If I was a billionaire, I’d be smart with my money.
Hawaii is paradise. It sounds cheesy to say it, but there’s music in the air there.
I think that success is having fun.
Music is not math. It’s science. You keep mixing the stuff up until it blows up on you, or it becomes this incredible potion.
I tend to overthink things. I’m not the guy who screams ‘This is a world smash!’ when I finish a song.
I don’t try and be dark, but there are obviously darker emotions that I want to capture sometimes.
Someone told me something that stuck with me: ‘You have to envision your life, and then go backwards.’ I’ve been living by that motto for a while, so I see where I need to be. Now I’m just backtracking and trying to get back up there.
I don’t like two stories. I like one story. I never grew up with stairs. I like to stick to what I know.
There’s always a bittersweet kind of thing, but I feel like everything had to work out the way it is. Everything that had to happen, happened.
I love the Sex Pistols. I’m a big Beach Boys fan and a huge Zeppelin and Queen fan.
I can’t even speak Hawaiian, but if you go there and listen to a Hawaiian song, you get captured because it’s so beautiful, like the melody is just gorgeous and you know Bob Marley is on the radio every single day. It’s very reggae-influenced down there. Basically, you haven’t been to paradise if you haven’t been to Hawaii.
You pick up some fans and a handful of haters along the way.
