THE BOOK THAT CHANGED MY LIFE: ” You Can’t Go Home Again” by Thomas Wofle
I NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT: pants (much).
I WROTE THIS SONG: “In The Summer” – I was in the middle of working on the record and the first line just pop’d in my head one evening. I wrote all the words down on the spot in about 15 minutes, and that was that. Didn’t try to over-think it. The next day I brought it to the studio, played it for the folks there and they dug it so, we recorded it. Those were the vibraphones used on Roy Orbison’s “Crying,” by the way. It was a real pleasure to get to play those.
