"I've had a few onstage marriage proposals – those are pretty brave. In each case, the guy tracked me down online and asked if he could propose to his girlfriend onstage during the show. Twice the women said yes, once no. That one was a bit depressing, but good for her for not succumbing to the peer-pressure of 500 people in a room shouting at her. The best one was in Seattle, where after the 'yes' I launched into a spontaneous cover of the Old 97s "Question;" the couple was hugging, the crowd was cheering – a truly romantic moment for all involved."
