I sing in key as much as I can, but I also want to try new things. When I sing in keys, it’s the first thing I do. If I can’t get it in, then I have to start over. But it’s always about finding the sweet spot. I find different things in each song.
What are you reading at the moment?
I am reading The Book of the New Sun by William Blake, which is a kind of spiritual guide for a new dawn. I’m also reading The Odyssey by Homer.

Absolutely. With the most talented people. If you are really talented, all that comes with it. I’m glad that I am not famous and can be a part of these great bands. For me that’s great. Maybe with some people that don’t have the talent, then it’s not so great.
Are you in any interest in playing Led Zeppelin once again?
