It seems like people in your family must have missed that you were such an amazing musician, otherwise you might have been pushed into a total classical world. You were picking up all these classical songs off the radio by ear, and if you’d done that in my family, my mom would have made you go to conservatory and really push it. You have such a natural thing.

He [Alvino Rey] was 95. I would speak to him on the phone, and there was no difference between him and any 20 year old. He was cooler than anyone I knew.

That night, in Butler’s apartment, the pair wrote “Headlights Look like Diamonds,” which would eventually appear on Arcade Fire’s debut EP. Perhaps not a terribly romantic tune, but when was the last time you composed a song on a first date?

Arcade Fire’s aggressive stance on stage suggests one thing, and one thing only — get on board with us. Now. It’s not a question, it’s a statement. “We’re taking you with us; you’re going where we go.” You’re captive. You’re coming.
