I don’t really care about the lies or the myths. The most important thing is the music, the honesty with which it was executed. The other thing is, we were living in our youth. I’ve had a lot of people say to me, ‘I grew up to Led Zeppelin.’ Well, so did I.

Some people have a hard time explaining rock ‘n’ roll. I don’t think anyone can really explain rock ‘n’ roll. Maybe Pete Townshend, but that’s okay. Rock ‘n’ roll is a lifestyle and a way of thinking… and it’s not about money and popularity. Although, some money would be nice. But it’s a voice that says, “Here I am… and fuck you if you can’t understand me.” And one of these people is gonna save the world. And that means that rock ‘n’ roll can save the world… all of us together. And the chicks are great. But what it all comes down to is that thing. The indefinable thing when people catch something in your music.

My first love was candy. First memory too. She was huge, round, rainbow-spiraled and lived just out of my reach on a candy cart at Disneyland. Shit, story of my life.

Hey dude in the third row, who are you texting? You right there. Look at me. Who are you texting? Better be something important. Get the fuck out of here…

I’m sorry. But I’m not.

Just to clarify, don’t-don’t even bother yelling out songs tonight. Just don’t even fucking bother. Because… here’s the deal, and I’m going to say it quick, right? You know, I don’t know if you’ve heard of this band—um—Pearl Jam. I don’t know if you’ve heard of this band. We actually put out a few good things over the past few years. But you know I-I’ve been doing set lists in this band for 17, 18 years. So I fucking know what I’m doing with the set lists, alright? I don’t need any help. I don’t need help from any fucking rookies, alright? And, to add to that, I’m gonna play shit that you couldn’t even fucking imagine. I’m going to play songs that I didn’t even know that I knew. In fact I might not even know them. We’re gonna find out.

How can you not help but be emotionally connected to music? Music is the fabric woven into our hearts and lives.
Dori (Me, like just a second ago on Facebook. But I thought it was very much pertinent.)

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Yeah, usually what I do is make sure that she gives me a hand job right away, just to relieve that tension. You know, ‘This is kinda awkward, baby, could you jerk me off?’

I think that to live a life of expressivity is paramount. To me it is the embodiment of freedom. I don’t have a particularly specific statement that I am trying to convey; like the Romantic’s Manifesto, or something akin. I am more interested in existing in a continual state of creativity. To be able to see the art in every occurrence. To find beauty in the mundane and in the otherwise trite and or trivial. My life, as it were, is not unlike one of my drawings; a continually evolving, bulbous, mass of thought, after-thought, absurdity, intention and enthusiasm. Scribbled happily in ink without pencil lines and signed at the bottom.
