Phil Spector is a guy who I'd never want to meet, but there is no denying the contribution he made to music. He got it in a way that very few ever did, and if, on occasion, he made it more about himself than about the artists he was working with, well, that's understandable.
There's just certain people that just don't have it. Moby Grape will never be a contribution. There are a lot of groups that will never be a contribution. 'Cause if you listen to just one Muddy Waters record you've heard everything Moby Grape's gonna ever do. Or if you listen to one Jimmy Reed record you've heard everything they may want to doIt's sad that he is as mad as a March Hare, but it changes nothing.
