I don’t really think about scenarios like that? If a guy asked me if I had a Tumblr, I would just go ‘Yeah, and cheers to that’ haha. Music is my main passion in life, and all of my friends are well aware of that. So naturally I listen to a shitload of music, I talk a lot about music, and I happen to have a blog about my favorite artist. Don’t really see the problem with that? There’s nothing wrong with liking what you like.
Don’t worry, be happy :)
Hahaha, if the topic was brought up to discussion, sure. No big deal :)
Yeah, we’re pretty much on the same level, haha.
Nope, I don’t think it’ll sound precisely like B&R. He’s never done a Battle Studies part 2 or a Continuum part 2, it’ll be something else part 1. But I think it’ll be a continuation of B&R, for sure. A new branch on the same tree, if you will, hah. He’s still feeling the vibe and sound of B&R, and I think we’ll hear that in this upcoming record, but like everything he’s put out thus far, it’ll stand on its own and have a separate fingerprint. I’ve heard from other artists that as you’re making an album, that inspires you to make another album, and that’s why some of the best songs comes towards the tail end of the process. And one of the last songs he wrote for B&R was “If I Ever Get Around To Living”, and he’s said that that song will be the gateway to this upcoming album, so I’m extremely excited about this album :)
Haha, ‘I feel like you’re going to answer’… :p No, but of course I like to make people feel special on their birthdays, I love celebrating other people (not a big self-birthday celebrator) :) But I’m a big believer in daily encouragements. Like you said, it doesn’t take a lot to brighten up someone’s day :)
Cool. Come off anon and I’ll give you my address.
Nope, not anymore. It’s a shame actually, nothing beats a handwritten letter :) You wanna write me one? (sorry, at work, don’t have the gif) ;)
Sure he can. He’s been writing songs ever since he got the granuloma, there were probably 20/30 songs written for B&R, and he’s written a lot after B&R came out aswell. And he’s been recording in between surgeries and voice rest. I’m guessing he pretty much already has all the songs for the record ready, and is now recording and putting the finishing touches on it. He’s a control freak, and won’t put out music he’s not 100% backing up. So I’m not concerned :)
John has written a song called Hummingbird, yes. But so has a lot of artists, so there’s probably some confusion because of that.
Yeah, it’s not bad :)
I agree, it’s just amazing to see his face when he’s on stage now. It’s different. He definitely has a new appreciation for playing music.
And you’re welcome :) x
