 Brian likes food, with Al and Darian. And I'd like to go back at sit in the next booth over from Brian and Spector at Canter's, please.

Very enjoyable read!
A couple of funny things that caught my attention:
1. Al mentions that the Wilsons have to switch places at a restaurant because Murray and Brian were lefthanded!! Is that factual?
2. Brian telling a story about going out to dinner with Phil Spector and his curious comment about he and Phil “having a romance” (and Darian immediately asking “ a musical romance?”😄

I believe Carl was lefthanded. Don't know about Brian

Carl indeed wrote lefty (obviously played guitar right); Brian writes righty, throws a baseball lefty

Anybody seen any photos of Brian eating with a fork or spoon in his hand? Al could have been thinking about Carl, who definitely dined lefty-style.

Great reading, thanks! I'm impressed at Brian's memory... I'd have forgotten almost everything after all these years!

That was a terrific read! And as has been requested in the past, I wish there were more interviews like THIS. Call it shooting the bull, chewing the fat, whatever...it's those more free-flowing exchanges about various off-the-radar topics that I find fascinating. No talking about the usual 20 or so talking points that have been raised in how many dozens or hundreds of interviews in the past, not interviews where the discussion is as much about the interviewer as it is the subject and topics...just a nice discussion and conversation. I love that stuff.

I had a hypothetical list of BW interview topics and approaches I would really like to see before it's too late. The topic of food was not on there, but holy cow what a great idea and a great way to get a conversation flowing.

Kudos to those involved and thanks for posting!
