"Once I was taking a break during a performance, talking to some dear friends, Rob and Lori Reed. Rob said 'I was just saying to Lori, listening to John is like having a conversation with an old friend.' Rob has since passed on but that stuck with me. I can't imagine a nicer thing to say about someone's music. I hope, if you listen to any of my music, you'll feel something like that too. What could be better?"
