My friend Fred Grittner found this article and forwarded it to me. It’s a very revealing look at John and his attitudes toward songwriting and, in particular, the Bombs Away Dream Babies era of his music. John didn’t like to analyze his songs so it’s particularly interesting to hear his thoughts on this period of his career. This is a .pdf file and should download and open in either Adobe Reader or Preview.
Thanks, Fred, for sending it along.
