Q: Great new album! Who comes up with the music for the band? Does one person write all the songs or is it a collaborative thing?
A: I'm glad you like the album, Thank you! I wrote all of the songs on the Carnival Smile by myself, with the exception of "You Scare Me To Death" and "Forces Of Nature" which were written by myself and Rick Johns. - Michael Anthony Smith
