Peter may have inspired me for the song of the new format. We have a drive and a sense of freedom on stage, and in the rest of the experimenting and move forward intuitively, enjoying the process. A couple of days ago I wrote a girl who was at our concert, she always only listened to rock, but the meaning and message of the songs was depressing her, and in us she found the combination of rock drive and catchy soft tunes on the positive, and that she’s happy. Well, then I’m happy!—
