I asked Elliott to open for Sebadoh

“I asked Elliott to open for Sebadoh. Our audience was very rude to him. People were not even listening to his songs. I remember that the bar of the venue we were playing made its peak sales during his set. Poor Elliott. The most disgusting thing is how, two or three years later, the same people who had been ignoring him started to idolize him. His songs had not changed. Elliott was very aware of that irony. Sometimes it made him laugh, sometimes it depressed him completely.”
