He was better — it’s undeniable

I remember seeing you in the mid ‘90s outside of Brownies in New York, where Elliott Smith was opening up for you, and before the show you were standing outside telling everyone how much better he was than you.

“He was — it’s undeniable. Also I was jealous as fuck, that’s the other thing. I love Elliott Smith. He was a sweet man. I didn’t know him that well, but he loved karaoke, I know that. I went to karaoke with him. I’m terrified of karaoke. He’s completely fearless; he’d cover anything… He sang some disco hit!”
