Lots of people think Vultures is about fame and the entertainment industry, but it's not. It's more about where my confidence comes from.

So for "Vultures" [from Continuum, 2006], I have to play the gold-leaf Strat. That's what I wrote the song on, and that's got that incredible second position - what do they call it, the quack? That's the quackiest Strat of all time! "Vultures" does not work on another guitar. That weird, hollowed-out, out-of-phasey-type sound.
