In other words:

On writing songs with Benjamin for The Lace: “I kept hearing this song coming upstairs from the studio and one day he said, ‘Hey, do you want to try writing lyrics with this song?’ and I said, ‘Sure.’ And I said, ‘How will you know whether it’s going to work or not?’ and he said, ‘I’ll know immediately. If it works, it works.’ So we wrote ‘Stay The Night’ and it came very easily, and it was smooth, and he seemed to like my work, so we continued on from there and we wrote eleven songs.” — Diane Grey Page, “Rock Of The World” interview with host Phil Harvey, 1986

Quoting Benjamin

On how solo work is different than his work with The Cars: “I had a lot more to do, basically (laughs). It was like, constant… you know… 13-hour shifts in the studio, where, more or less,  the other Cars’ albums I’d be there for oh, three or four hours a day.” — “Rock Of The World” interview with host Phil Harvey, 1986
