    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Drugs were pretty easy to quit taking. I was never addicted to anything to begin with. But then, liquor-I had to wait about another six years before I finally got around to quitting that. I'm sure glad I did.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I never thought of myself as being a good songwriter. There are a ton of other people that are good songwriters, but I don't think I'm in the club. What I do well is perform, sometimes sing pretty good, and accompany myself well and arrange fairly well.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I probably write 10 things to every one that I want to use. It's easy for me to write something that's so poppy that it's wrong for me. If I was 22 years old... it's easy for me to write something that's less mature than I am or ought to be. I'm looking for something that acts my age.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“If you're writing anything decent, it's in you, it's your spirit coming out. If it's not an expression of how a person genuinely feels, then it's not a good song done with any conviction.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The more alone I am, the more focused I can get. I've written things with people, some of which I liked and others I think are total travesties. Collaborating is trying to make a piece of music and get someone else to come up with the ideas. What's the fun of that?”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“You can't live your life being upset about things, but it's a lot easier to not be upset about it if you've got enough money yourself. If you're walking around broke and working a job from nine to five or seven to five, and you're really struggling to make ends meet, you start thinking about people who have ripped you off and getting pretty angry at them.”
