I'm actually a massive dork; people just don't know that.
I reckon I'd be probably, like, in the gutter somewhere if I didn't have music.
I wrote 'Jungle' in my bedroom when I was having a manic time with a particular girl. Everyone thinks it's this really upbeat song, but it's not; it was just a really manic time, so I wrote a song about it.
Music is multi-dimensional: it's all in the feeling. Sometimes I feel like looping; sometimes I don't. Sometimes I want to strip it back, play instruments I've never played before.
A lot of marathon runners access flow state. That's why it's so addictive: because they just get into this state where they're just completely one - they are in complete oneness. That's what happens to me when I play music and, I suppose, a lot of other people, too, which is why we do it.
I construct myself and do things how I want to do them, because your artistry is a very precious thing - it's ultimately your whole life if you want it to be.
I just have this real love and connection with what I'm doing when I play music.
I've got an awesome career happening, and I absolutely am so stoked with how it's all worked out.
I've got a lot of pedals and a lot of knobs that need to be switching around during my performance, so I've taught my toes how to do that.
It's like being in a trance, like I get this electric current through my fingertips. Sometimes I shake. People say I look like Hendrix when I'm about to rip a solo because I move my shoulders like he does and do the chewing.
