Q – Why did Matthew split halfway through the 1990 tour?

A – To make Girlfriend. He didn’t think he would be in a position to start the record so soon when the tour was booked… He did put me (and the whole band) in a very awkward position by pulling out half way through. Jack Johnson did a great job at such short notice, but he was obviously not the ideal man. He was however, available at short notice, and a fast learner.
