I’ve always been too self-conscious. I think I was too self-conscious to ever say, I’m gonna be a musician and I’m gonna have a band and I believe in myself and we can do anything, ‘cause believing in yourself doesn’t mean that you’re guaranteed anything.
In music it’s important to see someone being themselves, even if it means they fuck up. At least I am a real person and people can relate to me in that sense, you know? At least I’m not promoting an unrealistic vision of what people should be. I kind of wish there had been someone like that when I was younger.
