Am I genuinely buzzing for every single gig?
.
Of course not.
.
I’m human. And every now and again, I’m tired / sick / in a bad mood / etc.
.
But I guarantee you, if you watched me at one of these shows, you would find it impossible to tell the difference from the nights when I’m loving every moment.
.
Because my feelings don’t matter.
.
Whether there are 100 people or 10,000 my job is to play the best set possible for the crowd.
.
To make people forget about the shit in their lives.
.
To give my all, in appreciation of the fact that every person there has spent a lot of money to come.
.
Now, there’s one school of thought that says we should always be honest about our feelings.
.
If we’re not happy we should be able to tell people.
.
If we don’t want to perform, we just back out.
.
Fuck. That. .
Me? I say: you turn up and do your fucking job whether you want to or not.
.
Can you imagine a heart surgeon stopping, half way through a procedure? “Sorry, but I’ve decided this isn’t for me.”
.
Or a soldier, at the point of a critical operation, changing his mind and backing out?
.
I’m not doing anything on the level of a heart surgeon or soldier... but I approach every single set like I am.

I get asked how to be better at socials often.
.
But never how to be better at music.
.
This is back to front.
.
Social media is a reflection of music.
.
Most people are here because I’ve made good music.
.
If I make good posts too, that’s just a bonus.
.
You want followers and likes? Nail the main thing in your life and that shit will come.

Never stop learning.
.
It’s all about being a student of life.
.
I reckon I read about 50 books a year. Give me a book anyway over TV, YouTube, or social media.
.
Pretty much every non-fiction book I read teaches me something that I end up implementing in my own life.
.
Even if I just learn a small thing, when you read enough books, you start to experience real differences.
.
For those of you who read (and I appreciate this might be a depressingly low number), what’s your fav book, fiction or non-fiction?
.

Away from the family all week and photos like this, of Elise’s first beach sunset, are keeping my mind on family.
.
So grateful that technology makes keeping our loved ones close so much easier. I can’t even imagine leaving kids behind in the 1980s when there was on FaceTime and no smartphones, just a photo in your wallet...

Music videos are usually a fucking drag. This video for U was actually a lot of fun, because @bobruce and I avoided most of the shoot, instead leaving these two beauties to travel all through the majestic desert for a week capturing all this amazing footage.
.
My contribution involved showing up on the last day, pretended to record the song in a hotel room, getting drunk on some random whisky which was sponsoring the shoot, then fucking off back to LA.
.
(I had spent a good 18 months working on the album though, so I forgive myself).
.
Either way it’s a gorgeous video that I can still watch and enjoy now. Like most of Drive it makes me want to get in a car and fuck off into the desert for a bit.

Heartbreaking scenes from Malibu. Having spent so many lazy Sundays there over the past 6 years, seeing these fires tear down so many home, livelihoods and beautiful places is really tough.
.
This is no time for politics. I can’t remember the last time it rained in SoCal. It’s been an insanely dry year even for a place that doesn’t rain a lot to begin with. Add in the freakishly hot weather for November + wind and that’s always a recipe for wildfires.
.
Grateful for the first responders here in CA and thinking of all affected 😢
