“I learned from Michael McCarty how to cook…He was one of the first new wave chefs when the food explosion in California started in the 70s when everything changed from hippie food to a high knowledge of cuisine…I became friends with Michael; he taught me about wine and how to cook. The rest of my knowledge came from touring. Especially in Europe- when traveling through Italy and Spain, it was a mind-blowing transformation. You start eating stuff you were never exposed to.” -Devo bassist and big L.A. foodie Gerald Casale on his conversion from a diet made of “American junk food.” [Epicurean Musician]
