I would really really nice of them to do you know Atlantic records you know our label that that shot down -- on her you know a over a decade now.

To -- and I -- -- California and -- -- not to -- to that -- How many screaming teenage girls were there. It must've been how are radius. Well they didn't get the Nokia. Which is right beside it -- and I wish you weren't you know lakers play so it's a big area. You know using what they do red carpet -- downtown. You know Hollywood -- -- you know make a little bit more quite getting off topic the -- because some of those kids were had they have been waiting in line.

Her further for her record. And you were armed. A delta fly and the it was before they actually put the changing tables and some of the plane in the -- Burma. So it was just you know Pierre get on a plane to -- really really all you got elected not to even exist then you know I think to the right -- you -- -- toilet. So taking it in the air he need to be changed like having him on the I think it like kind of balance. Cam at the same government you know these turbulent flight that we were taken on the New York that was kind of -- an eye opening experience but I'm pretty lucky enough I had an embarrassing moment and it. See different your life becomes when you have a kid because when you're rock star and you're in a plane bathroom before kids. You're trying to join the mile high club after kids you're just trying to find a way to change a diaper. Exactly obviously trying to make sure you know I'm trying to get a little meant to stop screaming bloody murder. Huh. So you don't get kicked off the plane by the ATF for whatever backward direction that it now. Well you get ready to go on the road again at what what's the longest you've been home for any stretch of time it seems like. You've been on tour for ten years.

You know what I'm constantly. Doing something. And it have to relate to you know. Whether it be good bad or whether it's another project I'm involved and the other foreign side of things we. We genuinely love to tour we love the people. And we love the public and we loved the play alive. I mean -- but you know I really really meet personally I want at this time so.
