Here's a quick lil' something so I'm not being a total

Once we settled in (about 10 mins in) I asked him about his songwriting process for some earlier songs (thank you to whoever recommended this!). He talked about the origins of I'll Back You Up (some new stuff I hadn't heard), Ants Marching (a story I had never heard, which was one of the coolest moments), Satellite (things I hadn't heard), along with some songwriting concepts that he's used quite a bit. My jaw nearly hit the floor when he reached for his guitar to play through some of the things he was talking about

Alrighty then, that should tide you over and I'll get the full write up out Monday night!

P.S. My instinct is being on the call will FAR exceed the experience of reading about it (obvs), so please keep expectations low. The shining light was of course my mother's presence, and Dave's genuine approach, candor, and realness. It kind of floored me, like there was this element of trust and he was incredibly forthcoming. So if expanding on anything I said above might violate that, please let me know (hi mods ).

What an amazing experience, bold was me, it's great that he was so down to Earth and willing to explain and show you his perspective as opposed to just giving short generic answers

    Very cool! Im jealous of your opportunity.

    I think its fair to say the quality of Dave's music has ebbed and flowed, but what's never changed is just how fucking cool of a dude he is. Just a class act, humble, funny, great guy.

    If there was no meeting he should at least come back and make up some fan fiction for us.

    Give the man a minute. Just because we are all bored AF doesn't mean he has nothing else going on in his life. If there's nothing by the end of the weeknd, then assume he's the GOAT of pandemic rickrolling.

    Its the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire Saga that Game of Thrones is based on by George RR Martin. He has been writing the book for a decade with no end in sight.

    I found the ebay posting for this lol... 11k is kinda wild but it goes to a good cause. I know it says only 30min and OP did say they talked for 30 min but I hope it was Dave who wrapped up the call and not you, OP. If anyone would be willing to stay on a little longer, I'm sure Dave would; he likes to talk and ramble lol. I've had the opportunity to interview a famous person over the phone once and it was scheduled to be a 30min call but it ended up being close to an hour. We were really hitting it off though so I kept it going; if I could tell they didn't want to keep talking, I would've wrapped it up.

    Who was it? You might as well share your story since it might be awhile until the OP shares his
