'I've been working with Union Station for 26 years now and with all the differences in personality, not being family, being raised all over the country and having different tastes, it is amazing that we've stayed together' I grew up in Illinois, and my parents listened to classical and folk, especially Hank Williams, but as a teenager it was my friends who lived across the park who introduced me to ELO, AC/DC, the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin.
So I have pretty eclectic taste, but it’s nothing on Robert Plant.
I always know if something is working because I feel it in my bones – my recent album was tough to make as I couldn’t get that feeling so I just had to stop.
Robert and I did it to have fun and see what would happen, but to start with it was very scary because both of us were out of our comfort zones.
I’ve worked and travelled mostly with men since the age of 12.
You can only get so close because you’re not involved with them relationship-wise, but I’ve had some great long friendships with men.
'Recording with Robert Plant was like jumping off a cliff.
Robert and I did it to have fun and see what would happen, but to start with it was very scary because both of us were out of our comfort zones' I had to take a break from the new album because I was worrying over it so much that it gave me these killer headaches.
He asked me if I thought there was something wrong with him because apparently his kids tell him they want ‘a real dad, a normal dad’ and instead they have this big kid. He’s very passionate and excited about a wide variety of obscure artists, which is what makes him so much fun to work with.
I do have one but it lives in the basement and comes up to the house maybe once a year when friends come over and want to watch a big football game or similar.
It’s old and pretty pathetic and it sits on a tom-tom drum and everyone who sees it makes fun of me. Home is home and about family so I’ve put them all away.
He’s a great guy to spend time with – and as a singer, to watch how he works was amazing.
Every time I talk to him we discuss doing the next one but when that will come to fruition I don’t know.
