Quotes

1[on his hair style] I spent my life looking in the mirror and thinking, I don't get it - that's not me. The first time I got dreads, I caught my reflection in a window. and it was the first time that I saw me. It was like the first time I wrote a song.
2Maria is the only one who's not completely real. She's just an idea of someone I came up with when I was writing "Round Here." I mean, she's me. It's through the eyes of a girl, but it's someone very much like me struggling at the edge, not sure if she's going to fall off on one side or the other. It's a theme that's stuck through songs. So she keeps popping up.
