"I used to have friends come on tour and work as my drum tech, but they get bummed out when I have to tell them what to do. This time I'm just going to fly them out and let them hang. It's all good."
"I'm not a singer who plays a bit of drums. I'm a drummer that sings a bit".
"Almost everything I've done, I've done through my own creativity. I don't think I ever had to listen to anyone else to learn how to play drums. I wish I could say that for about ten thousand other drummers".
"I wanted to play drums because I fell in love with the glitter and the lights, but it wasn't about adulation. It was being up there playing".
"It's been years and years and years I've been playing the drums, and they're still a challenge. I still enjoy using drumsticks and a snare drum".
"I never studied anything, really. I didn't study the drums. I joined bands and made all the mistakes onstage".
