"When I sing, to me every word had a feeling about it. I had to linger, had to hold it. I didn`t want to let go of it. I want to hold one word through a whole line of melody, to linger with it all the way down. I didn`t want to let go of that no more than I wanted to let go of the woman I loved. I didn`t want to lose it."


"I`m not really a lazy guy, but I got tired of holding high notes for a long time. Instead of straining, I just let it roll down and it felt good to me." - commenting about his singing style.
