6 Obscure James Taylor Facts To Get You Ready for His Phoenix Concert

It seems likely that, back in 1968 when James Taylor signed to Apple records for his first album as an aspiring singer-songwriter, he would have happily -- willfully -- consented to an interview with any publication that would have him. Ah, what good old days those must have been, because 2014 finds Taylor, who is performing at US Airways Center on Tuesday, June 10, bigger than his britches and not interested in doing interviews. What a shame that fame should make him so inaccessible. To be fair, maybe there is something else that prevents him from taking interviews, perhaps the surprising, inherent shyness that Taylor shows on videos of television interviews?
