DREAM GIG: Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen live from Armadillo World headquarters, November 1973. I’d love to be on stage with them, but I’d be happy just to be there.

I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: my pants. Not only do they save me the embarrassment of showing my knees in public, they also contain handy things like my keys and my wallet.

I WROTE THIS SONG: in the kitchen at my old house. I had been reading about Thomas A Dorsey, who wrote Peace in the Valley and many other gospel classics, and I wanted to write a very simple gospel song that anyone could relate to.
