She's an artist. He's a financial blogger for Reuters, and they're pouring me a glass of red wine and offering me a bath,
and I have had thousands of nights like that and like that.

You're falling into the audience and you're trusting each other.
I once asked an opening band of mine if they wanted to go out into the crowd and pass the hat to get some extra money, something that I did a lot.
And as usual, the band was psyched, but there was this one guy in the band who told me he just couldn't bring himself to go out there.
It felt too much like begging to stand there with the hat.
And I recognized his fear of "Is this fair?" and "Get a job."
And meanwhile, my band is becoming bigger and bigger.
We sign with a major label. And our music is a cross between punk and cabaret.
It's not for everybody. But...Well, maybe it's for you.
