MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: I saw John Fogerty up close at the Saenger Theater in New Orleans with my dad in 1998ish. He played everything, sounded amazing.
I WROTE THIS SONG: The Eames Era – “NC-17.” Was towards the end of that band. We threw all of our writing rules away and thats when we started having real fun.
