One time Robert Plant was set to check into the same room after I checked out, so I removed every light bulb and ordered up a bunch of stinky cheese and put it under the mattress.
When things are too easy I lose interest in them so I find ways to complicate them to get myself interested.
I've never written a song that I thought was a hit.
I've always loved groups like U2 and Coldplay.
It's funny; Luther and I have written many songs together, but we've never written songs in the same room.
Doing my own album provided me the opportunity to say whatever I wanted.
I really don't and I don't know how many years I've been making records, 17 years or whatever, I don't think I've ever picked a favourite.
I've never, ever in my life enjoyed playing live the way I am now.
My joke, which isn't really a joke, is that there will be one of two tours: the tour for the album that does well, or the tour for the album that stiffs.
I love when people get songs wrong. I love when people take something from a song that's totally not what I intended!
But more importantly, I think he remembered how very close I was with my own dad, who had died in 1997.
I'm happy, I would say that I'm one of the happiest people I know but I've certainly had periods of profound sadness, depression and heartache and those are the kind of things that are interesting to me to write about.
I understand that, but this disc shows the type of music that I've always liked and wanted to make.
So it was just a case of getting a bunch of songs that I had been writing for years but hadn't recorded together, and the result was My Own Best Enemy.
Ultimately it seems to do well for me, I seem to do better so instead of me being my own worst enemy, I'm my own best enemy I guess.
