The rock vet reflects on his past with new orchestral album 'So There' (Sept. 11, New West).
Did you really throw your cell into a pool in Los Angeles like you claim in "Phone in a Pool"?
Yeah. It upset me that people were upset I didn't call them back. I'm a people-pleaser and really impulsive. I threw it in at the Sunset Marquis [in Hollywood ] in 2010. I didn't think anyone was there, but Kesha was. She jumped in the pool with all her clothes on, fished my phone out, told me to put it in rice. The next day she got bronchitis.
You sing that you weren't the person you used to be in "I'm Not the Man." What did you mean by that?
