We talked with Joey about everything creative:

  • How to master your ideas
  • How Joey’s book did a great job of breaking down the creative process into discrete pieces
  • How Phil’s experience with design and marketing made him a better musician and songwriter
  • A story from the book about Herbie Hancock and Miles Davies
  • Plagiarism vs. Inspiration, and how art is about combining things, not creating things
  • Is it possible to know too much about your craft?
  • The role of the ego in creativity
  • The great thing about being “weird”
  • The value of specificity in your creative acts
