To actually put the time and energy into an album that would be better than Pull would be a hell of a lot of work, because I took that band really seriously, way more seriously than people took us. If you go back and listen to the records, you can hear it.
It's a little bit more like I want to give this to the people that are really into it first - I don't have a lot of desire to be like Bon Jovi or something like that, I really want to concentrate on the music.
Throughout the years I have tried to hone my skills to gain mastery over the music in my head.
I was really into Black Sabbath, but heavy guitars can really be very limiting, it's a great frequency and it's great fun to listen to but on the other hand, musically you can do a lot more without it.
I was just going more for what I've always been influenced by, European music.
I'm not financially insecure anymore either so I don't have to sit there and get on the latest Poison tour just to make money, which is what a lot of them are doing.
The main thing is that I've been studying composition for the last four years.
I'd say it's the life experience combined with the
lessons that enabled me to go much further.
I'd like to tour, but again, to tour my music now would take a bigger band.
I play piano and guitar. Acoustic guitar. I tried studying classical guitar when I was 16 but it got really hard. I could never play a lead to save my life.
I could play everything but could never take a lead. My brain just doesn't work like that.
Rock stardom and all that stuff like that was never like my main M.O., my main M.O. is musical growth, and if I become a rock star in the process, great!
I'm a child of the 70's; influenced mostly by albums that had a wide variety of style.
