Recruiting Station was a story that came as the result of many anxious awakenings during many nights.
Music is love, love is music, music is life, and I love my life. Thank you and good night.
I'm the kind of guy who grew up listening to Three Dog Night and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
I'm a bit of an insomniac. I go to bed at 5am because I get caught up in watching TV or listening to music at night.
On the rare occasions when I spend a night in Oxford, the keeping of the hours by the clock towers in New College, and Merton, and the great booming of Tom tolling 101 times at 9 pm at Christ Church are inextricably interwoven with memories and regrets and lost joys. The sound almost sends me mad, so intense are the feelings it evokes.
Writing is my love. If you love something, you find a lot of time. I write for two hours a day, usually starting at midnight; at times, I start at 11.
For me, there is no day or night for music. I often work through the night - without phone calls disturbing me.
I developed a mania for Fitzgerald - by the time I'd graduated from high school I'd read everything he'd written. I started with 'The Great Gatsby' and moved on to 'Tender Is the Night,' which just swept me away. Then I read 'This Side of Paradise,' his novel about Princeton - I literally slept with that book under my pillow for two years.
The great thing about being on tour is that... the band plays at night and other than that we have a lot of free time.
I don't care if it was 2 o'clock in the morning after a night game. I had to break down the film by myself before I watched it with the team. I wanted to see everything I did wrong and did right or I wouldn't be able to sleep.
