Drive-By Truckers was one Cam & I both were responsible for. They’re such a big, dense, dark and smart rock ’n’ roll band. I’d known Patterson [Hood, ’Truckers front man] for years, just from hanging around Athens, Ga. In fact, Jack Logan was the first person who told me about DBT. I think they’re destined for something big. We’re just finishing their new album, to be entitled A Blessing And A Curse, their third one for us, and it’s unquestionably their best yet.
