I have a definite talent for convincing people to try something new. I am a good salesman. When I'm on form, I can sell anything.
I have lived in countries that were coming out of conflict: Ireland, South Africa, the Czech republic. People there are overflowing with energy.
I'm very good with technology, I always have been, and with machines in general. They seem not threatening like other people find them, but a source of fun and amusement.
In the 1960s, people were trying to get away from the pop song format. Tracks were getting longer, or much, much shorter.
People assume that the meaning of a song is vested in the lyrics. To me, that has never been the case. There are very few songs that I can think of where I remember the words.
Try to make things that can become better in other people's minds than they were in yours.
