No matter how prosaic something is that you've done and been a part of again and again, there is so much more there that you haven't seen.
I think that prog rock is the science fiction of music. Science fiction speculates on what the future might be and look like and how we'll get there, and yet there's always a central theme of humanity, or there should be. Progressive rock has the same concept of exploration into the parts of the music world that hasn't been explored.
I've been in that angst of loneliness, where you're really alone in the universe, except for the dog.
I love to go to a movie, get a Diet Coke and a barrel of popcorn, and sit there with my kids and watch a film.
