I believe I love my guitar more than the others love theirs. For John and Paul, songwriting is pretty important and guitar playing is a means to an end. While they’re making up new tunes I can thoroughly enjoy myself just doodling around with a guitar for a whole evening. I’m fascinated by new sounds I can get from different instruments I try out. I’m not sure that makes me particularly musical. Just call me a guitar fanatic instead, and I’ll be satisfied.
“Being hot” is not why I do what I do, I do it to share my music and my life with anyone that will listen. No one dislikes being complimented about their appearance but I really believe that everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin because of who they are and what they stand for over anything else.
“We’re at least attempting to portray ourselves as real as we can. I’d like to think that there’s sincerity and honesty, not necessarily just within our music but with the way that we carry ourselves after shows and before shows. I’d like to think that that’s as close as who we are.” +
