I'm a collecting maniac and I buy a lot of books and records. I have over thousand cds.
I love Johnny Cash but I don't love country music that much.
Some genres I'm not a huge fan of but there are always exceptions that break the rules. There are always a few people doing it in a way weird enough to grab my attention.
Well, for us, it's always better not to have too many expectations and to just go with the flow because then it's always a big plus no matter what happens.
Music's always been really cathartic. It's the best drug for me to get away from the everyday pressures just for a second via a good song.
I love hearts. They are symbols for life, love and humanity.
They'd double-booked the whole place, so at the same time, Playboy was shooting films there. So we're in this nunnery where Playboy models were hanging around, and we were talking about porn and recording a rock record pretty good combination, you know
Los Angeles and New York are the big centers of the music industry worldwide so of course it can be hard for newcomers who don't know what to expect from the music business.
That music and the lyrical aspects of Razorblade Romance is so personal to me that, now with me being grown up a bit and meeting new people and doing new things, it makes me look at the same things I was writing about back in the day through a different colored lens.
It's like that with what sort of ideas people outside of the band have of HIM. They all see it through a different lens as well which is beautiful. Hopefully, it makes it an endless topic of conversation.
Talking about covers, whether visually or sonically, if a particular combination of notes struck a chord in your heart in a way that you want to be a part of it by covering that song, then there's nothing wrong with it.
