Q – May I ask if the boy featured on the cover of the “Baby” single is one of your own sons ? I really like this picture for its opposition between your serious motionless pose (very Lloyd Cole) and his instant playful attitude. And the song itself is beautiful, especially the bridge that really means to me. How do you consider it now, some 10 years after its release ?
A – That is William and the record company were not supposed to use that shot. It was supposed to be for family use only. I always thought that was one of the better songs and when it didn’t shake the world I guess I may have lowered my expectations, somewhat..
