Beyond a certain point, the music isn't mine anymore. It's yours.
Everything has added up to a load that I'm getting tired of carrying. It's gotten so complicated. It's the three failed marriages, and having kids that grew up without me, and it's the personal criticism, of being Mr. Nice Guy, or of divorcing my wife by fax, all that stuff, the journalism, some of which I find insulting.
There's no magic for getting into the groove... just banging away at it. Sometimes the lyrics come first, sometimes the music.
Many of the articles printed over the last few months have ended up painting a picture of me that is more than a little distorted.
I'm not a singer who plays a bit of drums. I'm a drummer that sings a bit.
