I've always been sort of clumsy. Mostly meaning socially. That's tricky business when you've got a big, gooey heart. But, yeah, when I can't quite figure out how to say a thing to someone, I make tapes for them. I need them to really know I mean it, you know? That's what this is: me letting you know how much I mean it. Every drunk sing along, every sweaty hug, every shirt you wear, record you grab, letter you write, thing you say...it's a really wild heart-sweller. Thank you for all of it.
For Volume I, I landed here. I mean, lots of songs mean something to me. These six mean a whole lot. I hope they will to you. If you already know them, play them loud and remember it all. If you don't, I hope they feel like something you've been waiting for.
Some people tell me I overly romanticize rock & roll. That I have too much of a dreamer head. I've never apologized for that. Nah, not even once.
