ON REIMAGINING HIS OLD TUNES ON NEW BLOOD

It’s like your kid has grown up and lived a life. It’s not the same relationship. You’re both different. You connect all over again.

ON THE LEGACY OF “DON’T GIVE UP”

That song really registered with people. I’ve heard stories of people who were suicidal and kept playing that song [instead]. Incredible.

ON TOURING IN HIS 60S

I get to tour in relative comfort now: I don’t sleep in vans anymore. I also keep tours short. I have young kids [Luc, 3, and Isaac, 10] in this second round of life, and I don’t want to be an absentee dad.
