of the lamest interviews I have ever read in any magazine. Too timid to
challenge Byron on anything during the course of the interview, too
intimidated to state the obvious ("maybe some critics don't like you
because your records are like a series of merely adequate essays handed
in by a student who appears brilliant"), the interviewer allowed Byron
to rant against -- whom? An American music press who praise him as a
jazz genius and revolutionary and ignore folks like William Parker? A
British music press who ignore him utterly? The milquetoast interviewer
himself, who barely uttered a word (if we are to judge by the article as
it appeared in the WIRE)?
Yeah, I look forward to reading that.
