I did art; I made furniture. I didn't want to be a cliche - the Beatle's son who became a musician.
I respect my dad, and he's amazing. He's my hero. He's the Beatles, man - or one of them.
It's hard to live up to The Beatles. When Wings toured, they got slated. Even Dad found it hard living up to The Beatles. I started out playing under an alias because I wanted to start quietly.
I'm naturally guarded because of the way I was brought up. But I understand people are interested in who I am.
For my first album I wanted to make a record that would be intimate, deeply personal, and honest.
Mum was very cool. Even though she came from a pretty affluent family, she was cool. She was really good, a very normal person.
I always feel honored to meet people who ever met my mum. It means a lot to me.
I definitely want to embrace the relationships I have with the people I love.
Picking up a guitar - I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
Some artists are happy doing the same thing again and again, but my favorite artists are the ones who evolve and grow, and I want to be one of them.
When I was 20, my mother died and I went off the rails a little bit. I kinda had my slightly dark period.
Everyone at school knew who my dad was. It made me a little self-conscious a little introverted because I had a lot of attention drawn towards me, but in a way I guess it gives you a little bit of a celebrity skin, even though I wasn't a celebrity.
Growing up, I put a lot of pressure on myself. I felt with The Beatles legacy that there was pressure on me to do music, and while I always loved music and it was always around me at home, I thought about doing other things.
I was heavily into Nirvana and I still am, but when I was 23 I got disillusioned by music. Then I just focused more on myself and gave up music for a while.
Music is in me. I don't have much of a choice. People might listen to one of my songs or come and see my because of my famous last name, but if my music's not good they won't hang around.
