“Any good rock ‘n’ roll song…” (Interview, 08/30/14)

“…We don’t need the songs that most people know as a way of opening the door to the question of why we’re so moved by this music.

But the whole argument is that any good rock ‘n’ roll song can tell the story of rock ‘n’ roll…”

– GM on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” Aug. 30. Available as a podcast or in print
