relationship with music

If you put a book out at 20, you’re regarded as promising. It isn’t until 40 that the serious shit really kicks in and perhaps you’ll write your masterpiece at 55. You have to collect all these experiences to write about. Then you need the work ethic to sit down for a year and cut yourself off while you put it together. As I get older and more mature, my relationship with my music is becoming like that. It’s more challenging, like a mystery. It’s exciting and scary, instead of just doing it in your sleep because you’ve done it before., Sun 17 Jul 2005
