Keith Grimwood, left, and Ezra Idlet have been Trout Fishing in America for 41 years.

Catch Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood in a great mood at the same time, and it's unlikely you'll get a serious answer to anything -- but they'll mean everything they say. After 41 years playing together as Trout Fishing in America, the musicians know each other better than anyone but their wives do. And that means they riff off each other verbally the same way they do musically.
