I think often sadness is a great place to get songs from.
I think it’s a mistake where rap music is these days. It doesn’t seem to be able to look out of the ghetto and that’s ultimately unfortunate because it defines our limitations.
I like pop music. I consider rock ‘n’ roll to be a branch of pop music.
I enjoy all forms of music – pop classical and opera.
I can play punk rock and I love playing punk rock but I was into every other style of music before I played punk rock.
I believe it is in my nature to dance by virtue of the beat of my heart the pulse of my blood and the music in my mind.
Great classic music that I’ve been turned on to has not only inspired and influenced me but it has had an effect on my songwriting.
Great music is in a sense serene it is certain of the values it asserts.
