Adult life is dealing with an enormous amount of questions that don't have answers. So I let the mystery settle into my music. I don't deny anything, I don't advocate anything, I just live with it.
Somebody who can reckon with the past, who can live with the past in the present, and move towards the future - that's fabulous.
Until I realized that rock music was my connection to the rest of the human race, I felt like I was dying, for some reason, and I didn't know why.
The audiences are there as a result of my history with the band but also as a result of my being able to reach people with a tune.
