Personal Quotes (2)

I have probably saved myself several million dollars in psychiatry bills because I talk to myself a lot. I think most songwriters do.
[on "Don't Give Up" by Peter Gabriel] When I first heard this track by Peter and Kate Bush it was just spectacular for me. I love the sentiment. Don't ever give up. Beautiful. Peter Gabriel makes incredibly great-sounding records.
