Andrew Wood’s death changed things for a few weeks. I probably got even heavier into drugs after that.
I found out through the Internet that I have AIDS. I learned that I was dead. Where else would I find these things?
I don’t think any drug that can cause brain damage, failing kidneys, hardening arteries, pain, and suffering should be made available.
I was in a band when I was 15. We were a glam band. Then I couldn’t afford to buy makeup. At the time that was the thing.
Our perception of songs that we’ve written… the meaning changes from day to day… to whatever stage we’re at in our life and careers.
We started this band as kids, and as time has gone on, we’ve grown and are learning to accommodate each others’ differences.
I’ve always looked for the perfect life to step into. I’ve taken all the paths to get where I wanted.But no matter where I go, I still come home me.
I don’t take part in it the way I used to-the bimbos, the free beers, free drugs, all that. That’s still there if you want it, but I don’t really seek that out any more.
The songs are about things that we were thinking and we wrote ’em down, and when you listen to ’em, whatever you think it’s about… THAT’S what it’s about!
My bed isn’t made, I’m tired, I haven’t slept well for two weeks. I haven’t been laid in a month. I don’t have a girlfriend. I have a warrant for my arrest.
We survived a Slayer crowd every night for about 50 days and thought we could do about anything after that.
Whatever dramas are going on in my life, I always find that place inside my head where I see myself as the cleanest, tallest, strongest, wisest person that I can be.
Kurt and I weren’t the closest of friends, but I knew him well enough to be devastated by his death. For such a quiet person, he was so excited about having a child.
It was all about music, about getting your friends to come and see you play. I don’t see that same intimacy happening very much today.
