He’s confident about at least one more future career path: composer/lyricist of a Broadway musical.  “I will do a musical one day,” Folds admits.

Am I the only one who finds that to be exciting?

Thanks for the link!

Nice write-up.  Did he drop any hints of a BFF tour in the future?

‘Still’ [written for the 2006 film Over the Hedge].  Not the most popular song, never gets requested, no reason to put it on there other than that, at that time in my life, I think it’s the best that I did.

bullshit its never been requested ive been asking for it for over a year!
