Most Proud of Janie’s Fund (janiesfund.org): His foundation that helps young victims of abuse.
And his grandkids: daughter Liv’s kids, Milo, 13, Sailor, 3, and Lula, nearly 2; and daughter Mia’s son, Ax, nearly 1.
All-time favorites Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison. “Everybody I listened to when I was younger.”
Hero Janis Joplin. “She inspired me to be a rock star, to sing and to wear jewelry—just to have a voice.”
Dream duet(s) Paul McCartney. “I was sitting with him the other day and said, ‘I don’t even know how to say this, but I’ve got a bunch of songs that I haven’t finished that I’d love to play you.’ Who hasn’t said that to Paul McCartney?”
And Lorde. “There’s a couple songs that I’ve written that are in the spirit of ‘Dream On’ and ‘Seasons of Wither.’ They’re melodic, with a thing you can hang your hat on with feeling. I don’t really know her, but that’d be fun.”
Inspired by Dave Grohl (“one of the happiest people I know”) and Oprah Winfrey (“She’s just full of the dickens. She’s met and talked to so many people and all their spiritualities rubbed off on her.”)
