Sometimes putting the band back together isn’t the best idea (see Guns & Roses’ Chinese Democracy). Sometimes industry pressures force musicians to take one last stab at fame, and admirers are disappointed to find the band’s flame flickered out like the last drops of fuel in a Bic lighter. Sometimes Stella can’t get her groove back. But sometimes, the Mousai throw the mortals a bone, and a band’s later efforts are a vehicle for years of musical growth and maturity (see Béla Fleck and the Flecktones’ Rocket Science).
For 2011’s Rocket Science, Fleck joined forces with the original Flecktones lineup of keyboard/harmonica player Howard Levy, percussionist Roy “FutureMan” Wooten, and bassist Victor Wooten. At Yonder Mountain String Band’s 2011 Harvest Festival, Béla and the Flecktones sat down with the Lions' Chronicle to discuss the new release, the current tour, and future plans for the band.
Can you imagine a world where there are no computers or printers to type and print your term papers? It would definitely be very time-consuming and difficult to write out everything by hand, and our fingers would ache. It is hard to imagine how it was in the early history of the world for people who wrote documents without the technology we have today. Even with the development of the printing press, the process was difficult and time consuming. While computers and printers are the technology of the present and future, UAFS is doing its part to preserve the past with classes on Letterpress printing.
