Q: I'd like to know about the cover of your forthcoming album, the one with "Subterranean Homesick Blues" on it. I'd like to know about the meaning of the photograph with you wearing the Triumph t-shirt.
A: I haven't really looked at it that much. It was just taken one day when I was sitting on the steps, you know. I don't really remember too much about it.
Q: Do you think of yourself more as a singer or a poet?
A: I think of myself more as a song and dance man, you know.
Q: You were quoted in the Chicago Daily News as saying that when you're really wasted you may enter into another field. How wasted is "really wasted" and do you foresee it?
A: No, I don't foresee it, but it's more or less a ruthless type of feeling, very ruthless and intoxicated to some degree.
Q: The criticism that you've received for more or less leaving folk music for folk rock hasn't seemed to bother you very much. Do you think you'll stick with folk rock or are you going on into more writing?
Q: What would you call your music?
A: I don't play folk rock.
A: I would call it, um, I like to think of it more in terms of Vision Music, it's a mathematical music.
