I never decide if an idea is good or bad until I try it. So much of what gets in the way of things being good is thinking that we know. And the more that we can remove any baggage we're carrying with us, and just be in the moment, use our ears, and pay attention to what's happening, and just listen to the inner voice that directs us, the better.
Everything I do, whether it's producing or signing an artist, always starts with the songs. When I'm listening, I'm looking for a balance that you could see in anything. Whether it's a great painting or a building or a sunset.
It's a big theme in my life, learning about myself and being a better person. I'm a work in progress; I have revelations every day.
I never really think so much about commercial success; I usually just think about records that move me, and 'Baby Got Back' was one that moved me.
For me, the Beatles are proof of the existence of God.
