I have never acted in one and I'm not at all interested to do so either.
Even at school I studied ethics instead of religion.
I love Johnny Cash but I don't love country music that much.
Unfortunately we just toured the East and West coasts so we didn't run into any rednecks.
I hate it when bands do that; they're so proud of their new album, they have to play all of it and a couple of golden oldies.
I haven't travelled that much before so this is the first time I get to see the big cities of Europe. I've never even been to US.
I love the Ronettes, the 'do-run-run-run' pop stuff. I love the lyrics, having 'blue, blue blue' being repetitive.
The guys in Kiss use some make up too so at first it was exiting. I've almost stopped using make-up nowadays.

I love the song 'Into the Night.' It's Roy Orbison meets David Lynch meets Iggy Pop on amphetamines. It has a punk edge that is not HIM, per se. It is super melodic and super '60s, and that is very new to me and it is a sense of achievement to me.
I think if we keep on doing good music and people like us and they buy the magazine because we are in the magazine then they cant basically hate us hopefully.

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.
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.
We started playing music from an early age and so we wasn't really aware of that side of it, the weird thing is the more successful you get the more free booze and drugs you get, they should be given to the bands who don't have the money.
