I have never heard Rick so at ease in an interview. Your music knowledge and overlaps made for a lot of fun points in the conversation. Thank you for this!

this would had been great, if Robert could talk and answer the question. you don't have to repeat the same question over and over and know why you're asking the question. and answer for hus brother. let him tell the story.. too long, explaining the question. hell, i forgot the question sometimes.. surprised you don't know this.
