If you could add anyone, alive or dead to your team, who would it be?
Fernando Valenzuela. I saw his first MLB pitch, Dodger Stadium.
Oh, maybe Van Dyke Parks.
And Gena Rowlands
Carol Kay, duh
Gordon Willis; my current landlord was a gaffer back in the day, gaffed for him at one point, had to rent the house, starstruck
Bridget St. John: she’s kind of on my team, on my record, but I want to make sure she stays there. She’s a transcendentally beautiful musician. And a beautiful person.
