I’ve been going through my own sort of crisis if you like, of late — trying to make sense of it all. There’s a lot of contact, a lot of traffic, but very little dialogue. So people are texting each other, but actually having zero dialogue at all, or very little. They’re not saying anything. Because they’re not real conversations. ... Because there is no emotion, or very little. And if there is emotion, it’s contrived emotion.

You start to sweat across your forehead and you're like 'Oh my God, I can't believe this is happening. The whole entire world is watching.' But have you ever noticed when you think you failed, it's the ego in your mind that tells you It's so bad and everyone is looking at you. And none of it is true.

When you're doing great you shouldn't listen to that voice. When you're not doing as great you shouldn't listen to that voice.

Life is a rollercoaster. There's valleys and peaks. When you hit that valley, if you can't deal, then you won't make it. So switch the word failure for lesson. All successful corporations do that. It's called R&D. So, you don't have failures. You have research and development. You just have to change your perspective.

There's no such as thing as failure.

It's really upsetting that artists I respect think we are not capable of making a moral decision ourselves after all these years. They talk down to us and I just find it mind-boggling that they think they have the right to do that.

Rock is finally dead. . . I am so sad that the next 15-year-old kid in a garage someplace in St. Paul, that plugs into his Marshall and wants to turn it up to 10, will not have anywhere near the same opportunity that I did. He will most likely, no matter what he does, fail miserably.
