Yes, I know, Rob Thomas is kinda a douche. But watch the video anyway.
He does have some insightful things to say about songwriting.
What struck me was at the very end of the interview, Rob states that he doesn’t know how to do anything else but music. This relates to Hoover’s Dave Matthews post from a couple of days ago, about sacrifice and risk. It seems to be that to “make it” you’ve got to be willing to risk it all.
Lyrics Baby, Lyrics.
