1. When did you write your very first song? Are you still playing it?
I wrote my first song in 1969 when I was 15. I recently revived it with a new arrangement.

2. Tell us in one word why you create music?
'Meaningfulness'. i.e. it gives meaning to my life.

3. What is your biggest achievement of 2011 as an artist?
Maybe this interview and podcast!

4. Is there a story behind your song "Stay This Way (With You)"
It's a love song written for my Chinese beloved. That's why there's a bit of oriental instrumentation in there. Feelings I'd been longing to feel all my life.

5. What do you think of episode 99? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Embarrassed to say it was the first episode I'd listened to actually. I liked
Super 8 Cynics 'Hollywood Lied' the best I think. Though the whole selection beats the official charts anyday! I will listen in future.
