Making records

“That’s an interesting thing that you just said, about like, there may be better guitar players, etcetera. That’s not what records are about, to me. Records are about that part of it, but it’s also the lyric, it’s the feel, the sound, it’s all sorts of components. Not every great musician makes great records, so to speak. Artists make records, it’s an art form, and there’s a mystery to it. And that combination, that right combination of the people, and the song, etcetera, there’s a magic that happens. It’s something that you just can’t figure out. If there was a one way to make a record, we’d all be doing it. That’s ever changing.”
