OTHER THINGS IN THE WORLD THAN MUSIC > Everything and Nothing

Insights from Daniel Lanois

LNerell:
I saw this video last week, it is interesting. Funny though is I just started reading his book Soul Mining in which he covers a lot of similar ground with more detail and of course a whole lot more too. Anyone heard of the guy who interviewed him before? I suspect he is some hiphop producer because of Daniel's one reference about the killer bass to him.

Sounds like the Opal records tour, we had something similar in LA, but in the larger Japan/American Theater with Budd, Roger Eno, Laraaji, Hugo Largo and the highlight of the two day event being Carl Stone interviewing Brian Eno. Interesting event, but I never understood why Hugo Largo was so highly thought of at the time.

drone on:
Exactly!  Never understood how Hugo Largo fit in with Opal, but I assume Eno was enamored with them for some reason....

Yes, he's Pharrell Williams and though I don't know his work well, he was in a band called N.E.R.D. and he did sing in a couple songs on the new Daft Punk album.  I guess he does produce music too, but it's mostly pop and rap (he's in that crazy huge song by Robin Thicke right now).  The only thing I like is his Daft Punk appearance as it fits well and his voice is similar to the singing on their other vocal-heavy album called Discovery.
