I’m sorry if this has been asked before, but I can’t find anything in my search.. I’ve listened to the WTF podcast interview you did a while back many times, and each time the lyric you mentioned sticks out, and strikes a heavy chord in me. “You were an evil man most of the time, but on our best days we were partners in crime”.
