We had gone back and forth for a few months and we were making logistical plans. I was just coming out of the woods as far as my personal stuff was concerned, and I was The Orb - Ill Be Black (CD) to get my head a little bit straight. So a lot of lot of this material The Orb - Ill Be Black (CD) about that trauma and that experience.
We just tried to work through it as best as we could, The Orb - Ill Be Black (CD). Everyone had some sort of association with Neal, including Dave. Neal had sort of helped him along as an up-and coming-guitar player. So it was a healing and cathartic experience for all of us to make the record. I knew it was going to be to some degree while working with Neal. But I had no idea it was going to be that kind of experience afterwards.
How can you know? He says that it was his involvement with his long-tenured band 6 String Drag that became the main reason for the delay. The band had been on an extended hiatus when they finally reformed in Once Roby reconnected with his former bandmates, he decided to continue with their comeback for a few more years.

That was happening to me at the same time as my marriage was splitting up and then I was back in recovery, and sort of getting my head straight and grounded in life. He originally had 25 songs written and recorded, and from that number he narrowed down his choices to a still bountiful I waswilling to let them happen. I was a conduit, and so I kind of just got out of the way and chose not to have any filters and be as honest as I could. It can be tough, but the songs just sort of happened through the process of doing a lot of writing.
Not surprisingly then, Roby has his own theories about songwriting, based entirely on his own experiences. Then I forget about it, and I sit down later and do the work. In the case of his new album, he let the ideas flow naturally.
You can get in the flow, but you also have to go to the river everyday. I was open to letting that happen, and doing the work, and having the discipline. A lot of these songs are about me. In general, I kind of let them happen.
