  • Edward Pearce from Ashford, Kent, EnglandCole is currently the manager for the popular American band Lifehouse aand is heavily involved in the creation of their records.
  • Tim from Denver, CoThis song is from one of the greatest, most underrated albums of all time. Reprise Records really dropped the ball on this one. Every song is better than the one before it. "Start the Car" and "Falling Home" are two other albums by this man that should have done better sales-wise than they did. Jude, you deserved better!
