If people say something rude or off-color, you have to take it with a grain of salt, because they don't know you.
Maybe some people thought I was 'safe' so they didn't really bothered to vote for me at all.
I don't want to say I can't wait to get back to normal life, because I don't. I don't want to get back to normal life.
I will continue to pursue my music and live my life with my family.
As a kid, I was heavily into martial arts and wanted to be the next Jean-Claude Van Damme.
I wanted to be a martial arts film star when I was a teenager.
For me, something will come in my head and I'll either end up calling my cell phone to record it, or I'll just pick my guitar up and see what comes out. Sometimes it sucks, sometimes it doesn't. So there's really no set method behind it.
I think if I try to develop a formula, it ends up not working.
I get to hang out with Billy Bob Thornton at his house. We hang out over there every time we're in L.A., because he doesn't go out. We'll hang and he'll play us some of his tunes. It's pretty awesome.
I think I definitely enjoy recording, but I think it's more fun to go out and perform live, because it's like instant gratification, you know? You feel the response immediately.
You marry somebody; you love everything about them. You grow to learn about them. You never learn everything.
I just like music. If it's hookey and good, I dig it.
It doesn't matter how good you are as a band or how good your music may be; if the fans aren't supporting it and buying your music, it's hard to make it.
When I got into music, I wanted to learn guitar just enough to be able to write songs. I wanted to be able to express myself.
I'm living my dream now.
