=> Yes, folks! Nevertheless, he's very much looking forward to hittin' the road again and get that album done. But that is kinda boring, he feels, towards the end and it's hard work. So go to rollingstone.com and read what he has to say about that... however, although the pics there are really nice, I for one like the picture of him at the german Rolling Stone issue much better, hehehe...

Just see the Tweet by 'Just Pete' on Twitter for the tongue-pic and have a look at the Twitter-video from Focborough - I'ld say, we're on to something new coming up!
