Folk-rock hasn't changed much over the decades since the Byrds started it.
It's often said that life is strange. But compared to what?
I'm not trying to be the new anybody.
I wouldn't be interested in just doing a show that's mapped out and choreographed with a set list. That would've been boring so long ago it just wouldn't be any fun.
I relate to the audiences and they know me. It's pretty real.
I just play, and I'm always trying to write songs.
And the music, as far as a type of music, it's still pretty viable.
There was just no way I could leave this little Martin guitar in my apartment overnight or even in the afternoon, and expect to find it there when I got back.
But I'm able to just keep going, and that's the challenge. It's the next song. And then just enjoying the shows and people who come out to the shows. It's pretty organic, really.
So I played the acoustic guitar and harmonica and stomped my foot and I think I was right in assuming that Greenwich Village would be the best place to perform my own material and possibly get some attention, move on to making records and all.

It doesn't matter much what kind of house you've got as long as it's a happy home.
I don't cringe when I think of doing old material. A lot of the people have been with me through the years.
You don't see a lot of difference between the Gin Blossoms and the Byrds.
