I felt pressured by continuous touring.
I actually got really petrified by the thought of people seeing me.
My parents, especially my mother, were no influence on me whatsoever.
Come English Settlement, I had it in my head that I didn't want to tour.
I suppose my father was more influential in my starting to play the guitar.
I don't like touring and it seemed to be getting on top of me in a big way.
People will always be tempted to wipe their feet on anything with 'welcome' written on it.
We're horribly mundane, aggressively mundane individuals. We're the ninjas of the mundane, you might say.
It's sort of what jazz would be if it stopped being snobby and what rock would be if it stopped being stupid.
We do this for the art, not the adulation. I'd rather our music get liked and we get ignored. I don't want to be adored for anything other than the music.
