‘No Bones’ has some reverb that I kick around.
All labels are offensive in some way.
Generally my songs are just some riffs slung together as an excuse for a guitar solo.
I enjoy having some boundaries to work within. That’s why I generally don’t like alternate tunings and stuff like that. I like the boundaries of regular tunings.
I have a couple of gold teeth. I had braces for a year but I didn’t wear the retainer.
I play a Fender Jazzmaster and three stacks and a combo, two old Marshall Plexis and a Hiwatt combo and a Hiwatt combo with Marshall cabs.
I prefer cynical people. Nice guys grow on trees.
I was just reading about Paul Simon in ‘Uncut’, and it was fascinating. I never think about him much or think about his music or anything, but it’s interesting to hear his ideas on stuff.
I’ve always worn earplugs, but I’m sure my hearing’s not great.
I’ve never liked rehearsing too much.
It’s good to have certain restrictions sometimes, but it’s definitely more fun to play really loud, with distortion.
It’s harder to play drums than guitar, physically. I’m always kind of on the edge. I guess that’s how I play everything: on the edge of my ability.
People have to do what they want to do.
Usually I like to have them, but going drum-less pushes everything in a new direction and makes it easier to keep things sounding different.
When I play a solo I’m just expressing that moment. It can go horribly wrong easily enough.
Yeah, you know, I’m always into cassette. At least they seem to be the longest-lasting medium we used to have. I don’t play cassettes much anymore, but I play records all the time.
You might as well play at the show everyone else is playing at.
