The songs on The Wallflowers' most recent album Breach seem to be more personal. Is notoriously private lead singer Jakob Dylan, son of folk legend Bob Dylan, opening up a bit?

"I don't really like discussing what songs mean, but inevitably I'm asked," Dylan, 31, says. "I'm painting pictures of an emotion, I'm not always making a point. I'm not always telling a story, I'm expressing how I feel, and the songs reflect how a lot of people may feel." Dylan formed The Wallflowers in 1990, and their self-titled debut album was released two years later. Their second album, Bringing Down the Horse, went quadruple platinum and won a Grammy Award. Breach is The Wallflowers' third album.
