I'm usually going to make a record, finish a record, start a record or start a tour or between tours.
I've spent the last year and a half going through a very public separation, hiding in hotel lobbies.
It's actually come as quite a shock to learn just how many people don't like me.
To see a lot of the smaller labels disappear or get gobbled up by the bigger labels, that's a shame. It was a bit of a shock at first to see the demise of the record stores.
It's always been easy with Mark, he's a rock fan and we speak the same language. He's a big Beatles fan too. We worked a lot via CLI calls, though only meeting up once every couple of months.

To be honest, producing records interests me less at the moment and I really don't want to get involved in album projects that are going to take up a lot of time.
