Let’s say I’m not feeling well, and somebody would say to me, ‘Just do an easy show, just go out and do a light…’ – I can’t! I cannot do that kind of a show. I have to still put 150 percent into it, and it’s funny: it’s so healing to do that.

I was just different. When the other kids gravitated to football or basketball, I went fishing and skating. I was into trapping animals, pheasants and squirrels. Not only was I trapper, I was a taxidermist.

I’m a performer. I’ve tried everything there is.

I always feel that it’s great when you can be happy when you’re by yourself. That’s not a bad thing.

You have ‘listeners’ ears’ when you’re just starting out, and your ‘listeners’ ears’ tell you what will work. You lose those ears later, when you break songs down into production elements too much.
