He drew inspiration from his childhood when he wrote songs for "The Last Ship," which is based on his experiences of living in Northern England and watching the demise of Britain's shipbuilding industry in the '80s. The musical also inspired the rock star to produce his first album of original material in nearly 10 years, which will be released in September.
