Paradise Valley came out of needing to make another record. It’s not slapped together, but if I’d spent a year writing Paradise Valley, I would’ve written a song that kicked off "You’re No One ‘Til Someone Lets You Down." I would’ve had too much time, and I would’ve thought, I don’t like "Badge and Gun" anymore. And I would’ve put something else on and it would’ve been a completely different record.

There are just a couple other things I’d like to play from Paradise Valley if my sets were longer. It’s really hard to be like, here is "You’re No One ‘Til Someone Lets You Down," but I’m going to take away "Vultures" to play it. I’m working on getting those guts to be able to go onstage and send some people home sort of pissed off for the larger good of having the crowd say, “Wow, you never know what he is going to do.”
