6 Revelations from Rob Thomas
The Singer, Now on His Cradlesong Tour, Talks Music and More
I wish I was a good guitar player. If I could have done anything differently, I would have taken lessons as a kid. I'm a much better piano player.
I have a few, but my wife [Marisol] and I won't get off the bus. We love it. Once, when we were at home, she goes, "I miss the bus." I was like, "You're the greatest woman on the face of the earth."
ALSO ABOARD THE BUS...
My dog Samy [a Pomeranian, left]. When he sees the bus pull up to the house, he freaks out and runs straight to it and starts tearing up and down the aisle.
My BlackBerry has about 40 song ideas on the voice recorder from random moments when I'll get a great idea, like riding in a taxi or in a hotel room somewhere.
ONE SONG HE WISHES HE'D WRITTEN
Tom Petty's "Square One." But there are so many. Every time I hear a great song, to me, it's a magical thing.
Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica stands out to me every time we go there. It's, like, one of the top five Italian meals you'll ever have in your life. It doesn't matter what you order, it's all good. All of it.
