– Thanks a lot for agreeing to give us an interview.
Thanks to all of you for your interest in Rime and the team.

A friend and a buddy… Well, and it was a great honor that he came to us with such great respect. When we met in San Francisco we were surprised at how friendly and humble he is. Being fans of his work, you can imagine how we felt (after the initial shock and astonishment)
