Great songs write themselves. You’re just being led by the nose, or the ears. The skill is not to interfere with it too much. Ignore intelligence, ignore everything; just follow it where it takes you. You really have no say in it, and suddenly there it is: “Oh, I know how this goes,” and you can’t believe it, because you think that nothing comes like that. You think, where did I steal this from? No, no, that’s original—well, about as original as I.
From Sunday’s show at Beerland. I love this poster. I took the picture in Amsterdam - it’s a bar call The Queen’s Head. Alone Together is Beerland’s monthly showcase of solo performances - so, DUDES from rock bands playing songs alone. If I had better (any) photoshop skills, I would have inserted a barbie to represent moi! Was a really fun night with the boys.
