Matchbox 20’s Rob Thomas talks songwriting

I got to open up for Matchbox 20 back in 1996 or so at the Electric Lounge in Austin, TX. All the guys in the band were really cool, very down to earth.

Here’s a YouTube video where Rob Thomas talks about his songwriting process:

Quote from Bob Dylan

“It is the first line that gives the inspiration and then it’s like riding a bull. Either you just stick with it, or you don’t.”

Watch this video of Bob Dylan performing “Like a rolling stone” in 1966. This man knows how to ride a bull.
