I would love to play the drums with ‘The Who.’
I did an instrumental jazz album. That was my first album.
I began playing drums when I was seven and guitar when I was fourteen, but it wasn’t until the early ’90s that I took music seriously.
I don’t really collect guitars like some musicians do.
There’s really only three things you can write music about: girls, cars and surfing.
I was in Australia in about 1996 when I played some acoustic guitar for some guys at a studio down there. They were pretty happy with it, and mentioned doing an album, so about a year later I met some people who were interested in recording.
I actually was consciously trying to emulate bands like Bruce Springsteen, and just trying to emulate what they do structurally.
New Zealand is my favorite country to visit.
