Q – Purely a FYI–Chris Collingwood of Fountains of Wayne is interviewed in the new issue of American Songwriter, and he goes on at length about how envious he is of your golf game. So, you guys ever talk songwriting on the links?

A – We often talk about it. He likes Squeeze and I like the Velvet Underground, it’s amazing that we’re friends really.. Golf wise – he has the most negative attitude I’ve ever encountered. We have fun.
