"Well, I've tried to avoid catharsis in my songwriting. I've tried to make sure that when I sat down and exercise that particular craft that I served the true master, which is, of course, the audience and the audience that I grew up with, the neighborhood crowd that I grew up with who are now in my age group, my demographic, 50 to 70 years old. You know, I still, when I sit to write a song, I want to write songs that touch those guys."
