The AP caught up with Fab Moretti recently, and it published an article about The Strokes’ drummer today.
You may already know many details of the article — that Fab created a sort of interactive exhibit outside Rag & Bone in NYC, featuring 24 statues which people are free to take. The demand has been much higher than he thought it would be, the short article says, and it talks about why this type of project has excited him.
Near the end, it says that Fab said The Strokes are working on new material — again, we’ve heard rumblings that they’re all individually writing — but it also seems like this project is currently much more exciting to him than making music.
“I hate to sound jaded, but everything else has become routine and a business — that’s what the music industry has become to me — and I have to remind myself that creating is a privilege. Art has fueled creativity with a newfound fervor,” he said.
