“Forever Young was the easiest and hardest thing I have ever written. It was easy lyrically, because I was always writing very shortly after my brother died, as a way of getting my head to shut up. The hard part was just editing it, earlier versions of this song were much longer. There’s a lot to say when you lose someone in such horrific circumstances, it just isn’t always easy to say it. It’ll always be the most important thing I ever do, for you Shaun, love always, Jim.”Jimmy Herrity
