ANY PRE-SHOW RITUALS: I like to take about 45 minutes, if I can, to shut down, shut the brain down, anywhere I find myself a little corner, dark corner, if I can go back to the hotel, I'll do that. It's just something I gotta do. To center, stop the machine. Wake up, do a little vocalizing, open up and then be ready for… a Vitamin C, Emergen-C.

NAME ONE INSTRUMENT YOU DON'T PLAY THAT YOU WISH YOU DID: I wish I played guitar a little better, actually, I play, I play enough, but not like my buddies.
