Really good interview. As expected, Rashawn helps him learn the music.

He only listened to the studio two step before playing it live! That’s crazy. Maybe getting him up to speed is impacting the sets more than I thought.

He seems to be having fun so hopefully he sticks around. I really like what he does on LITHOG, so glad that’s one of his favorites.

He said on instagram that he’s heard most of the songs with Butch but plays what Dave and Rashawn suggest usually.

I thought Buddy was good at the Denver shows. He's talented for sure and wasn't over the top or in the way.

Rashawn had an interview right after he started and if I recall correctly he said his favorite songs were Warehouse and The Last Stop. I wonder what he'd say now.

If that Last Stop thing is true, then he has far less say than we all joke about.

Love interviews like this with all the insight. Dave playing leader here, and rashawn helping as expected. This sounds like a big reason for non varied sets, along with it being an album year.

If you look on the almanac, they actually played Last Stop 10 times in 2006 after no plays since 2003. Could just be coincidence though.

Just because Rashawn likes songs doesnít mean theyíll get played. Itís still Daveís band at the end of the day. But this interview Definitley confirms how much control Dave give Rashawn.

Rashawn has probably became the guy with the most influence in songwriting.
He is in the band because there is a reason. I also think Leroi was a big fan of him and teached him a lot about the DMB and its songs.

I've to admit that I love when Rashawn plays the muted trumpet.
Hate him or not.. he is definitely a great musician.

With the addition of Buddy Strong (who is still learning the songs) I'm excited what the future will bring.

Rashawns role is more about coming up with horn lines for him and Jeff to play and guiding everyone else in the band. And he also got Buddy up to speed on everything. I don’t think he’s involved in that much songwriting, maybe some structural things and what not, but I haven’t seen any evidence of him actually getting writing credit.

I think Dave sees him as an extension of Leroi since they spent so much time together initially and taught him everything about the songs and the band. It’s as if Roi is still there kind of using Rashawn as a medium to speak to the band. Sometimes you can hear some Roi in Rashawns playing even though it’s an entirely different instrument—that same kind of sentiment is there at times.

well said.
"extension of Leroi" second that.
Sometimes we forget this guy has been in the band for 10 years now.
Amazing how time flies.
People forget that these sets are mostly like this because of Buddy learning the songs. Let's stick this guy a bit longer to the band and we'll see some great moments in the future. I'm sure.

Raven
LITHOG > AB Intro
Superstition

showed how this guy can influence the band. And with the friendship to Ross ... Ross takes a big part of the new energy.

Not sure Iíve seen this mentioned here. When they play the Buddy interview clip on SiriusXM, he speaks in reference to Black and Bluebird.

Buddy says he recorded his parts from his home - and the band sent him what he calls, a track that sounded finished - fully produced - and asked him to add his part.

Wonder if this at all plays into any theory about the album being done and scrubbing Boydís parts from it.

Found it.

What are your favorite songs, both to perform and to hear?

I love “Last Stop” because Roi and I, we’ve slipped a few new things in there and the horn arrangement is pretty kicking, so I love playing that. I love the new stuff that’s happening. I can’t say they’re a stretch because with a drummer like Carter nothing’s a stretch. I love “Break Free” because it’s just a pretty song. I love the songwriting. Dave is a genius when it comes to lyrics. My favorites of the new ones are “Break Free” and “Kill the King.” Of the old ones, “Last Stop,” “Warehouse” and “Nancies.”

Boyd?
Honesty. You gotta dig Boyd’s honesty. When BT plays something I feel it and I feel like he needs every note that he plays. I wish I could play with that kind of honesty. It is unreal. Every night he blows me away.

Longer interview here & Rashawn isn't bitter yet [Only registered users can see links.]

at the Boyd part. Might as well have said I love how openly terrible he is.
