For me my friendship with Omar Rodriguez from Mars Volta that friendship really means a lot to me because he's another creative person who works as hard as I do.
I find that the best way to do things is to constantly move forward and to never doubt anything and keep moving forward, if you make a mistake say you made a mistake.
I would say a lot of the emotion in what I do is a sort of a thankfulness for those energies being around, because there's been points in my life when they weren't around, and it's a real sort of miserable existence.
For me it's important to be in balance. To not let fear get in the way of things, to not worry so much about protecting yourself all the time.
Everything's very perfectly balanced; for all the horrible things in the world there's lots of good things.
And this whole period of time of gradually working at being a better guitar player and songwriter have gradually led me to the point where I feel I'm doing a clearer representation of the thing that I've been feeling inside me since I was four years old.
You just never know when somebody's gonna die. It could happen at any moment so you've got to really treat everybody that way. Just really let everybody know how you feel about them.
I feel like I'd like to continue putting out records and start putting them out more rapidly than I have until now and for me if I can keep selling the records to the fans that already like me that's fine.
And for me the only way to live life is to grab the bull by the horns and call up recording studios and set dates to go in recording studios. To try and accomplish something.
I think the feelings in my music were suggested to me before I even had the ability to play music.
I try to put the same spirit into that that I put into any other music endeavor I'm involved in.
Rock music is electronic music, dependent entirely on electronic circuitry and amplification.
I think a solo moves forward the way a song does, because it's reflective of the chords that I'm considering as I'm soloing, and at the same time I'm going as much out on a limb as Frank Zappa used to, in terms of just going crazy on the instrument.
Yeah, I really like being alive. But I definitely don't have any intentions as an artist.
I'm not interested in meeting people's expectations, and I'm not interested in pleasing people.
