Parents died from cancer in the 1980s. Did not, however, attend either funeral stating that the media circus would be disrespectful to them.

Practices Ashtanga Vinyasa,Tantra, and Jivamukti yoga.

An avid chess player.

Adheres to a macrobiotic diet.

Quote: “I’m essentially agnostic. I don’t have a problem with God. I have a problem with religion. I’ve chosen to live my life without the certainties of religious faith. I think they’re dangerous. Music is something that gives my life value and spiritual solace.”

Can this man teach writers anything?

Well, obviously, since he writes songs, he’s a writer, though, can he teach writers of stories?

Well, most of his songs are stories

So What can he teach other writers?

Just before a video that could certainly help any writer, I should mention I’ve written a number of other posts about music and writing.

    Wonderful, he is a true bard…..:-) And I think every writer could take from this that we all have stories. You just have to find them within yourself :-)

    Yes, Jane, a Bard he is and a versatile, powerful, lyrical, and accomplished one at that :-)
