    "'Every Rose Has Its Thorn' was inspired by a break-up in my life with a girl that I had met. We thought we had it all going on and that did not turn out to be. I wrote it in Dallas, Texas, in a laundromat, waiting for my clothes to dry. Way, way way, long time ago."

    "No, I love music and I’m one of those guys who believes music is a universal language so there is no song that I hate. And if there’s a song that I maybe heard too much on the radio, then I’ll maybe just change the dial or hit something else on the ol’ iPod."

    "You know what, that’s a good question. I’ve been fortunate throughout my life to do a lot of duets with different people but I think one of my favorite artists probably right now to do something with probably for me, as a rocker, it’d probably be AC/DC."

    "I think, songs are like kids, you love them all. And as the father of two beautiful daughters, you love them all, they’re all different but again probably one that influenced my life the most was probably 'Something to Believe In' with Poison and 'A Beautiful Soul.' I wrote ['A Beautiful Soul'] after I had my brain [hemorrhage] and heart surgery."
