’t check out what he did. The Talking Heads don’t have anything to do with the blues, but one of the things that I really dig about this record is that it’s live, and it captures the band doing their thing well.
“I’m a fan of music that makes people want to dance. Everything that I do, I try to do with a serious groove. I love to look out and see people having a good time and the music making their bodies move. The Talking Heads were very well known for that.
“Again, the live aspect of the recording is very cool to me. The band had a lot of tricks that they would do in the studio, and they had a lot of layers to their songs, but they could pull it off live. A lot of bands can make good records, but they can’t make their music translate to the stage.
“I love the opening track, Psycho Killer. In fact, I play it a lot in my car. I have a pretty amazing stereo in one of my cars – it’s absolutely sick – and when I want to show it off to somebody, that’s the song I’ll put on. It sounds incredible.”
