Im happy, I would say that Im one of the happiest people I know but Ive certainly had periods of profound sadness, depression and heartache and those are the kind of things that are interesting to me to write about.

But Im just having fun playing and giving Botox injections to the older songs.
I think really what Im saying is that I thrive on adversity.
I think I do better when things are a little tougher.
I dont think Ive ever laid out a batch of songs that pick myself apart the way that these do.
And to any new fans we made along the way, I say... welcome to our party. Its just starting to get going.
One time Robert Plant was set to check into the same room after I checked out, so I removed every light bulb and ordered up a bunch of stinky cheese and put it under the mattress.
I didnt want my last chapter to be the guy who sits at the piano and sings love songs.
Doing my own album provided me the opportunity to say whatever I wanted.
Its funny; Luther and I have written many songs together, but weve never written songs in the same room.
But more importantly, I think he remembered how very close I was with my own dad, who had died in 1997.
As a songwriter, theres nothing better than winning Song Of The Year. But I couldnt really celebrate, because it wasnt right. Luther wasnt standing next to me, to receive the award.
