Her favorite place to write is in the kitchen. Allegedly, if you go to her house, there are decades worth of ideas and notes and lyrics on her kitchen table.

THis song was written by accident on the hood of his car under the stars at a party just north of San Francisco. He played this little riff, and just out came the chorus, “I’m a joker, im a smoker, I’m a midnight toker.” THen the rest of it was just lines from previous songs, “SOme call me a SPace Cowboy, some call me the gangster of love. Some call me Maurice…and the pompetous of love.” All the titles and lines from other songs he previously wrote.
