You've talked at length about how you were inspired to write "The Humorist" for Mark Twain. Are there any other literary/historical figures you might pen a tune for?
Yes. I want to write a song for/about Steinbeck. I revisit Grapes of Wrath almost every year.
Have you ever considered doing a The Band cover? (Ophelia! Or Don't Do It! Or anything!) And is Brian aware of his uncanny resemblance to a devastatingly handsome Levon Helm, circa The Last Waltz?Ha Ha Tonka responded on 12/26/2011 Next question
I know eastern Kansas is where it's at but would you ever consider playing in western Kansas? Dodge City girls can get pretty rowdy...Ha Ha Tonka responded on 12/26/2011
