Brian Williams, Cuz, the dweebs, nerds, geeks,
really think I'm going to ask you in depth questions about the film scoring process. So let me begin with Where do you get your inspiration?
John Williams, rolls eyes, This again. Where do you think. I listen to the masters of classical music, and then I pick and choose. I must be good at it because other than a few accusations of stealing the Planets, I've avoided most while crybaby is always being accused of stealing which of course is true, his stealing the enterprise is straight from Prokofiev. Course I stole from him too in several star wars sequel prequel scores.
Brian Williams, Doesn't that sound unethical?
John Williams, There are only so many notes, and therefore only so many combinations. Given time a bunch of monkeys banging on a keyboard could do what I do! Given enough time so could Hans Zimmer. okay, now that's probably not going to happen, but it's the carrot on the stick for Hans.
Brian Williams. Why do you only work with Steven Spielberg?
John Williams, Isn't it clear, he pays well and he's tone deaf.
Brian Williams, Isn't it true that my cousin and your son was in Toto?
John Willaims, yeah but it was after all the good stuff was done and if you hear him sing, it doesn't sound the same with him singing. He likes to think he got some of my talent, but in reality he just got my bald gene.
