Rob Thomas, Matchbox 20: Ever since I can remember, I've always wanted to tell stories, but I never had the patience to sit down at a typewriter and write short stories or anything like that. I started writing songs as a way of communicating ideas the best way I could.
Adam Gaynor, Matchbox 20: When we play live, that's the real matchbox twenty. There's Kyle and me, playing guitars and singing harmonies, there's Paul wailing on the drums, there's Pookie running around playing his bass, and on top of all that, there's Rob's incredible voice. It's about as energetic and as raw of a sound as you can get, and we wanted to put that onto our record.
