Personal Quote:

I don't think you are ever prepared for success with bands like Simple Minds and U2. It wasn't until your fourth or fifth album that you really got that big-league success. It doesn't happen overnight, so you get used to it. See more »


The first band he saw live was Genesis. See more »
