It's very expensive to bring a band to New York.
I haven't done rap... I can't do that too well.
I started listening to and playing other music in the '90s. It was after hearing other bands, like Bad Religion, cover Ramones songs that I started to like our songs again.
I like the guitar better these days. I like the bass, too, but it's hard to fit a bass amp in a small car.
I got tired of the Ramones around the time I quit and I really got into rap. I thought it was the new punk rock. LL Cool J was my biggest idol.
Metallica - they're so demonic, they're crazy, I don't know how they do it.
I'd like to congratulate myself, and thank myself, and give myself a big pat on the back.

I like California a lot more than New York these days.
