    I don't know if it's possible to affect my ego any more. There's no room left. For me, I think I make music like the way I think it should be made, like what rock should sound like.

And when something sounds different, I think that can be inspiring to other musicians.

    I don't know why people don't want to talk about their numbers. I guess in a sense, there's a bit of performer nudity, a bit of ego nudity when you expose your numbers, I guess because someone's are higher or someone's are lower. I've never really talked about the numbers with anyone, so maybe I'm not supposed to.

    If the ego is in the slightest way separated from its source, it yearns to find it again. This search comes from the remembrance of unity and plenitude.

This remembering is awakened through those moments of desirelessness and in deep sleep.

Nature is wonderful, nature is beautiful, but you have to work it out.
