There's something about live players that you cannot get with machines: With live musicians, you can strike a groove, you can feed off each other... And, even though somebody might make a slight mistake, it's all real!
In certain ways I still feel like I'm finding my way. I feel pretty comfortable playing acoustic guitar and singing, but then I feel pretty good sitting on a reggae groove as well.
Yeah, I miss the Grateful Dead. I miss that groove. I miss the brotherhood. Absolutely. There's no doubt about it.
I really have shaken hands with where my voice is right now. I think it's got a little deeper; it's got some more grooves in it.
I don't dig staying in one groove.
I just love a slow groove. I feel so comfortable in it. But I listen to a lot of fast music, a lot of techno and house.

The Heads were the only band on that scene that had a groove.
You know, we had that groove; I didn't feel no way.
I am the 'Cosmic Dancer' who dances his way out of the womb and into the tomb on 'Electric Warrior.' I'm not frightened to get up there and groove about in front of six million people on TV because it doesn't look cool. That's the way I would do it at home.
There are so many artists who get to my age that get comfortable and just stick in a groove, and I really don't want to do that.
There's a certain groove you pick that makes the music flow, and when you have it it's in your pocket. It's the feeling behind the rhythm... to me, the hardest thing to strive for is that feeling, behind the groove.
Guitar solos bore the hell out of me. Only a few guitarists interest me, and it's not about the solos they play, it's about the grooves they create.
