QUOTES from the interview:
The book - Just Between You And Me (time 1.20): "There were a lot of unanswered questions or misconceptions around the band April
...See More Wine. That was a big reason for writing the book."
Guilt about being away from his children in the past (time 3.48): "I think it's words unsaid. I think there was a sense of that, but we never really had those kinds of discussions."
The departure of longtime drummer Jerry Mercer: "I was disappointed that he wasn't going to be drumming with us, but that was his choice. He was not fired, relieved in any way... It wasn't us. He made the decision."
Drugs (8.32): "Everybody was doing it. It was the lifestyle. It was the '70s - everybody did it. It terms of cocaine - suits were doing it, lawyers were dong it, accountants were doing it. Everybody was doing cocaine for a while. It was God's way of saying you had too much money. It was just out there and everybody did it for a while."
