When I give a speech, they usually mention in the introduction that I’m a musician and songwriter. I often lead off with this joke. “My musician friends always ask me why I sold out and got a real job. It’s really simple. I like to live indoors.” It usually gets a laugh.
It’s also a softer version of the truth. I don’t want to become Uncle Lloyd.

I’ll be 57 next year. Got a lot of work today.
