On your new album, The Speed Of Now Part 1, you talk about things like drinking too much and bad relationships. But you don’t have issues with either of those now...
I don’t just write about my life now. That would be a limiting kind of thing. I write about my entire life – there are infinite things to write about.
You left school at 15 to pursue music. Any regrets?
No. I would’ve left sooner if I could have [laughs]. I wasn’t very good at school. I was playing my guitar all the time and I was very distracted.
Did you ever imagine you’d have this amazing career?
I didn’t think that far ahead. I just wanted to be playing all the time. I knew that this was my calling.
How would you feel if your daughters Sunday or Faith asked to leave school at 15?
I don’t know [laughs], I’ll let you know if that happens!
