# Quote
1 [on re-imagining an earlier composition] Once you start playing it, it’s amazing how you can put yourself back into that mindset of how you felt when you wrote the song. You can reignite a point-of- view, and a good feeling about playing it, even though initially your instincts said: ‘Oh, I can’t play that song anymore – that’s too dated’. But your can. You can go home again.
