The stage is my comfort zone, and playing live is what I've always wanted to do. It's why I want to do two hundred dates a year. I wouldn't feel that way if I were nervous onstage.
My career only took off because of one football game. I thought it was funny. 'Playboy' called and offered me a cover just like that.

I'm always nervous when I perform anyway.
