I used to drink a lot. I had to stop drinking because it was getting the better of me, and I replaced that with really doing shows.
I'd love to have a hit record. I don't believe anyone that says they wouldn't like that.
I feel pretty comfortable in a lot of different musical styles. I like rhythm, and I like melody and so forth.
I've got a long-term plan.
I don't think I'm going to change jobs at this point.
I don't walk off and come back for encores. I figure I can add four weeks to my life that way.
It's frustrating to do albums that you think are worth listening to, but it's just so difficult to cut through.
My mother features quite heavily in a lot of my songs.
I got very famous for a minute and then it just all went away, you know? And for the last 20 years - you've got to pick yourself up and dust yourself off and then go on your merry way and start again, in a sense, and that's what I've been doing.
It's great fun if you get a good piece of writing and you can pretend to be someone else, tell a story that needs to be told, make some kind of connection. I've always fancied myself as a leading man, but I really doubt whether anyone else sees me that way.
The thing with playing live is, most of the audience is in their 20s and 30s. If you're older than that, you don't tend to go out to shows anymore. So it's good if you can attract a younger audience because they've got the energy to get up off the sofa and go out.
