I never watched 'Cheers,' actually.
The whole background of 'Avian' is rain. I was just playing with textures and realizing you can touch music.
With 'Blue Slide Park' I wanted to have a number one album, and I did do it, so I'm not mad at it, but that was its goal.
Every single person in my life and every relationship I have is distant because all I do is music.
It never gets boring for me because there's so many different things to explore in the studio. The studio's become the sanctuary that people have come in and found new things out about themselves, as weird as that sounds. But it's true, I'm no different. I've made some crazy hard records, and I've made a jazz album.
I just have to accept that I won't ever be Al Green, which is a hard pill to swallow.
