SKF NOTE: The full back story on this interview is posted on my blog here.
Later, Jim Keltner called me from New Orleans where he was touring with Bob Dylan. Jim said James Black was one of the first persons he called when he was there. James attended the Dylan concert, then he and Jim stayed up until the wee hours talking drums.
James tended to give brief first answers to my questions. I would wait for James to finish his thought. Then I would ask for a more detailed answer.
