"Nels Cline is a brilliant person, a fantastic composer and a really great guitarist. He's a member of Wilco, but that isn't how I first came to know him. I actually heard about him years ago, before he joined Wilco, from my friend Wayne Kramer. A record of Nels’ that I’m in love with is one called Coward. This is music that you can lose yourself in.
“What I didn’t know until just about five minutes ago is that this record is Nels’ tribute to another guitar player named Rod Poole, who was murdered by some asshole. The title refers to the murderer.
“Strangely enough, I didn’t know any of that the whole time I’ve been listening to it. I’ve played tracks from it on my radio show for the past couple of years, completely unaware of the backstory. But the record is fantastic; it’s just a beautiful outpouring of emotion. Anybody who loves electric guitar music will dig it.”
