#Quote
1 Being a father and a husband I realised that there are more important things than music. Solo work is a boutique effort for me; it's a labour of love. I long ago gave up the idea that it would be appreciated on a commercial level. Fleetwood Mac is the golden carrot and my solo work is kind of indulged by the record company.
2 In Fleetwood Mac nothing is certain until you actually see it. But it's up to us to not shoot ourselves in the foot.
