Barney Hoskyns, Rock's Backpages audio, 2011

The Canadian singer-songwriter talks about being underrated and about the disillusion and "creeping pessimism" in his lyrics for Long Player Late Bloomer; about Love Shines, Doug Arrowsmith's film about him; about getting signed at the ripe old age of 31; about working on Long Player with producer Bob Rock; about how he wrote songs such as 'Strawberry Blonde'; about 'God Loves Everyone' and Westboro Baptist Church; and about repeatedly watching a live DVD by Neil Diamond.
