I plan to stay in music. I plan to keep making records.
I bought one of those Learn How to Play Guitar Chords By Yourself and it shows you the diagram where to put your hands and I took that in my room, sat with my singles and learned how to play guitar.
My parents taught me I could be anything in the world I wanted to be.
I love school. I was a great student.
We always play clubs. It’s not something that I feel above. Those are my favorite shows because they’re intimate, they’re tight, their sweaty, they’re hot. You’re close to the people. Those are my favorites.
So it was out of necessity that Blackheart was born. I think it’s great that now, 25 years later, we’re not only putting out our own music, but are able to put out music by other bands. That’s really exciting for us.
I think what I’m going to do is get more balance in my life to still be able to go out and play the hard rock ‘n’ roll and do what I like to do in music.
Def Leppard is obviously a different band that we are, but the music work well tighter. And the audiences seem work well together too. We are opening, but we’re having a good time.
I wouldn’t say no to other kinds of musical opportunities. I guess that it just depends on what it was or what it required me to do, and if I felt that it compromised my own soul.
I don’t know if I miss it per se, but I do miss the fact that there just doesn’t seem to be any rock ‘n’ roll out there anyplace. Everything does seem kind of tame. It’s even hard in Manhattan to go out and find a good band to go see.
I’ve been doing this stuff for so long it’s the one aspect of my life that I’ve paid attention to and really sort of not paid attention to the rest of it.
You know, I have a really tough time finding new bands.
You follow any family around, you’re going to see elation, you’re going to see disharmony.
We were really grown up for our age and it was an incredible special band.
Things work in cycles.
