It's always hard to put your finger on what it is that makes Primus Primus.
Play as much as you can as often as you can with as many people as you can. That's how you learn and grow.
I enjoy my John Deere tractor quite a lot. It's a tool that I must use to keep Mother Nature at bay. I have all kinds of things encroaching on my property.
Comedians get jokes offered to them, rock stars get women and underwear thrown onstage, and I get guys that want to take me fishing.
I'm a big believer in spontaneity.
You can't watch 'Dr. Strangelove' with commercials. That would be sacrilegious.
I like to open new doors and blaze new trails through the jungle and all that whatnot. What keeps me goin' all these years is changin' it up.
Because nobody wanted to play bass, I was instantly in a band.
Daniel Day-Lewis is my favorite actor walking the planet right now. He never ceases to amaze me.
I liked the name Frog Brigade because it lent itself to a lot of cool imagery with the whole frog thing.
I've always said the bass just happens to be the crayon I picked out of the box. I'd still be drawing the same pictures... should I have picked trumpet or accordion or guitar, whatever it may be. The sounds in my head are still the same.
More than anything, I think the best thing you can do as an artist is just stay as true to yourself as possible and hope that your fan base will appreciate that.
As I've moved through life, I've found that I like things to be as casual and as spontaneous as possible when writing.
I think Phish will come back. I just think it's time for a breather.
To me, if you're going to talk about funk, you have to go back to George Clinton and Bernie Worrell. Those guys are the giants. I've played with Bernie, and it was unreal. He's the master.
