I also did some jail time a few years ago. Spent a whole summer in jail reading books. I pumped a ton of new knowledge and new thinking into myself.
Aerosmith's 'Rocks' is on the list of my top favorite albums of all time.
There are things you do that just come natural, and sometimes those are amazingly in synch, and sometimes they're horribly out of synch, and you're like, 'Ooo! That wasn't very good tonight.' Most of the time, it's just on.
The horses forced into the chuckwagon races die of heart attacks, broken necks, broken legs, and other injuries. It'd be easy to get off on western tradition without this bloody spectacle. Dude, it's the Old West, not ancient Rome!
The best thing about being rich is the freedom; freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want. It doesn't suck.
The Radiohead record, The Bends is my all-time favorite record on the planet.
My house is really clean. It's a really big house so I have three ladies who come in and clean it twice a week, but let's just say that, in between times, maybe it's not quite so clean.
Getting married in four days was the biggest... mistake I've ever made. I have two beautiful kids, but... how can you know somebody in four days? Bonehead.
I'm still that rowdy dude who has after-parties in his dressing room with a concert-sized PA system blasting away.
I'm always getting injuries like bruised and bloody knuckles from catching a cymbal or the edge of a drum.
Why is it that the hot chicks never can sing?
At 17, I signed a recording contract right out of high school, so I started touring and traveling the world. I sort of missed out on the college experience.
The quad toms are a completely different animal than the standard drum set/trap kit. Playing wise and stylistically, they are two different beasts.
I've always gravitated towards the beats, obviously. And when I was growing up, I always loved funk music or even - dare I say it - disco.
Too many drummers sit at the back covered in drums, and you never see them.
Most drummers are covered with a million drums, and everyone is like, 'What are you doing back there?'
Drumming's pretty physical. We sit at the back of the stage getting beat up like a workhorse.
It's always interesting to me that we all hear music differently. It's an awesome experience to hear what other people hear.
One of my favorite things in the world is to be seeing two people that are really old, still holding hands, still kissing.
I don't listen to anybody's full record anymore and when I did, I don't think I listened to the whole record. I'm sorry, and I don't care who it is, if it's the Beatles, I can't listen to an hour and a half of anybody straight so I guess that's just my personal preference.
