"One of the best things I learned is, First of all, I need to be fired up about what I am doing and I get fired up around other people.
When I’m on my own, I can practice and I can play most songs, or I can write myself a list of songs I haven’t played in ages and go through them and see if I can get through them, in case I get called on one during the show, cause I never use a setlist .
It’s different for a guy like you, or when I was playing in a band, there was always a setlist because everyone else needs to know what’s going next, you know?
When I play my own shows, like I will tonight or whenever, there’s never a setlist. All I have to do is make up my mind what I’m going to start with and then away I go"
