Darren: The world of music is constantly changing, not just the technology but there's still great new music being created, and every time you plug in your guitar or whatever instrument you play, it's still fun to do, so I completely understand what you are saying. There are things to learn and new people, new producers to work with etc. Could I ask you outside of Bon Jovi, what occupies your time?
Richie: Well I'm a single dad so that takes a lot of my time. That's one of the most enjoyable things in my life. I'd have more kids if I could find the right receptacle (laughs). I have actually been working on an interesting thing. I have a clothing line that I have been working on which is pretty crazy. It's just for women and I came up with this title which is White Trash Beautiful. We tried to write the song Jon and I but it was a bit too misogynistic coming from a guy talking to a chick, so we shelved it and never really went back to it. I'm walking around my house one day and I thought, you know what? That sounds like a clothing line. So I started to put this thing together. The interesting thing about it is ... what I am going to do is distribute music on the clothes on a G drive.
