Jandek isn't a real person. He's a fiction made by Sterling Smith,
and now other people are adding to the fiction. This is made more
real by there being instances of Jandek performing live. How much is
Jandek a fiction? I'm sure that if you managed to get him between
characters Jandek/Sterling Smith could play you 'Johnny B Goode' at
the very least, but he chooses not to. Jandek is a number of rules
that we don't know but can appreciate.
