To my undying shame, I do read reviews. I don't read them all, but I like to get some kind of idea how things are going.
People are always surprised to see clues to my being a normal kind of guy. As if I'm somehow letting the team down.
What I'm resistant to is the 'Walk the Line' biopic, where you have this redemptive life done in two hours. It just doesn't wash with me. I've been there and things don't work out that way.
The big problem with songwriting for me is starting a new song. It's the thing where all the anguish exists, not in the writing of the song, but the starting of the new song.
