"The only criticism that stung is that the album should have had more of the energy of the musicians and those who inspired it... a bit more anarchy, a bit more punk. We didn't want a pastiche of the era so we put all those 70's and early eighties influence in the juicer and a blend emerged... more like an Irish whiskey than a single malt."

Larry's tattoo from the Songs of Innocence album is based on Native American mythology, it's the Pawnee tribe and it's a symbol of protecting the innocence. He got it done when his son, Elvis, was in the womb.
