It's been said to me that I'm self-destructive because I'll walk away from things that are good.
I'm still an idealist. My manager is always trying to talk me out of it, but that's just the way I am.
The best bands kept making records and had this evolution, where by the end, by their commercial phase or sellout phase, the records are from outer space.
I try not to become friends with musicians, but life happens and dinner happens and going out happens - it becomes interwoven in L.A.
I have a hard time repeating myself.
