(from Rolling Stone
magazine Issue 1049): "'Come Around' is very much about you've come through all this s--t and everyone's still here. So let's go play. Let's go play rock & roll. It's not about life being fine. It's just that, it's not fine, and I'm still not going anywhere. My life in the '90s, it just didn't seem bad then. After the Millennium, things started to seem really darker to me in L.A."
