Quebec City is the most European of any city in North America; they speak French all the time. There is a part of town called Old Quebec which is really like being in France. The architecture is just gorgeous, food, shopping. I'd say Quebec City is the most beautiful city in North America I've seen.
I used to live in Canada. It's a beautiful country with a lot of different kind of topographic regions.
Being a cover artist is not like being a real artist. That's just copying what someone else did.
They have had such a crazy life living with me as their dad. Not crazy but different from their friends.
I get noticed for different things I've done in different areas of town. If I'm in a rock club, it'll be Skid Row, if I'm in a mall it's the 'Gilmore Girls.'
I had to get out of my record deal that I signed with my previous band and get a full solo record deal going so, with all of the paperwork that, that entails it did take a while.
I'm a TV junkie. I'm always flipping through channels.
I went to audition for an episode of 'Law and Order,' and they didn't understand why I was talking so fast, and I was like, 'No, you don't understand. I was on a show called the 'Gilmore Girls.' We had to say everything like that.'
I write my lyrics into the computer and I hum my music into the dictaphone.
My vocal style is called bel canto, which is an old Italian vocal style going back hundreds of years.
It's weird, like, my life has always imitated art, and my art has always imitated life.
I never really knew what fine cuisine was when I was a little boy in Canada. For me, Italian food was 'Kraft Dinner' or pizza. When I moved to New York, that's when I discovered all the Italian food.
I got the whole band set up in the basement and we are jamming.
Nobody wants a fat lead singer.
Twitter is the new rock magazine of the modern age. When I was a kid, we had magazines and journalists and interviews and articles and pinups and posters to follow our favourite artists. Nowadays? Twitter is actually the new rock magazine.
I'm always working on new songs. With the technology these days, any idiot can record on Pro Tools on your laptop. All you have to do is plug a microphone into the input jack and anybody can have their own recording studio. So I'm always down in my basement, singing along to riffs or whoever I'm collaborating with.
My first band, Kid Wicked, we did half covers and half originals.
They don't have the edge that I need. I'm not interested in reliving 1988.
Maybe one day I can have a reunion with myself.
Maybe if they start playing new rock bands videos, then maybe but there is no point in a guy like me spending 250 grand for a video that no one is ever going to see.
