I don't exist without writing.
I don't see the world unless I see it in ink.
I find you get out of people what you put into them.
I grew up doing live tours and playing in bars, so it was what I love to do.
I have a sneaking suspicion that all religions lead to the same place, a very unified place.
I love being in a band.
I love playing big rooms. There's nothing like it. It's a power trip.
I never found much comfort in overly organized religion of any sort.
I think when kids just see well-crafted poetry, it's just obtuse to them. It's hard to relate to.
I would always encourage people of any age not to be so quick to follow other people's truths but to search and follow your own moral code and live by your own integrity, and mostly just be brave.
I'm not a partygoer.
I'm not a wild and crazy person.
If I'm a phenomenon, it makes me feel like I have no purpose.
Love bravely, live bravely, be courageous, there's really nothing to lose. There's no wrong you can't make right again, so be kinder to yourself, you know, have fun, take chances. There's no bounds.
Most of us don't spend any time knowing ourselves. We just keep reacting.
On my own I generally have very messy hair, wear jeans and sneakers.
So what are we given? We're also given, my generation, the disillusionment of our parents.
The writers I respect the most had an undying commitment to a vision.
Writing is a really good first step toward that goal of knowing yourself.
You have a different crowd every night, so you should do a different show to suit them. I tailor the show to their mood.
