"Dean is a session player in L.A. He's played on Steely Dan albums and is probably the most recorded guitar player around town. He's played on everyone's records. He has a brilliant mind. To me, guitar playing isn't all about the shredder who can play you 80,000 notes; it's the guy who can play a succinct part with four notes that will be more memorable than the 400 the guy with the whammy bar just played you. His versatility in what he can do is, to me, the most impressive thing."
