B&L: What animal do you associate yourself with (given our ties to oxen)?
Elliott: I’d also be an Ox with my F250 truck, gettin’ where we need to go.
B&L: Why music? Why do you seek it? What keeps you inspired to keep at it after all these years?
Elliott: When I was a kid I thought that if I could play a guitar, and get to a truck stop, I could get a ride anywhere. It was true. I’ve taken a lot of rides since then and I’m still goin’ places.
B&L: What’s the making of a great show? What do you look or hope for as you step foot on that stage?

Elliott: “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright” – Bob Dylan.
B&L: If you could have a dozen of anything, what would that dozen of something be?
