i dont know if this could be considered an achievement but having my wonderful seven year old makes very proud
Well, more like I'm proud of NOT doing it. A band that I was in was offered a one-album deal with a small label when they were still new (the album is actually the first full-length that was released on the label) and I wrote 2/4 songs on our demo. <br />
I refused to go record because I thought it would be a mistake. They left me with the stuff I wrote, kicked me out of the band, and went to record anyway. They split up while they were still in the studio, only 1,000 copies of the album were pressed, and they never toured to support it so that band no longer exists. <br />
I said it would be a mistake.
Thanks. It's usually right. Sometimes when the instincts say, "the time isn't right for this," it only makes sense to listen.
I left school at the age of fourteen with no qualifications and worked my way up to become a senior manager with one of Europe's largest companies
I can tell true stories of debauchery, crime, and insanity without being dead, in jail, or in a mental institution.
Yeah, I do, but noticed that I said TRUE stories.
Yeah, I am, more so than people take me for. You still don't believe me, though? That's okay. It's better that way. I'm just saying I have some interesting stories to tell, and love to tell them, but only to certain people.
I didn't write these stories. I, along with people I've known, lived them. In real life.
I've been told that I should. I even think that I should, but I just never feel like doing it. I probably will, eventually, as some people have said that if I wrote a book based on my life, someone would probably make a movie based on it, and people would probably dig it. All of it's been a big influence on my music, at the very least.
i have never been arrested
