Since he’s been writing songs, it seems like he’s always thinking about that. So even when he’s talking to you now, he’s thinking about the next thing that rhymes with that word. Even when he’s driving. We joke he’s a bad driver, his focus is never 100 percent on what he’s doing. Which is good for us ‘cause it means he’s got another 12 songs up his sleeve. I think music must be the best way for him to be concise and get everything out. Otherwise his head would explode.
