I had written movie scores, television series, played with other people. Carl had done the same with Asia, with other bands, everything. We weren't about to entrust Greg automatically with a production credit.
We can all put weight on or lose weight.
I love my mother dearly, but it wouldn't be suitable for me to live with her all the time.

Next year I'm going to be a guesting soloist with orchestras all over Europe, to start off with.
I don't regard myself as a great classical or jazz pianist. I like country music, but I'm not a great player. I just like music. Drums 'n' bass is pretty exciting and I'd love to explore it.
