“The main thing is, you’ve got to remember, with anything that is based on talent, that a certain amount of divine intervention comes into play, so you have to allow for that. But as far as what you can do yourself, it’s very simple: Get in the van! Henry Rollins said it, and it’s so true.
You’ve got to get out there, you’ve got to get heard. You can’t wait for people to come to you, ‘cause they won’t. Go get it. And if it doesn’t come, go get it harder.
So many people quit too early; they figure it’s too hard. Well, of course it’s hard! It’s supposed to be hard. But the struggle is the beauty in the end.
If people say you’re no good, screw ‘em. Anybody who’s great has been told they were no good, so it doesn’t matter. That’s my advice.
Get going, keep playing, don’t stop. The minute you stop… everything stops.”
