Britt Daniel Speaks the Truth

When you grow mighty tall, like Britt Daniel, people are bound to start taking swipes at your kneecaps. It’s all part of the rock & roll beast: Success spawns jealousy; jealousy inspires jealous people to talk trash. Or maybe jealousy has nothing to do with it. Either way, the water-cooler...…
