Henry Gross Quotes
Mostly I write for myself. I was just listening to a playback of two songs, one of which is on my new CD, but we've done another version for the Nashville market. And another song I'm writing with a producer named Tony Battaglia, who has produced acts like Shine Down and Mandy Moore. He's very successful, probably my best friend. He's one of the very successful producer / songwriters in the last few years. We actually write together over the phone.
Sometimes you just sit down and it flies out. Other times it's real work. (laughs) I'd say the inspiration is quick when it comes. But, the actual work of bringing the inspiration to something that's kind of good, takes a lot of work.
I love the fifties music. Actually that was my favorite music that we did and it probably still is. I loved doing it but I wanted to grow musically out of that as a writer and a performer. So, I thought my interests would best be served by moving on and the group's interest would best be served by having someone who wanted to keep doing that right then and there. But, it was no bad thing about it. I love the guys. I love the group. They still go on. I haven't seen them perform in years, but I'm sure they're still great. And, I'm still friends with several of the guys who were in the group.
