That's what I love about this moment. I see the names all linked for all time. There's my name right next to the name of the woman who became my wife in the middle of all this craziness. There's Kenny Loggins' name. Proof that he did indeed call one night with a "crazy idea."

In this band, I can use every aspect of what I do and love as an artist. I don't have to make myself smaller to fit in; I just have to have the courage to put it all out there.

When I look back, I can see that I've been searching for home since I started out in '71. It seems my life has been an endless quest for home, searching for that place where I know I belong.

I've allowed myself this feeling only a few times in my life. It's a moment when suddenly, unexpectedly there is nothing to plan or do, and nothing to fear. All of life is distilled into here and now. I am no longer concerned about tomorrow. Everything I need is all around me.

A few days ago it came to my attention that a fellow HuffPo writer named Ilene Angel had written a very flattering review of Blue Sky Riders. In the post, she asked me the questions she wished she'd have asked me backstage. I figured it might be fun and informative to print her questions here, with my answers, too.

I had dropped out of college, gone to California, come home, gotten married and had two kids and was now making $278 a week. I was also writing songs in my basement every night after the kids were asleep. In my heart of hearts I knew that THAT was what i was put on this planet to do.

Even though you may have put in years of sweat to attain your goal, there always seems to be this bizarre sense of surprise, right at that moment when it all comes true. Even though every bone in your body knew it was just gonna happen, when it actually does, I guarantee shock and awe.

Let's Start a Band

Suddenly, I had a new musical style, a new band behind me and by the end of the year, a new marriage. I was ten feet tall and bullet-proof and, like most young, stupidly successful musicians, I just naturally assumed it would all last forever.

I finally understand what I wished for as a young man in Pasadena, as a rock star in the '80s and again as a grown man starting over again in 2012... It's the whole enchilada: nerves, tears and all. This is exactly what success feels like.

This IS A Band!

How do we find a new way to collaborate that honors each of our creative urges, while keeping this production within our modest budget? After all, this ain't "Dark Side of the Moon," ya know.

One More Time, With Feeling

There are 55,578 new bands arriving onto "the music scene" each week, (I'm guessing here...), all young and gorgeous, all talented beyond belief, (well not ALL, necessarily), but all vying for the same shot: for your attention, your imagination, and your hard earned cash. So what am I doing here, now, at my age, still wanting you to sing along?

How To Find The Soundtrack For Our Lives

Music kept us strong through personal adversities, and we even used music at the funerals of our loved ones, too many now to mention. I myself heard "Celebrate Me Home" at my own brother's funeral; a moment I never could have anticipated nor will ever forget.

Gary, and I are just two very different personalities in this situation: He watches the budget, I ignore it. He likes stability and firm ground to stand on, I like the fluidity of change and invention. Gary says, "What's wrong with how it IS?!" I say, "Nothing. I just think it could be better!"

As I rode my bike through the fire-ravaged hills, I was amazed to see a few small sprigs of green reaching out from the trunks of the seemingly devastated, blackened oak trees along the way.

Something pushes you when you make art for a living, something beyond logic. So you look for the diamonds hiding in the grass, because that's where inspiration lives, that's where the fun is.
