Quote for the Day

Joshua Rifkin, kazoo player for the Even Dozen Jug Band, an early-Sixties group that also featured David Grisman, John Sebastian and Maria Muldaur:

"It's a very heady thing when you're nineteen. We had all these expectations of great success, fame and fortune. We were going to conquer the world. I might say in parentheses that none of us had really paid much attention to these reports coming from Britain about something called the Beatles. Jug band music was supposed to be the next great thing. So it was a marvelous summer."
