Times change and you have to adapt.
Part of the healing process is sharing with other people who care.
And when power ballads come back, we'll get big hair again.
Like everybody, I'm making up my life as I go along.
You feel different every day of your life. You just have to create your own space to survive, personally and professionally.
Our music's kind of about taking something ugly and making it beautiful.
I can sing fine and I can play guitar fine, but put 'em together and it becomes a thoughtful effort.
I'm going to keep thinking about topping myself every time. I can say very confidently that Alice In Chains have done that on every record. It surprises me. I don't go in there expecting that, but I do go in there hoping for it.
In '98, I locked myself in my house, went out of my mind and wrote 25 songs. I rarely bathed during that period of writing, I sent out for food, I didn't really venture out of my house in three or four months. It was a hell of an experience.
Rehearsals and this band are two words that don't really go together, kinda like Military Intelligence.
I've been a fan of Metallica and friends with those guys for a long time and that was just great - half Alice In Chains and half Metallica playing together.
I've never been a big soloist; I just put in what needs to be there. I'm more of a rhythm player who plays lead - or tries to play lead.
I'm just thankful to have a tour and work something I can focus on.
To me not one thing is better than anything else, I'm completely proud of everything I've written and recorded.
