An Exchange Between Barry Hannah And Wells Tower


BH: Kawasaki 1500. It’s the best bike I’ve ever owned. It’s just a joy. You want a beer?

WT: Sure. That’d be great.

BH: I got Miller in glass, and I got straight Bud in a glass.

WT: I’ll take the Bud.

BH: Sit here. It’s a good chair.

WT: Are you mostly working on the typewriter these days?

BH: Always. That’s all I use. Pencil, pen, and typewriter. I put a tin roof out here just for the rain.

WT: It’s a great sound. I wish you could get it on a white-noise machine.
