Q – Can you possibly remember having played a cover of the Beatles “Why don’t we do it in the road ?” during your first solo tour ? If yes, why such an uncommon choice ?

A – I thought I answered this before.. Yes we did on my first solo tour, with Robert Quine and Matthew Sweet (and me) on guitars. I guess we were wanting to be rather noisy and that seemed that a statement of intent – we opened the set with it. I was surprised at how many journalists thought it was a Lennon song.
