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.
