The very first time I heard the first record, I was like, ‘Hmm. This is pretty cool.’ And then it hit me. Then I was like, ‘Oh shit. This is incredible. Man, I want to be in that band.’ And here I am.
I wanted to be a visual artist because I grew up around a lot of painters and photographers and had a very artistic upbringing. And I fantasized about being a drug-dealer when I was a kid. I thought it would be a good opportunity; I knew that the market would be strong. Is that bizarre?
