I wonder if the title came across as being sarcastic and iconoclastic. I was being neither. It was kind of to encourage any newcomers that wondered who CLA is, here, check out this interview. It's quite interesting and you may find something there that might inspire you to ask him a question.
Like the song from '64 goes, "I should've known better....".
It really does look like you pissed him off, lol. Your question about obviousness of songs was one of the best asked, imo - and the other one could've been answered in one word if he didn't feel like elaborating. Way to go, grimtraveller
