Jon, I remember you once talking about how all those old performers we loved like The Beatles would have jumped at the chance to be more perfect, yet we embrace the imperfection. I agree it's a disconnect between the band and some of its fans.

Yet ... I love raw music. Not saying I enjoy it more than super-polished music but it's different and has its own appeal.

Is it always better to speak well? Yes - if there's interesting content and/or sincerity. But I prefer real and gormless people any day over slick and shallow ones. Same with music.
