Personal Quotes (4)

We thought about when we were selling 5,000 copies of our record a week last year, when all we wanted to do was start selling 150,000 records a week, right. And now that we're doing it, we don't even think about it, all we ever think about is time off! I think we'd almost give up one week's sales for one week off. Give up 100,000 records just to go to Hawaii.
We are four lucky bastards -- not a day goes by that I don't wake up and think, 'I'm thankful to be able to play music for a living. And to be heard.'
I will never put another human being in front of my band. Ever. Do you have any idea how hard it is to tell a woman you love that if it ever came down to her or the band, she'd be packing her suitcase? I mean, you never want to explain it quite like that.
If my music is fucking up your life, change the station, dude. At the end of the day, I'm just some guy who sings in a rock-and-roll band. I'm not Hitler.
