So it's been tremendous — the whole experience, the whole 43 years, even the 10-year hiatus, while we weren't playing together. I probably saw Bruce during that time period more than I ever did, before or after. He was very available to everybody and was very conscious of maintaining the ties with everybody, even though we weren't actively playing together.

You'd see him in what context?

I'd stay at his house. I probably stayed at his house probably every six weeks in L.A. — I was looking for work. He'd let me stay in his guest house, and we'd go to dinner, go for long drives. My sense, looking back on that period now, is that he was very concerned about everybody.

In what way?

Well, concerned both about our reaction to his deciding to go it alone and what everybody would do, how everybody would cope. At the time it felt very disconnecting, but all these years later, I realize he was very concerned about us as individuals, as people.

I've never heard about that. That's fascinating. 

Thanks for linking!
