Q

Are there any songs you would like to cover? Is there anyone who you would like to hear cover your songs?

I play a lot of cover songs, have not recorded them yet (aside from "Variations on Paint it Black"), you'll hear them sprinkled occasionally in live shows.

One of my very favorite things in the world is to create a cover of a song that you would not envision me doing...and making it my own. I love that challenge. In fact, that's a great deal of what keeps me motivated when I am working on (or struggling with) my own songs.
Many people are asking me to record a covers album, and I am choosing which ones I'd like to include. Stay tuned!

Wow--as far as someone covering ME? That's a great question. I would have to say Robert Smith (the Cure) and David Bowie, as they were my two biggest vocal influences and our range, theatrics, and elocution is very similar-- it would sound really incredible.

I have heard David J (Bauhaus/Love and Rockets) sing a cover of "Evil Night Together." He sings it SO differently from me! It was quite amusing to hear it.
Thanks for an entertaining question.
