According to his mother, he is most relaxed when he's onstage.

Jenkins is unapologetic about the delays, saying he was winnowing the song list -- from 25 to 14 -- and rewriting lyrics. In 1997, after more than a decade of struggling -- living in the Lower Haight, sleeping on floors and subsisting off Top Ramen and the generosity of friends -- Jenkins hit it big with "Semi-Charmed Life." The album has sold nearly 6 million copies and spawned such hits as the eponymous title track, as well as "Jumper" and "How's It Going to Be."

A lover of language (he was a literature major in college), Jenkins anguished over words and metaphors, rhythm and rhyme.

Jenkins, who suffered from dyslexia before the condition was well-known or understood, was held back a grade.

I've had a lot of sexual experience in my life, I'm not going to have someone see me as a kid."And then he stormed off!

That lass was really rude to Jonathan, calling a guy your on a date with a kid, say you can’t imagine him having sex.

Halfway through the leisurely afternoon meal, the cafe's genial owner, Pierre Chatel, ventures over to ask Jenkins about the progress of the album.
