"Do you get immune to luxury over time?" I ask him. I wonder this because we're having the type of exclusive experience that I imagine he's used to.
"I'm immune to everything," he says.
"Oh fuck, that's not true," I reply.
"I'm jaded," he says. "Over time you lower your expectations, if you have any."
I didn't want to believe it was true, but I got used to sitting six rows from half-court about 20 minutes in. I don't think he's ungrateful for the money, success, and fans from over 20+ years of being in a band, but I guess you can become jaded to anything. Not me, though!
I tell him I saw a picture of Seinfeld's kids sitting courtside at a Knicks game looking like they were watching a Netflix documentary on paint drying. I was incredulous. He countered that his young daughter once fell asleep at the Grammys. Kids these days!
