When I write love songs, people think they're really soppy but I see love as a consolation for the boredom of life.
I always hate explaining away songs, because for me they mean something, and for other people, they'll mean something absolutely different.
People are People still gets played to death on '80s stations. It was our first big break in America. It's not exactly my favorite song.
When people meet me I think they're surprised to find out I'm not always angst-ridden.
I didn't write songs for a very long time.
The majority of the time I'm at home with my family, I play football three times a week.
I lead two totally separate lives. There are times when I have to slip into rock star mode.
Music is really all about experimentation and lots of trial and error. It's just mind-numbingly boring until you hit on something that works well.
I don't write poems and put them to music. Just let things flow.
Our music over the years has been very cinematic. It's surprising we never really got into film soundtracks.
Record covers helped me discover a lot of music that I wasn't aware of.
