Personal Quote:

There were a few good albums, but too often those companies had too much influence. I think that's what helped cause the friction with the big labels like Virgin who'd signed me to a big contract thinking that in no time I'd be selling just like Phil Collins. And so there were experiences that didn't go too well. See more »
