Neil's effect on the band was immediate and very fulfilling. He adds a certain edge to the sound and, of course, he is an incredible musician. We became a better band because of the inclusion of Neil Young.
I only do solo albums when songs are screaming at me to be let out of my mind.
There's never really been any serious discussion amongst me David and Stephen about what we do with our harmonies. It just seems to be a very natural thing to do, and I think it's also an unspoken thing, too. It's not like we actually sit down and plan what we're going to do. We just do each song the best way we know how.
