Have you ever met anyone whose music you really admire?
I assume you mean in person....hmmm, that's hard to say. Nothing comes to mind, but I'm really bad about that sort of thing. I did mean a great singer/songwriter named Natalia Zuckerman once in Chicago, I think she's really great; and a few months later I briefly met Melissa Ferrick who I also really admire.
Other than that, I do often truly admire the people who I play shows with in various cities around the U.S. and Europe; they are really great, hard-working folks and I admire their drive and passion.
