I'd like to share with you now, a portion of a letter that I received from Buddy dated 6-15-94.
...
As you can see, Buddy is brutally honest and truthful when it comes to discussing aspects of the music "business. Consider this a disclaimer, Buddy sometimes uses strong language to get his point across.
...
Buddy- My mother graduated grade ten piano, but considered the experience "forced" and chose to forget all about it. She refuses to dwell on the memory even today. She never plays.
...
Buddy- I was born (in 1946) & raised to adolescence in Toronto, Canada. I've been in the United States, off and on, since about 1947; permanently since '68.
...
Buddy- James Brown, Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, Sandy Denny, Joni Mitchell, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Joe Walsh, Freddie King, Steve Cropper, Sam & Dave, most Stax/Volt stuff, Oscar Peterson, Diz, Miles, Brubeck, slow (morning) ragas, Uillean (Irish bagpipes) pipes (dirges, preferably), Scottish pipes playing funereal, death themes only (!) are among my passions.
...
Buddy- I took Hawaiian guitar lessons from a guy, (a Canadian player by the name of Ken Near) starting at about 11 years of age.
...
Buddy- Oh yes, indeed!
...
Buddy- An astute observation on your part.
...
Buddy- The Grateful Dead began NRPS, all due to Jerry Garcia's love for pedal steel.
...
Buddy- I have no preference as all have their own charms. Or at least the potential.
...
Buddy- My current setup is almost exactly what it was 20 years ago.
...
Buddy- Don't know the players working today.
...
Buddy- Um.
...
Buddy- Highlight? Highlights!!!! In the plural, please!
...
Buddy- There are many with different styles employed.
...
Buddy- None. Amusing?
...
Buddy- Ah yes.
...
Buddy- I play mostly sessions, some appearances.
...
Buddy- Scotty had been trying to get me to do an album for his label for many years.
...
Buddy- I have little reference to anything happening in Austin, except that at that time in my life, it sounded like a feasible alternative place to stay drunk.
...
Buddy- No.
...
Buddy- Women. And women.
...
Buddy- Volume pedal technique.
