didn’t MacKaye have any real feeling of Fugazi’s place in history? “I’m not a nostalgic dude and I just don’t think about stuff like that. It’s just the work.” No matter how hard I pressed him for some shred of pride, I couldn’t feel it over the phone. “Some of the songs, you put a guitar in my hand and I would have no idea how to play them. With that kind of removal I can listen to the songs and think, ‘That’s a good song.’ It’s not me playing it, it’s just the guy in the recording.” It turns out Fugazi’s greatest legacy might be something that everyone involved in creating media could use a lot more of in 2014 — humility.
