What I like best about music is when time goes away.
More fun than a frog in a glass of milk.
Bicycles are almost as good as guitars for meeting girls.

The roughest part for me when I'm writing a song is staring at a blank page. Where am I going from here? If you're a songwriter, you have to do that every time you start a song.
