Insightful 4 page interview with Farrar and his views on Son Volt, his solo material, and future musical career.
“The idea of doing solo records was supposed to be that it could be anything—samples, different instrumentation, etc. But with Son Volt, it just represents guys playing in a studio trying to capture the essence of the moment and then being able to take it on the road and have the same songs translate in a live context. With the solo stuff I never had the intention of taking the synthesizers on the road. I mean there’s something unique when you are playing with a group of people and there is a synergy involved. Something happens and it’s unexpected; it makes it all worthwhile. I maybe missed the unexpected.”
