In Their Words: “Driving has always been a kind of therapy for me. It’s where I do a lot of personal reflection and allow myself to sink into thoughts and feelings that I need to work through. Around the time I wrote ‘Memories and Throttle,’ I was trying pretty hard to win back the affections of someone that was pretty resolute in their position. I would get in the car and a thousand different scenes would play out in my head, each one ultimately leading to the same outcome. But even when I’m in a better place and not longing for some lost love, I still find myself going back through past relationships when I’m on the road. It’s a nostalgia trigger, and it’s addicting.” — Michael Paul Lawson
