I have to write and play. If I became an electrician tomorrow, I'd still come home at night and write songs.
If they had told me I was the janitor and would have to mop up and clean the toilets after the show in order to play, I probably would have done it.
I had tried to go to college, and I didn't really fit in. I went to a real narrow-minded school where people gave me a lot of trouble, and I was hounded off the campus - I just looked different and acted different, so I left school.
I've had an experience through music that has touched almost every part of me. It educated me in ways that I didn't get educated in school. So we try to lay on a bit of that, through being funny, being serious, playing hard.
