See, there’s a difference between a passion for music and a passion for all the external things that come along with being in a band. I think about music all day long. When I go to sleep, I think about music. I think about new songs, about old songs, about technique, about arrangements. So, it’s just something that’s built into my brain that I can’t stop. But all of the things, whether it’s doing interviews or signing autographs or going on tour for eight months or whatever, you have to think of it as a luxury.
I’m one of the most fortunate people that I know, because I get to do what I love to do, the thing that I love so much and that’s so big a part of me, I get to do it whenever I want. And I get to do it all the time.
