Yeah...EXCELLENT! I agree with you Joannah...definitely down to earth man was Stan:) You can hear the heart of a person through their music, but i love reading pieces as such, because it is the personality and the life that shines through these personal down to the core interviews, making the music that much more meaningful and moving...Home run again Tim...good on ya(-;o
I didn't find that to be at all "rambleing on" Tim. I found it to be very intuitive on your part as well as informative and most interesting. I love the fact that Stan says in this interview that he "mostly plays by ear." I believe when you do so, there is an improvisation of sound impression that an artist projects. It is the feeling and the passion within that is almost of a healing nature in some instances. There is no set format to follow, leaving the artist to his own emotion expressed....much like that of an abstract painting, only the color is tones of sound. Maybe I am rambleing on......or finding it hard to project what my inner thoughts are here. I do know that through all the forums posted here by everyone, I have a whole new debth of appreciation for Stans music that was already deep seated. I listen not only with my ears but with my heart, and feel the life that is portrayed through such incredible sound from an amazing man/musician/mind.
