Jonathan Richman doesn't do interviews for print media

Actually, sometimes he does — he just makes it awfully hard. This is a fake one.

SD: Who was your biggest musical influence? 
JR: You can look at the band and wonder where all that sound was comin' from with just four people there. Twangy sounds of the cheapest types, sounds as stark as black and white stripes. Bold and brash, sharp and rude, like the heat's turned off and you're low on food. How in the world were they makin' that sound? The Velvet Underground.
