“I want to make one, I just don’t really know about releasing one. I don’t know, I can’t really deal with criticism very well and I have already got criticism coming from one angle and I don’t feel the need to get it from somewhere else”

"I wanted to play piano in restaurants in the south of France. I went there on holiday once and I saw this guy playing in an old tuxedo. He was all disheveled, with a whisky glass on the piano.
