ROUTES & BRANCHES
October 13, 2012
As luck would have it, Bow Thayer sent the following answers to the Departures questions, giving us a glimpse at the inspiration behind Thayer's own inspiring music.
Hometown: Hingham Massachusetts. A small coastal town between Cape Cod and Boston.
music as a youngster: Stones, Zep, Dead, Beatles, the Band…. not very
original but thats what I liked! Did not dig all the 80's stuff.
Your 5 favorite albums:
Miles Davis, Tribute to Jack Johnson
Marvin Pontiac, Legendary Marvin Pontiac
Frank Zappa, Apostrophe
Blitzen Trapper, Furr
Bob Dylan, Desire
Lyric you wish you had written: "I come from an abundance of inherited sadness" - Ryan Adams
Best concert you've seen: Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble, of which I was lucky enough to open for 6 of 'em. The one that sticks out the most is when Levon sang "The Weight" for the first time in almost 20 years. Not a dry eye in the place!
