You don't see a lot of difference between the Gin Blossoms and the Byrds.
But I'm able to just keep going, and that's the challenge. It's the next song. And then just enjoying the shows and people who come out to the shows. It's pretty organic, really.
There was just no way I could leave this little Martin guitar in my apartment overnight or even in the afternoon, and expect to find it there when I got back.
It's often said that life is strange. But compared to what?
Folk-rock hasn't changed much over the decades since the Byrds started it.
Music should be truthful and real, but it should also be healing and uplifting.
People can't stay out of their cars. I do think we have a real problem staying out of our automobiles. We have a real dependency on them, and it may be for more than just transportation.
So I played the acoustic guitar and harmonica and stomped my foot and I think I was right in assuming that Greenwich Village would be the best place to perform my own material and possibly get some attention, move on to making records and all.
And the music, as far as a type of music, it's still pretty viable.
For as long as I'm able to write songs and sing them, it's just about making them ones I feel proud to sing again and again.
I don't cringe when I think of doing old material. A lot of the people have been with me through the years.
I have a knack for writing tribute songs for people who will never know about them.
I haven't had the most lucrative career. If I'm going to be completely honest, I'm a one-hit wonder.
I just play, and I'm always trying to write songs.
I like getting requests from audience members.
