Ford has just released his first solo album, Weary And Wired, and has reunited with his very first signed band, Burning Tree, after 17 years.
He says its cool, but different being back together with his old bandmates.
Says Ford: Our musical chemistry is still amazing, but weve all grown up so much in the last 17 years. We arent screwing around anymore, and were not on rock star ego trips, so its different than when we were young.
Ford admits that fatherhood has also slowed down his rock star ways, but says its also helped him remember the excitement of the biz since his own son, Elijah, plays guitar in the band with him.
Says Ford: Its so cool seeing my son follow in my footsteps and experience the rock lifestyle. Hes already a pro at the rock star look and at signing autographs. Better than I ever was!
Ford and his band start their European tour this May, but Ford insists he wont be partaking in overseas rock star antics like bar hopping or trashing hotels rooms.
Instead, hell spend the time with his wife and kids, and in his words, be the Partridge Family of rock.
