In a sense, terrorism blossomed in the advent of television. Television promotes terrorism in religion and in politics.
Living in Hollywood, it's easy to have someone flatter you. That doesn't help me.
I'm my most creative between 3 and 5 a.m. That's the way I've always been.
I used to have nightmares about the Antichrist - what would happen, where it would come from, and who it would be.
My dad being a salesman taught me you can sell anybody anything if you've got the ability to believe.
My dad loves what I do and I support my parents financially because they didn't have a job that gave them a pension.
There's just no great rock albums anymore. There's a lot of rock music out there, but it's very bland and disposable.
