havent historically been that jammy. Which isnt to say that we dont have an occasional six-minute number -- we do. But having said that, I have a great respect for that audience, which I think is just a music-loving audience. You know, one year I got invited to the Jammies at Carnegie Hall, and I got in a discussion with somebody: Well, how do you define a jam band? And he told me, A jam band doesnt repeat a song for three shows in a row. That was the only way that he would define it. I could almost follow that rule, except there are probably four songs I have to play every night. So I guess those four songs are whats keeping us from ever being a jam band, he laughs. Whats clear is that Big Head Todd is one multi-headed rock monster, easily traversing the most accessible hooks and the heaviest grooves. Its not surprising that they would appeal to any audience or sub-audience that values durability over flavors of the moment. But Mohr has to laugh when he thinks about how little the possibility of long-term perseverance was on the members minds 30 years ago. When you form, I think your goal is to make it through the party on Saturday night, he points out. In art, longevity isnt the goal. Its a happy accident if it happens, and I think ours was one of those convenient accidents that led to a happy marriage. But we happen to get along really well and love being with each other and playing music for a living. Simple as it may sound, thats a profound recipe for endurance in both the old world and the new.
