AP: What’s your take on the music world right now?
DeGraw: Some of it’s good, most of it isn’t. For people who like the stuff that isn’t any good, babies need baby food, that’s just the way it is. If it’s aimed at a less-educated listener and they don’t mind having music dumbed-down for them, then that’s what they have. If they want to listen to ‘Sesame Street’ everyday of their lives, even if they’re adults, then they’ll get ‘Sesame Street,’ and that’s fine. They are allowed to have that, that’s just not what I’m into.
I was looking into why Gavin Degraw always wears a hat and the answer turns out to be “it’s a noble but unsuccessful attempt to keep the stupid thoughts that pollute his head from getting out”
