I used to have a sort of spiky haircut and it just feels better to have short hair again.
When there are no women on the tour it can get awful and ugly - constant horrible jokes and gross behaviour. It needs to be leavened with a feminine presence.
But Sneaky Pete was great. I didn't bug him about Gram. Not too much, anyway.
I don't like alcohol, but I still like to mess around with other stuff occasionally. I think it's important I take mushrooms and acid. They're certainly not addictive, so I can't rule that out.
I guess I'm about ready to promote myself in a more human way. I don't feel quite so insecure.
I'd forgotten what it was like to play music and have it be fun so I decided to stop. I wasn't even sure if I was going to make a new record, I was just kinda quitting.
Even the bands I dig don't have a history of attaining mass consumption.
For me, it's all about The Dubliners by James Joyce. I love The Dead.
I was hanging out with Jonathan Richman last night.
I have to make rock records occasionally.
I lie around and play guitar, that's something I do for sure. In fact that's all I do, I think.
I need the money. People don't understand how little money you make in a band.
I've got time, I hope, to make lots of quiet records. So quiet you won't be able to hear them.
It is hard, though, 'cos record labels love to boss you around. I won't let them do that anymore.
My high-school dream was to be in a band, pay my rent and eat - and I've been able to do that for 20 years. So I'm completely content.
