Paste Magazine starts the February 2009 feature story “Object
of Their Affection” by recalling the 2006 Golden Globe speech of
novelist Larry McMurtry (Brokeback Mountain):
“Instead of acknowledging the usual suspects—mom, dad, husband, wife, agent, stylist, Jesus, etc.—McMurtry made the following statement: ‘Most heartfelt, I thank my typewriter. My typewriter is a Hermes 3000, surely one of the noblest instruments of European genius.’"
Following this theme the story goes on to feature musicians and the loves of their lives – their favorite instruments.
Although Ani has a virtual army of guitars, she tells us about one of her favorites named "Smoky"—a gift from our very own fearless leader, Scot Fisher.
