I haven’t had the time to plan returning to the scene because I haven’t left it.
I can’t get no satisfaction.
A lot of times songs are very much of a moment, that you just encapsulate. They come to you, you write them, you feel good that day, or bad that day.

I have a lot of songs, and I’d love to do some more recording with the band.
A good thing never ends.
I’m very much against the secondary ticket market. I don’t know anyone who isn’t.
