#Quote
1I think there is a difference between making music and writing songs, and to me the words are the core - that's where the character and the story is. I'm fascinated with what a song can be in the eyes of history, a snapshot of an era. You get an insight into cultural mentality and society's values, hopes and fears.
2We are in a self-obsessed moment of mankind. Everything is marketed towards the idea of the self, but not the real self - rather, what you want people to think you are. Social media is an advertisement for the superficial extroverted self...The idea that people would spend some of their own human experience discussing the most trivial everyday experiences of somebody else's life I find strange and very sad in many ways.
3I always loved in blues music how the devil can be a character who walks and talks, so awful,in your state that it seems to be a presence around you. I don't don't spend time thinking about the nature of God, but I'm interested in what people say about God, how it is used to control people and change policies in the physical realm.
