Hay's justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he's made 11 solo albums and is confident that Gathering Mercury is the best of the lot. "These are some of the strongest songs I've ever written," Hay says from his home studio in the hills of Topanga Canyon.
