From The Interview"The doctor says there are signs of Alzheimerís, itís not bad yet but will get worse." he told BBC 6 Music, "How can I not remember songs I wrote? Itís frustrating."

"The most embarrassing thing was when we were getting ready to announce Damon and I can't remember his last name," he continued, "That's so embarrassing."

Luckily everybody was safe, the same canít be said for everybodyís homes or belongings. I obviously canít help everybody, but with your help we can help get people the food and supplies they need to get through the day. For the next week we will be donating all proceeds from our bandcamp page to Long Island Food Not...

Bon Iver may be taking a extended break in the future.
Justin VernonWinding it down. I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. Thereís so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it Ė if at all Ė I'll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.
