I always find the mirror in the dressing room is where the best artists are.
I keep falling off the edge of the stage because I can't see it. I can't see my wrinkles in the mirror either, though.
I love discordancy. It makes people ill at ease and wakes up a part of their brain that's normally asleep.
You need the past as a guideline. The history of music is a good basis, but to escape that stuff, that tortuous rulebook, you have to learn it first. It's kind of like religion - once you've written the Bible, that's it, move on.
I'm sort of of the belief that people kill themselves from the inside out. When they're unhappy with what they're doing, or not achieving things - when your focus is off-kilter. The thing that keeps me ticking is my values. And I maintain them, because they're worthy. I like to wake up and feel I've done no wrong. I like that feeling.
No matter what you experience in life, it incorporates political tendencies, and in so many ways.
